The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.0
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 spacious 2022 Volkswagen Taos is one of the roomiest in the class and comes with good standard convenience features.
