Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Fiat adds the 500X Sport to the lineup. Slotting in above the Trekking, the Sport model has a new front end with LED headlamps and a Sport badge, body-color side moldings, and a restyled rear end with twin chrome exhaust tips. Eighteen-inch wheels are standard, with 19s optional. Inside, the 2020 Fiat 500X Sport features seats with added bolstering, along with simulated-suede inserts and red stitching on both the seats and the restyled, flat-bottomed steering wheel, and aluminum trim on the pedals.

Pros
Punchy turbo engine,
useful driver-assistance aids,
distinctive design.

Cons
Priced high for a subcompact SUV,
small cargo capacity,
cramped passenger quarters.

Standard all-wheel-drive
Comfortable ride

Cons
No cheaper and more efficient FWD model
Competitors offer better value
Active safety tech only optional

For the CX-30's sophomore year, Mazda's made virtually no changes to it other than making Apple CarPlay and Android Auto both standard features. Mazda also announced the addition of an optional turbocharged 2.5-liter engine that makes 250-hp.

PROS
Eager driving dynamics,
near-luxury interior trimmings,
plenty of standard tech goodies.

CONS
Could stand a few more horsepower,
offers little added practicality over the Mazda 3 hatchback,
occasional transmission stumbles.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2021 Mazda CX-30 is great-looking, spacious, and more polished and fun-to-drive than other compact competitors, but it’s a step behind in value and features.

PROS
Great proportions and styling
Polished powertrain
Standard active-safety suite
Spacious interior layout.

CONS
More expensive than alternatives
Frustrating options packages
Lacks a touchscreen
