Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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.

Blind-spot monitor and auto-dimming exterior mirrors are now standard.F Sport Black Line trim level added to the NX 300h lineup.Part of the first NX generation introduced for 2015.

Pros
Great fuel economy for a luxury crossover
Back seat has enough room for adults
Very quiet cabin at highway speeds

Cons
Infotainment interface can be distracting to use
Limited cargo capacity

The 2021 Lexus NX Hybrid's #9 ranking is based on its score within the Luxury Hybrid and Electric SUVs category. Currently the Lexus NX Hybrid has a score of 7.3 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 30 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Gentle ride
Good gas mileage
Spacious interior
Top-notch predicted reliability rating

Cons
Distracting Remote Touch controller
Small cargo hold
Sluggish highway acceleration
Heavy body lean around turns

Even though the subcompact NX is on the far side of the age curve, Lexus hasn't made any major changes to it for 2021. Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert is now standard, as are power-folding exterior mirrors with an auto-dimming function. Inside, Lexus has tweaked the NX's steering wheel and tachometer designs.

Pros
Chiseled styling,
proper SUV seating height,
spacious interior.

Cons
Fussy infotainment controller,
middle-of-the-pack acceleration,
starting to show its age.
