2024 MAZDA CX-30 vs 2024 MAZDA CX-5

Serving Brighton, MI

Mazda’s crossover SUV lineup is more impressive than ever in 2024. The lineup starts with the subcompact Mazda CX-30, which introduces its Carbon Turbo edition in 2024. The Mazda CX-30 is followed by the compact Mazda CX-5, which is unchanged for 2024. You can appreciate numerous similarities between these popular crossovers, but essential differences exist to explore. Our sales associates at Serra Mazda Brighton are standing by to support your model research.


The 2024 Mazda CX-30 packs a powerful punch on the road with its two powertrain options. The base engine is a 191-horsepower, four-cylinder, 2.5-liter system connected to a six-speed automatic transmission. The other trims come with a 227-horsepower, turbocharged variant, and if you use premium fuel, that figure increases to 250 horsepower. Both of these engines are paired with standard all-wheel drive. The 2024 Mazda CX-5 has the same base engine but generates 187 horsepower. The higher trim levels for the Mazda CX-5 feature a similar 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, generating up to 256 horsepower when using premium fuel. These engines are also paired with all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission.


The Mazda CX-30 has smaller dimensions than the Mazda CX-5 and is styled with a low-profile, curved body line. The black molding that starts at the front bumper grows thicker as it extends across the sides. The chrome accent bar below the wide grille turns upward to underscore the slender headlights. The Mazda CX-5 is a larger vehicle with a similar design for the grille and headlights. The profile displays a taller roof with a subtle angle. The sides have thinner molding with slightly angled contouring that converges at the rear fender.


If you opt to drive home in the 2024 Mazda CX-30, your Mazda crossover could be outfitted with leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, a Bose sound system with 12 speakers, a surround-view camera, a head-up display, a navigation system, heated front seats, memory settings for the driver’s seat, a sunroof, an 8.8-inch central display screen with smart device app connections, forward collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping, and numerous additional features. The Mazda CX-5 is available with these features, and select trims may also come with ambient cabin lights, upgraded leather upholstery, wood trim, a wireless charging station, a head-up display, heated rear seats, satellite radio, and several other features.
