This SUV comes with a premium interior, amazing steering and handling, a unique and dazzling style, and a wide variety of standard driver safety features. We're also looking at the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek, which comes with standard AWD, okay fuel economy, a weak engine, and a smaller cargo area than some of the competition.

2020 Mazda CX-30 Power & Handling

There is one standard engine that is responsible for powering the Mazda CX-30. This engine is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder, which can get you up to 186 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is responsible for helping you smoothly shift between each gear. You'll be able to get front-wheel drive as standard, with all-wheel drive being available for all of your other needs. For people who opt for the Premium trim, the only major difference with the engine is the addition of cylinder deactivation. As you can tell, Mazda has put a lot of thought into what the CX-30 offers, and we're really happy with the result!

2020 Subaru Crosstrek Power & Handling

One engine is in charge of keeping the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek moving. This engine is a 2.0-liter flat-4, which can get you up to 145 pound-feet of torque, and up to 152 horsepower. There are two transmissions that you'll find offered with this engine. The first is a six-speed manual, while the other option is a CVT. No matter what, you'll be getting all-wheel drive, which is standard with Subaru models. The biggest problem for the Crosstrek is the fuel economy, which lags behind the CX-30. Beyond that, the engine is fine, although it lacks in overall power, giving you a slower and less exciting ride.
