The staff at Jeff Haas Mazda will gladly explain the differences between the Mazda and the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek to give you a better idea of what makes the Mazda a good choice.


The Mazda CX-30 at Jeff Haas Mazda has an upscale interior filled with many driver-assist safety aids and technology. The Mazda was just launched in 2020, which means that its safety features and technology are still fairly current. The Mazda CX-30 was previously offered with Android Auto and Apple CarPay at the higher-end trim levels, both those features are both standard starting with the 2021 model year. To start with, the Mazda has an 8.8-inch display screen at the base level. It also comes with automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and forward collision warning. Tinted windows in the back, simulated leather upholstery, and automatic dual-zone climate control are added on the second trim level. The Preferred trim, which is third in line, gets a Bose sound system for richer audio quality. It also has heated seats and some minor changes to its exterior design. At the top you’ll get the Premium trim with leather seats, a power liftgate, and a head-up infotainment display. The controls are centrally located and easy to use in the Mazda, and its interior has plenty of space. The Subaru, in comparison, only gets a 6.5-inch infotainment system to start with. The largest display screen you can get is eight inches.


At Jeff Haas Mazda you can also explore the performance features that make the Mazda CX-30 appealing with an online test drive. All trims receive a four-cylinder engine with a displacement of 2.5L. The Mazda’s engine has the same power output on all trims. In total, it creates a maximum power of 186 HP, and it matches that power output with the same amount of torque. All trim levels of the Mazda get a six-speed transmission, and you have the option of getting all-wheel drive across the board. The Subaru is offered with two engines, but neither matches the power output of the Mazda’s engine. The Subaru starts off with an engine that produces 152 HP, and the higher-end engine creates 182 HP at most, which is less than any trim level of the Mazda.
