We know there are a lot of options available on the market today, which is why we are taking the time to narrow down some of those options so you can take a closer look at two of the top competitors. We're looking at the Mazda CX-30 and the Ford EcoSport. The CX-30 is all new in the 2020 model year, giving you a premium interior, dazzling styling, an impressive amount of horsepower, and all of the standard driver safety features that you could ever want.

The standard configuration is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder, which outputs around 186 horsepower and up to 186 pound-feet of torque. The other configuration adds on cylinder deactivation, although it still produces the same amount of torque and horsepower.
