Power for Legendary and Unforgettable Rides

Get ready for a smooth, efficient, and even sporty ride when you take command of a 2020 Mazda CX-30. With a standard Skyactiv®-G 2.5L motor under your hood, you’ll enjoy class-leading 186 horsepower combined with 186 lb-ft torque for nimble drives with ultra-fast take-off to get around city roads with ease. Plus, with up to EPA-estimated 33 mpg on the highways, you’ll commute and adventure without worrying about finding a gas station often.

When you need extra grip, available i-Active AWD® sends power to your rear-wheels to help you dominate gravel, snow, and slick roads with ease. Need to navigate through rough terrain? Push the Off-Road Traction Assist Control Button, and you’ll have redistributed torque to help you remain in control when you traverse bumpy streets and trails.

For a responsive and lag-free ride, the standard SKYACTIV®-DRIVE 6-speed automatic transmission shifts through gears at the right moments to optimize your drive. Add in the available steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for precise manual gearshifts when you’re ready to take full control of your ride.

By comparison, the 2020 Hyundai Kona packs a standard 2.0L 4-cylinder motor, which puts out 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft torque with a 6-speed automatic gearbox. You’ll easily navigate your local roads and enjoy a smooth ride, but it’s also 39 horsepower and 54 lb-ft torque less than what you’ll find in the 2020 Mazda CX-30—and you’ll feel the difference in power when you try to bolt from a green light or pass other cars on the highways. The Mazda crossover takes this round for offering more practical power when you need it.

Elegant, Convenient, and Centered around You

Take a seat in the 2020 Mazda CX-30, and you’ll find sophistication and first-class comfort surrounding you on every drive. Available perforated leather upholstery with stitched details craft an upscale look that’s easy to clean and cushioned for full support. Keep your passengers happy for the full ride with the available dual-zone auto controls, where you can blast the heat, your front-row rider can max out the air conditioning, and you’ll both cruise happily at the same time.

Speaking of comfort, everyone inside can stretch out and relax with 94.1 cubic feet of passenger volume and a massive 36.3 inches of legroom in the second-row. Plus, 20.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat is perfect for fitting backpacks, groceries, gym supplies, golf clubs, luggage for a road trip, and plenty more.

When you’re ready to connect to your ride, a standard 8.8-inch center display helps you enjoy HD Radio™, Pandora® Internet Radio, SMS Text message audio delivery and reply. With available Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, you’ll activate your favorite mobile apps hands-free while listening to your music and playlists from your streaming services. You’ll also have eight speakers inside as a standard feature with Mazda Harmonic Acoustics.

Step inside the 2020 Hyundai Kona, and you’ll also find upscale accents like available leather touches for a treat to the eyes. It’s also a comfortable ride with 34.6 inches of legroom in the second row—but keep in mind the Mazda SUV offer nearly two inches more space, which makes a difference when your rear seat riders want to stretch out. Also, you’ll get a 7-inch infotainment screen standard with connectivity to your smartphone. For listening to your favorite music, you’ll have eight available speakers for crisp audio quality.

This round is close, but with more legroom, more standard speakers, and a larger infotainment touchscreen, the Mazda CX-30 takes another round.

Adding Standard Safety to the Smooth Drive

Your safety is never an afterthought in the 2020 Mazda CX-30 thanks to the standard driver-assist features that not only look out for you but also come standard for easy and confident riding. Features like the standard Smart Brake Support detects cars, pedestrians, and bikes ahead, and sends you a warning when you’re approaching too quickly. To help you avoid a fender bender, your Mazda crossover applies automatic braking if you don’t take corrective actions.

For easy highway driving, Lane Departure warning sends you audio, visual, and tactile alerts to grab your attention when you accidentally leave your lane to let you know to re-center. For more help, Lane-Keep Assist throws in gentle steering inputs to prevent you from exiting your lane, which helps you avoid accidents from the side, as well as keeps you from cutting off other drivers by mistake.

When you’re ready to combat rush hour traffic with a smooth and easy drive, Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop and Go allows you to drive at a set speed without touching the gas pedal. When traffic ahead slows, your Mazda CX-30 automatically reduces speed to prevent collisions—even coming to a complete stop when needed. It’s an easy way to prevent your commutes from feeling stressed.

Other standard driver-assists include a rearview camera, Driver Attention Alert, High Beam Control, alongside many more. There’s no double you’ll drive easy with so many features keeping an eye on your rides.

When you drive the 2020 Hyundai Kona, you’ll also have Lane Keeping Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Driver Attention Warning by your side to keep your city and highway cruises safe. However, keep in mind Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection and Smart Cruise Control aren’t standard, which means you’ll need to pay for extra re-assurance against fender benders on the road. For offering more standard safety, the 2020 Mazda CX-30 takes another round.
