2020 CX-302020 Crosstrek

2020 Mazda CX-30 vs. 2020 Subaru Crosstrek in Pelham, AL

Though the Mazda CX-30 just debuted to the market this year, it’s already making quite a name for itself in the subcompact crossover segment, and competing with the longtime fan-favorite Subaru Crosstrek. Which of these SUVs should you choose? It depends. While the CX-30 is more upscale and well-rounded, the Crosstrek’s main appeal lies in its ruggedness. Let’s compare these two SUVs to see which would be a better choice for you. 


The performance of these two SUVs really sets them apart. Mazda is known for making vehicles with exceptional driving dynamics and fuel efficiency, and the CX-30 truly excels in both categories. The 2020 Mazda CX-30 is powered by a 2.5-liter I4 engine with 186 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque, while the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek runs on a 2.0-liter flat-4 with 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. In addition to the extra power you’ll get in the CX-30, it offers a more refined drive and better fuel efficiency, helping keep your gas mileage high on your commute through Birmingham’s busy roads. 

Interior and Comparison

Though Mazda isn’t a luxury brand, and it certainly isn’t priced as one, you’ll find that it offers some of the most refined interiors available on the market. High-quality materials accentuate the handsome, modern interior throughout the trim levels. The Crosstrek, on the other hand, features a more rugged interior that’s more suited to trail life than anything, though it does offer a spacious, roomy cabin. 

Safety Features 

Another area where the CX-30 beats out the Crosstrek is the number of standard safety features handily. Standard safety features in the CX-30 include:

  • Smart Brake Support
  • Lane-Keep Assist
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go
  • Driver Attention Alert
  • Rearview Camera

In comparison, the Crosstrek’s only standard safety feature is a rear view camera, and the brand’s EyeSight® safety suite is not standard until the top trim level.
