Drivers looking for a fun-driving crossover will like what both the 2020 Mazda CX-30 and the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek bring to the table.

To help you figure out which model you’d rather cruise in around Willow Grove, Willow Manor, and Glenside, our Sussman Mazda team took a deeper dive into the specs and features of the Mazda CX-30 vs. Subaru Crosstrek below.

A Look Inside the MAZDA CX-30 vs Subaru Crosstrek

MAZDA CX-30 vs Subaru Crosstrek Willow Grove PA

The Mazda CX-30 has an interior design that verges more on the side of luxury than your standard crossover, like the Subaru Crosstrek. Within the 2020 Mazda CX-30, you’ll get standard premium features like:

  • Push Button Start
  • Sport seats
  • 8-speaker audio system
  • 8.8-inch center display

The 2020 Crosstrek interior doesn’t offer as many amenities. It comes with basic cloth seats and only a 6.5-inch display and a simple 4-speaker audio system. It also doesn’t come standard with Push Button Start, so you’ll need to go with a higher trim level to get this added convenience.

Which Model Offers Better Performance?

Time to turn to performance. Yes, the 2020 Crosstrek handles extremely well, as most Subaru vehicles do, but the Mazda CX-30 is just as impressively smooth as you hug tight corners and make quick maneuvers.

Additionally, the 2020 Mazda CX-30 will actually accelerate more quickly when the light turns green or after you make a turn at an intersection. That’s because it comes with a more powerful engine.

Under the hood of the 2020 Mazda CX-30 is a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that creates 186 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. In the 2020 Crosstrek, you’ll find a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. This lags behind as it produces only 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque.

  • Smart Brake Support
  • Driver Attention Alert
  • High Beam Control
