Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Bronco Sport is an all-new model that's intended to serve as a smaller alternative to the larger Bronco. Although neither Ford has been officially revealed, we've heard lots of rumors and seen a lot of spy photos. The most recent images appear to show a production-ready Bronco Sport before its official debut in April, which is expected to follow the big Bronco's reveal date.

A new off-road capable SUV based on the Ford Escape.

Pros
More all-terrain capabilities than your typical SUV
Smart features for both adventures and everyday use
Lots of customization options

Cons
Rugged styling
Three-cylinder base engine is likely pretty weak
Last-generation infotainment system

The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport carves out a new all-terrain niche for one of the most beloved off-road names in auto history.

Pros
Smart echoes of the past
Strong turbo-4 power
Off-road potential
Hybrid to come
Good-looking—and a good value

Cons
Light on towing capacity
More Bronco II than Sport?

Perhaps we need to stop calling these cars SUVs, because the new Mazda CX-30 is really just a Mazda 3 on stilts, and all the better for it.

Pros
Excellent dynamics
Interior fit and finish
Audio and infotainment system
Active safety features
Exterior and interior design, practical, makes more sense than a Mazda 3

Cons
Ride felt a tad firm (European spec)
Expected price premium over the Mazda 3
Infotainment housing a little old school
Fits four adults at best

Slotting into the Mazda SUV lineup in the narrow space between the subcompact CX-3 and the compact CX-5 is the new—and curiously named—CX-30. Why isn't it called CX-4? We asked Mazda: It's kind of a long story. Regardless, we like the way it looks. Mazda's designers gave it a more severely forward-canted rear window and chunkier black-plastic body cladding to help differentiate the 2020 Mazda CX-30 from its other crossover siblings.The 2020 CX-30 shares much of its mechanicals and platform with the all-new Mazda 3 sedan and hatchback, so we expect it to have a 186-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, a six-speed automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive. It's possible that Mazda's new gasoline-powered compression-ignition engine—which the company calls Skyactiv-X—is likely to be available in the CX-30 at some point down the road.

Good car, the Mazda CX-30. Handles well, looks smart and has a lovely interior. But as is always the case with crossovers – the conventional car on which it’s based (in this case the Mazda3 hatchback) is the sensible buy.

Pros
Good-looking,
decent to drive,
lovely interior.

Cons
Cramped rear,
old-fashioned auto.
