mazda cx-30

When you think of a crossover SUV, you likely imagine a compact vehicle with premium capabilities and plenty of interior space. The 2023 MAZDA CX-30 and the Subaru Crosstrek both provide this experience, but the Mazda CX-30 comes out ahead due to its use of luxurious materials and myriad of available features.

Performance Showdown

When it comes down to pure numbers, the Subaru Crosstrek never reaches the impressive heights of the 2023 Mazda CX-30. The Mazda CX-30 comes standard with a SKYACTIV® engine that produces 191 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque compared to just 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque from the Crosstrek.

Both vehicles have an additional powertrain option, but once again the Mazda CX-30 beats out its competition. The 2.5-liter direct-injection SUBARU BOXER engine inside the Crosstrek has been re-tuned to provide 182 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque, but the 2.5-liter turbo engine inside the new Mazda SUV is capable of 191 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque.

Interior & Technology

It’s also important to compare the way that these two vehicles stack up in terms of their interiors. They both aim for a wide-open cabin with plenty of space for gear and passengers while still maintaining a premium look and feel, but the 2023 Mazda CX-30 wins out with its elegant design.

The interior of the Subaru Crosstrek aims to be both durable and fashionable, resulting in materials that simply aren’t as high quality as what you’ll find in the Mazda CX-30. You’ll be able to opt for perforated leather with premium stitching in a range of sophisticated color palettes.

When it comes to tech and safety, both vehicles come standard with some form of driver-assist technology. The Subaru Crosstrek has standard features like Subaru EyeSight, Pre-Collision Braking, and Adaptive Cruise Control, but the Mazda CX-30 introduces more innovative features like Traffic Jam Assist and an available 360° View Monitor.
