2020 Mazda CX-30 vs. 2020 Subaru Crosstrek

If you’re interested in subcompact SUVs, the chances are high that you’ve come across the Mazda CX-30 and the Subaru Crosstrek in your research. Both are highly competitive vehicles in their class with a myriad of impressive specs and features, but which should you drive home in? When deciding between these two popular SUVs, you’ll want to consider a few key factors.


Mazdas are known for their outstanding fuel efficiency, sporty driving, and tight maneuverability, and the CX-30 is no exception. A 2.5-liter engine with 186 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque powers the CX-30 and offers more power over the Crosstrek’s 2.0-liter engine with 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. The CX-30 comes standard with a continuously variable transmission, whereas an automatic transmission is only standard in the upper trims of the Crosstrek and available for an additional cost in lower trims. Additionally, the only drivetrain available for the 2020 Crosstrek is all-wheel drive, while Mazda gives drivers the option between front and all-wheel drive for greater customization. Those interested in saving more at the gas station (and aren’t we all?) will be delighted to know that the standard Mazda CX-30 offers greater fuel efficiency over the Subaru Crosstrek’s standard configuration.

Interior and Amenities Review

If you’re looking for an upscale interior with an expansive yet refined list of premium amenities, look no further than the 2020 Mazda CX-30. Even in the base trim, the CX-30 boasts an 8.8-inch infotainment display, which is significantly larger than any found in the Crosstrek. You’ll also find that the standard amenities in the CX-30 are impressive, with a heads-up display, power-liftgate, push-button start, and an electronic parking brake among them. Optional features include rain-sensing windshield wipers, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and rear air-conditioning vents. These premium features set the CX-30 apart from its competition, making it the perfect vehicle for drivers who need the space of an SUV with luxurious amenities for the everyday urbanite.

Safety Features

Both automakers, Mazda and Subaru, are committed to safety with their intelligent safety feature suites, though only the CX-30 offers their bundle as a standard feature. Giving you more peace of mind, the CX-30’s safety features include smart brake support, lane-keep assist, driver attention alert, high beam control, a rearview camera, and the Mazda radar cruise control with stop and go – all on the base model. By comparison, the Crosstrek’s base safety features include only brake assistance/override and a rearview camera. If one of your top priorities is enhanced safety on the roadways, you’d do well to choose the 2020 Mazda CX-30.
