We’re Looking at the MAZDA CX-30 vs. the Hyundai Kona

Let’s face it, there are almost too many subcompact SUVs to name. It can be overwhelming to choose which one is best for you. We’re stacking up our MAZDA CX-30 at Med Center Mazda against one of its contenders, the Hyundai Kona, so you can feel confident about choosing the Mazda SUV.

Exhilarating Performance

Both of these crossovers are certainly fun to drive. However, it’s tough to beat the performance in new Mazda vehicles. The Mazda CX-30 offers a Skyactiv®-G 2.5 turbo engine, which utilizes the innovative Mazda Skyactiv®-G technology for superior power. It delivers up to 250 horsepower and 320 lbs-ft of torque. The Hyundai Kona falls short with a maximum available 195 horsepower and 195 lbs-ft of torque.

Superior Safety

It’s also tough to beat new Mazda cars and SUVs when it comes to safety. The Mazda CX-30 earned a 2021 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award, which is the top honor bestowed on new vehicles. They must have good ratings in all six crashworthiness evaluations to qualify. The Mazda CX-30 includes the innovative i-Activsense® suite of safety technology, which includes a plethora of advanced driver-assist technology. The Hyundai Kona also boasts impressive safety, earning an IIHS Top Safety Pick award. However, it doesn’t quite compete, without earning the coveted “+”, which is only given to the best of the best.

Spacious Cabin

You’ll find extra space in the Mazda CX-30 cabin. It provides extra space to stretch out, including more front legroom and over an extra inch of rear legroom too. There’s extra hip room in the front and second-row as well. Even with the extra passenger space, there’s still an extra cubic foot of cargo space in the Mazda CX-30, which provides 20.2 cubic feet of cargo space, as opposed to the 19.2 cubic feet of cargo space in the Hyundai Kona.
