2021 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2021 Mazda CX-30

Serving Charlottesville, VA

Are you debating between buying the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek and the 2021 Mazda CX-30? These small crossovers are closely matched in price, but they stand apart in several key areas. By focusing on their differences, you can better determine which of these models is a good fit for your lifestyle.


The Subaru Crosstrek has a low profile with sporty touches from end to end. While it is classified as a compact crossover SUV, it has some exterior design traits reminiscent of a hatchback. This gives it the standout appeal that you can easily fall in love with. The Mazda CX-30, on the other hand, has a sharp nose that tapers into a flat grille. The sides are smooth, drawing attention to the extended angle through the liftgate at the rear.


You will find equipment like a sound system, smart device integration, power windows, power door locks, a push-button ignition, USB ports, and more in both of these models. Notably, many of the features that you may want your next crossover SUV to have are standard in most or all of the Crosstrek trim levels, but they may only be available or optional in the top CX-30 trim level. In addition, the Subaru Crosstrek comes with EyeSight safety assistance technologies.


Both of these compact crossover SUVs have a four-cylinder drivetrain as standard equipment. The Crosstrek is also available with an upgraded powertrain, your choice of manual or automatic transmissions, and up to 8.7 inches of ground clearance. In addition, the Crosstrek has an all-wheel drive as an included feature for all trim levels. The CX-30 has an optional turbocharged engine in higher trim levels.
