The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.0
5.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
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 2020 Nissan Kicks is a quirky and cute crossover that’s inexpensive, but some of the details just feel cheap.
