Tech and Safety Features
These two models overlap when it comes to some cabin technologies and driver-assist tools. Both deliver an eight-speaker stereo system, 8.8-inch infotainment touch screen, and voice command capability. You can also select the available 12-speaker Bose® sound system on either one. The Mazda3 comes standard with a few more options than the CX-30, though. It includes Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Monitoring, as well as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ capability.
The Mazda3 and CX-30 offer similar cargo dimensions. The first yields 20.1 cubic feet, while the second yields 20.2 cubic feet behind the second row. Due to its larger size, however, the CX-30 has a maximum cargo space of 45.2 cubic feet when you collapse the back-row seats.
Both models output 186 horsepower for a peppy ride quality that puts the fun back into driving. You can also take advantage of the brand’s exclusive i-ACTIV AWD® technology if you need a bit more peace of mind when driving in different weather conditions. This system helps predict traction loss and distributes torque to the tires that need it most to reduce wheel slip.
The Mazda3 and CX-30 both utilize the brand’s Kodo: Soul of Motion design philosophy with graceful contours that make each vehicle appear to be in motion even when parked. The Mazda3 won the 2020 World Car Design of the Year award and offers the versatility of two different body styles, sedan and hatchback. The CX-30 exterior incorporates black cladding for a more rugged vibe than its Mazda3 sibling.
