2020 Ford EcoSport vs 2020 Mazda CX-30

The Ford EcoSport has quickly become an Akins fan-favorite for its spunky character, efficient engines and fun driving dynamics. See how this feisty crossover fares against the competition in our 2020 Ford EcoSport vs 2020 Mazda CX-30 comparison. 

Both the Ford EcoSport and Mazda CX-30 feature enough space to shuttle the whole family with seating for up to five passengers. Unlike its segment rivals, the EcoSport uses a nifty swing gate rear door to access the cargo area. This quirky adaptation requires less swing space than the low-hanging hatchback used by subcompacts like the CX-30, making it a great choice for city-based applications.

Comparing the Performance/Efficiency of the Ford EcoSport and Mazda CX-30  

The 2020 Ford EcoSport subcompact SUV is powered by your choice of two engines. The standard powertrain involves a 1.3-liter 3-cylinder turbocharged engine – the most efficient option between the two models. EcoSport owners with the base engine will enjoy fuel economy figures of up to 27 city/29 highway mpg. EcoSport AWD models are motivated by a 166-horsepower 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine, unlocking the model’s 2,000-lb. maximum towing capacity. 

On the Mazda front, the 2020 CX-30 uses a 186-horsepower, 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder model on all models. Sadly, that surge of power is wasted, as the CX-30 does not support towing at any level. Fuel economy ratings come second to the EcoSport as well. In its most efficient configuration, the Mazda CX-30 offers 25 city/33 highway mpg.
