2020 Mazda CX-30 vs 2020 Ford Escape

With the arrival of the first-ever Mazda CX-30, Mazda debuts one of the largest and most powerful subcompact crossovers to the market.

The two models may compete in different size classes, but we’re convinced the CX-30 has some advantages worth considering.

This makes for an interesting matchup, and we’re eager to see the results. Discover which model offers the best overall value in our comparison of the 2020 Mazda CX-30 vs 2020 Ford Escape.

Comparing the Standard Features of the Mazda CX-30 vs the Ford Escape  

Both all-new crossovers pack an impressive standard suite of driver-assistive technologies, including lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high-beam headlights and forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking.
