TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2020 Chevy Trax crossover has a low price for a tall ride height–and not much else. The 2021 Mazda CX-30 is great-looking, spacious, and more polished and fun-to-drive than other compact competitors, but it’s a step behind in value and features. The 2021 Mazda CX-3 is a small but well-equipped crossover available in only base Sport trim.
