2020 MAZDA CX-30 vs 2020 MAZDA CX-5 - Key Differences

2020 MAZDA CX-30 vs 2020 MAZDA CX-5 - Key Differences

2020 MAZDA CX-30 with optional features shown above.

When you’re thinking of adding a stylish and powerful SUV to your automotive arsenal, you might consider either the 2020 Mazda CX-30 or the Mazda CX-5! In our article, we’ll outline some of the differences, so you can decide which one is suited for your lifestyle. Then, visit us at Huntington Beach Mazda to see what both are capable of with a test drive!

Performance

Let’s jump right into the performance details of these two striking models. Revving under the hood of the Mazda CX-30 is a SKYACTIV®1-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that churns out 186 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque to get you to your final destination in a cinch. The Mazda CX-5 is equipped with a standard SKYACTIV®1-G 2.5L 4-cylinder system that produces 187 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque. While the Mazda CX-30 features the same engine across each trim, if you went with the Grand Touring or Signature trims of the Mazda CX-5, you’ll be upgraded to a SKYACTIV®1-G 2.5T Dynamic Pressure Turbo system. Once you’ve pressed down on the gas pedal, you’re going to unleash a massive 250 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft. of torque. One feature that’s only found on the Mazda CX-5 is Sport mode, which lets you experience faster acceleration as well and sharpened throttle response. Lastly, each option comes with the available i-ACTIV®2 AWD system for better traction on tricky terrains!

Interior

Swing open the doors and step inside the 2020 Mazda CX-30 and 2020 Mazda CX-5. Right away, you’ll see optional leather-trimmed front seats in each, however, you’re only going to find ventilated chairs for you and your copilot in the Mazda CX-5. This way, even when the temperatures are at their highest, you'll both enjoy nothing but full comfort. If you aren’t using all of the chairs of the cabin, you can fold down the rear seatback and use the 59.6 cubic ft. of cargo space3 in the Mazda CX-5 to place sports equipment and other items. In the Mazda CX-30, it's 45.2 cubic ft. of cargo room3 lets you easily store shopping bags and other items.  Both SUVs include optional Apple CarPlay™4 and Android Auto™4 capability for access your apps and other media. While eacg feature a touchscreen, in the Mazda CX-30, you’re going to have a standard 8.8-inch screen, while the Mazda CX-5 features a standard 7-inch display. And the standard 8-speaker system in the Mazda CX-30 while 6-speaker setup in the Mazda CX-5 is ready to provide crystal-clear sound as you travel!

Safety

One of the last parts we’ll take a look at is some differences when it comes to safety. One advancement that’s solely standard on the Mazda CX-30 is Driver Attention Alert5, which warns you with an icon on your dashboard if any lack of focus is sensed on the road. On the Mazda CX-5, you’ll be able to count on standard Blind Spot Monitor6, which notifies you if there are any vehicles in those hard-to-see spots as you’re changing lanes, so you can make each switch confidently. This feature is available on the Mazda CX-30, however, if you went with a higher trim level. Last, but definitely not least, both include a Rearview Camera7 to make exiting tiny spots easier, but on the Mazda CX-5, you’ll also find standard Rear Cross Traffic Alert6 to alert you of oncoming cars as you’re reversing.

We hope that our 2020 Mazda CX-30 vs 2020 Mazda CX-5 - key differences near Orange County, CA, show you which one of these models you want to make yours! Stop into Huntington Beach Mazda during our sales hours to see all of their impressive amenities and to find out how easy it is to get the keys with our leasing and financing plans. We can’t wait to meet you!

Great sales experience. Got an amazing price on a diesel cx5 for my father, and Joe provided great customer service. There's a reason Joe has been there for around 20 years: he's simply the best. Make sure you ask for him if you're looking for any new or used Mazda.

One last person I would like to mention is Steve Murga, who also was a pleasure to deal with for the financing. W will definitely be returning to this dealership for all of our future needs!

It was time for a new car and a cousin of mine who had just bought a new Mazda had recommended I check them out. This is my 3rd time buying a new car and I was not looking forward to it because I've always had a problem with pushiness. With that said, Joe was the first one to help me. Let me tell you, Joe was a blessing to work with. He was helpful, knowledgeable, patient, and most important of all, not pushy. I still can't get over it. Every time my new car has come up in conversation with friends and family, I've been telling everybody what a great experience Joe created in buying a new car. He definitely treated me like family.

He was very straightforward with information and did not pressure us to make a purchase. I wish I had worked with him the last time I purchased a vehicle at HB Mazda! Dustin in finance was quick with the paperwork and explained everything I needed to sign. Greg was also very helpful once the car was ready to be driven off the lot. He explained the vehicle's features and helped me to set up Apple Play.

I decided that I wanted a Soul Red Mazda Miata MX5 RF GT with a tan interior and manual transmission. Pretty specific, hey? I contacted Huntington Beach Mazda by internet and they followed up with a phone call. They were able to reserve one exactly like I wanted which was unloading off of the boat in a few days. Ozzie and Tony kept me informed all along the way (the few days wait was torture, but that wasn't their fault!) and a week later I was driving off the lot with my dream sports car. The purchase process was very nice, and I made my deal quickly and the paperwork and financing were terrific. Honestly, I liked everyone I dealt with so much that I probably didn't drive quite my usual hard bargain because I appreciated that these folks hustled so hard for me to get me the exact car I specified. Saturday morning after a minimum of fuss I was driving down PCH in my new MX5 Miata. A week later I dealt with service to have my car ceramic coated, and Chris in service was great. I can tell that I am going to be doing business with these fine people for years to come.
