2020 Mazda CX-30 vs. Its Competition

2020 Mazda CX-30
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The 2020 Mazda CX-30 competes among a growing class of pint-size hatchbacks ready for new drivers and empty nesters.

The Crosstrek is the most off-road ready of the crowd with all-wheel drive and a big hatch.

The Ford Ecosport is relatively new and compact, but buzzes at higher speeds.

The Chevy Trax is aged and cramped, it’s due for a rethink.

The Honda HR-V is the most versatile inside and ready for first-time drivers, but not very fun to drive.

The Hyundai Venue is new and spacious, but front-wheel drive only.
