The roads are loaded with crossover SUVs these days, as this style is a popular choice for many drivers and families. Given that the marketplace is so saturated with these vehicles, automakers need to make sure they are doing what they can to stand out from the crowd. Mazda is no stranger to wowing drivers with its sharp designs and exquisite driving, providing a dynamic experience for those behind the wheel. Mazda recently introduced the Mazda CX-30 to the masses, and though it is an impressive vehicle, it is not without its competitors. Let’s take a look at how it compares against a similar model in this comparison of the 2020 Mazda CX-30 vs the 2020 Hyundai Kona.
Hyundai is a worthy competitor, and we applaud the Kona for its offerings. The chart below, however, highlights key points that you’ll want to make note of while coming to your purchasing decision.

Both of these crossovers fall within the small/compact SUV class, with the Mazda CX-30 sitting comfortably between the Mazda CX-3 and the Mazda CX-5. Even with it being considered a smaller crossover, the CX-30 provides plenty of maximum cargo space if you need it. Behind the rear seats, you will still have 20.2 cubic feet of cargo space available, which edges out the available cargo space in the 2020 Kona—19.2 cubic feet.
Your tunes will sound great on the eight standard speakers compared to the six offered as standard in the Kona. In the top tiers of the 2020 CX-30, you can even upgrade that to a Bose® 12-speaker premium audio system with Centerpoint® 2 and AudioPilot® for an even more enhanced audio experience. Plus, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® integration start with the Select trim of the CX-30, so if that or the Preferred or Premium trims are your choices, you’ll be able to synchronize your compatible phone to the vehicle and take advantage of select applications, including hands-free voice calls and messaging.
