The subcompact Mazda CX-30 crossover is slightly smaller across most dimensions than the Mazda CX-5. While this is the most visually noticeable difference between the models, there are a few additional differences that you should learn about before you make your next crossover SUV purchase at our Farmington Hills-area Mazda dealership.


The 2022 Mazda CX-30 and the 2022 Mazda CX-5 are almost identical from a performance perspective. Both have a four-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine with a six-speed auto transmission in lower trim levels. In the Mazda CX-30, this powertrain produces 186 horsepower, and it is bumped up to 187 horsepower in the Mazda CX-5.
