2020 Mazda CX-3 vs 2020 Mazda CX-30

For years, the Mazda CX-3 has remained one of the most engaging choices among subcompact crossovers for its premium design and precise handling. Now slotting just above the beloved CX-3, the all-new CX-30 fills a niche for drivers wanting something bigger than the typical subcompact, but just not quite as big as a compact. Discover which crossover proves the right fit when we match the advantages of the 2020 Mazda CX-3 against the all-new 2020 Mazda CX-30 at Gwatney Mazda in Memphis, TN.

In a strategic move to make room for the new Mazda CX-30, the 2020 Mazda CX-3 gets reduced to one trim level this year. The change means drivers looking to minimize on costs can find more features from the base level. For owners of the newest Mazda subcompact, there will be a choice between the Mazda CX-30 base model, Select Package, Preferred Package or Premium Package.
