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.

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

Pros
Agile handling
Smooth ride
Powerful optional engine
Upscale cabin

Cons

Awkward infotainment controls

For 2019, the CX-5 receives meaningful updates that include newly available features, a new top-of-the-line model, and its first-ever turbocharged engine. The latter announcement is the biggest news as we've previously lamented the Mazda's limited powertrain choices. The CX-5 now has an optional 250-hp turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder that pairs exclusively with all-wheel drive and can only be had on the top two models. This includes the all-new Signature model that has a host of luxurious features, such as additional wood and chrome accents inside, ambient interior lighting, brown leather upholstery, exclusive exterior bits, and a 360-degree camera system with front and rear parking sensors.

Pros
Feels more expensive than it is,
gorgeous styling inside and out,
captivating ride and handling.

Cons
Limited storage space,
dated infotainment,
top engine reserved for priciest models.

PROS
Keen handling and steering make the CX-5 enjoyable to drive
Attractive and upscale cabin for a premium ownership experience
New optional turbocharged engine provides plenty of power
Stays quiet at highway speeds

CONS
Base engine's lackluster acceleration
Ride is a little firm for the class
Less rear legroom and cargo room than most competitors
