The crossover market is super competitive. With more people buying some variant of a crossover or SUV than any other vehicle class, it’s easy to see why. Which is what makes the success of the Mazda CX-30 so notable. In a market where there was already over 100 options to choose from, in just one short year, the Mazda CX-30 became a top contender.
Below, you’ll find our comparison of the 2021 Mazda CX-30 Select and the 2021 Honda HR-V Sport. We’ve compiled details on both vehicles’ specs, starting prices, and standard features.

The 2021 CX-30 has many standard features for such an affordable vehicle. Every 2021 CX-30 has numerous safety features, including forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane departure warning with lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, driver attention monitoring, automatic rain-sensing wipers, automatic high-beam headlights, and a rearview camera. For infotainment features, each CX-30 comes with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, an 8.8-inch infotainment display, HD Radio, and two USB ports.
When it comes to performance, the 2021 HR-V is no match for the 2021 CX-30. The CX-30 base engine has 45 more horsepower and 59 more lb-ft of torque. And even with all that improved performance, the CX-30 and HR-V have almost exactly the same fuel economy. And if that wasn’t already enough, the all-new 2021 CX-30 Turbo has even more power. With its turbocharged 2.5L four-cylinder engine, it can pump out up to 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. Whichever powertrain you choose, the 2021 HR-V doesn’t really stand much of a chance.
