The 2023 Mazda CX-30 and the Mazda CX-5 are striking crossovers that deliver the impressive features and capabilities you expect from your next vehicle. While there are many similarities, the subcompact Mazda CX-30 and the compact Mazda CX-5 are excitingly unique in many ways. After comparing these popular crossovers in complete detail, which will be the suitable model for you?


These models are engineered to generate excitement and confidence on the road, but there are differences. The 2023 Mazda CX-30’s first five trims draw 191 horsepower from a four-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine. The top two Mazda CX-30 trims have a 250-horsepower, turbo 2.5-liter engine. These systems include all-wheel drive and a six-speed auto transmission. The Mazda CX-5, on the other hand, has similar engines and mechanical features. However, they produce 187 horsepower and 250 horsepower.


The Mazda CX-30 and Mazda CX-5 are beautifully designed with smooth, descending contouring over the sides and rigorous black molding. The Mazda CX-30 features taller side door panels with shorter windows and a steeply-raked liftgate. The hood has a sporty arch, and this pares with a wraparound element on the bumper and a chrome-adorned grille. The headlights add an athletic touch with their thin, angled design. The Mazda CX-5’s roof is curved and drops across a barely angled liftgate—the black grille pairs with a smaller lower fascia and triangular headlights.


The 2023 Mazda CX-30 and the Mazda CX-5 are comparably equipped with the same features. These are a surround-view camera, parking sensors, traffic jam assist, a head-up display, a Bose audio system with 12 speakers, a heated steering wheel, heated seats, leather upholstery, a sunroof, a drowsy driver monitor, Apple CarPlay, adaptive cruise control, Android Auto and numerous others. The Mazda CX-5 also offers wood trim, ambient cabin lights, a wireless charging pad, heated rear seats, and other advanced features.
