Pros
Updated style and interior design
Powertrain options range from sporty performance to efficient hybrid
Sliding second-row seats improve passenger room and cargo utility
Sleek, new rear liftgate design compromises some cargo capacity

The Escape is fundamentally unchanged for 2018, but there are some tweaks to the lineup and to its standard-equipment offerings.The SEL comes standard with leather-trimmed seating, a power liftgate, heated exterior mirrors, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and LED running lights.

Pros
Graceful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine,
smooth ride,
attractive and intuitive infotainment system.

Cons
Less rear-seat and cargo space than the class leaders,
turbo engines return mediocre fuel economy.

The 2020 Ford Escape was overdue for a redesign, but the new model trades style for powertrain choices.

Pros
Lots of engine choices
Clean interior design
Good standard safety gear

Cons
Light on cargo space
We’re waiting for mpg ratings
Bland styling

By:

Turbocharged four-cylinder engine added to the lineup.Apple CarPlay and Android Auto now standard.12-speaker Bose stereo available with Premium Package only.

PROS
Upscale interior design and build quality
Advanced safety features come standard
Poised handling and refined ride quality

CONS
Transmission can be slow to downshift
Significant rear blind spots
Below-average fuel economy

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
