White 2022 Mazda CX 30

At Med Center Mazda we know that our customers keep coming back for both the quality service we provide as well as the wide selection of Mazda vehicles available at our Pelham, Alabama Mazda dealership. Today, we want to highlight one of our premium vehicles on the market: the 2022 Mazda CX-30.

If you’re shopping for small SUVs, the Mazda CX-30 should be at the top of your consideration list. To illustrate just how incredible this vehicle is, we’re going to pit it head-to-head with one of its biggest competitors: the 2022 Kia Seltos.

Under the Hood Comparison

The 2022 Mazda CX-30’s standard engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 186 horsepower which is paired with a six-speed automatic which chooses gears wisely based on driving conditions. A turbocharged 2.5-liter engine is optional and provides 250 horsepower; selecting this powertrain also adds all-wheel drive. If you’re a fan of the Mazda 3 hatchback, you’ll find the CX-30 just as nimble, athletic, and fun to drive.

Its crisp steering and fluid body movements make it a pleasure to pilot on a twisty road and provide a sense of stability when cruising. A CX-30 with the optional turbocharged engine delivered substantially quicker acceleration times and managed a 5.8-second zero-to-60-mph time.

Meanwhile, the Kia Seltos offers two different four-cylinder engines in the Kia Seltos: a 2.0-liter that makes 146 horsepower or a turbocharged 1.6-liter that pumps out 175. These numbers don’t even come close to the CX-30’s horsepower.

The Mazda CX-30 also gets better mileage and has a cheaper MSRP when compared to the Kia Seltos. Most drivers agree that when behind the wheel of both vehicles, they feel safer in the Mazda CX-30.

The Verdict Is Clear: The 2022 Mazda CX-30 is The Only Correct Choice!
