Customers sometimes ask us which 2021 Mazda SUV is the best one to buy. With four models to choose from, it’s hard to call one model the best. The answer depends on your needs and preferences. Do you want a subcompact SUV like the CX-3 and CX-30, a compact SUV like the CX-5, or a midsize SUV like the CX-9? Whichever Mazda SUV you decide on when you visit a dealership like the Gilroy area Mazda dealer, you’ll get a vehicle that delivers attractive styling, class-leading handling, outstanding performance, and exceptional reliability. We’ll examine highlights of the different Mazda SUVs to help you decide which is best for you.
2021 Mazda CX-30
The Mazda CX-30 is the automaker’s latest SUV. This subcompact model was introduced in North America as a 2020 model. As far as size goes, the CX-3 fits in between the smaller CX-3 and the larger CX-5. According to the Mazda Dealership near Gilroy, the CX-30 is a popular model, thanks to its ample passenger and cargo space, lavishly appointed interior, and powerful optional 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 250 horses and 320 lb-ft of torque. The CX-30 comes with a full complement of driver-assistance features.
2021 Mazda CX-3
The 2021 Mazda CX-3 is an athletic subcompact SUV that features head-turning styling, potent powerplant choices, and an economical price. The CX-3 is powered by a fuel-efficient 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 148 hp and 146 lb-ft of torque.
2021 Mazda CX-5
The 2021 Mazda CX-5 is a compact SUV that combines attractive styling with the versatility of an SUV. With seating for five, most drivers will find the 2021 CX-5 to be the ideal size. There’s ample space for passengers in the second row, and the CX-5 gets excellent fuel economy for a compact crossover. The CX-5’s 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine upgrade puts out 250 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque.
2021 Mazda CX-9
The 2021 Mazda CX-9 is a midsize three-row SUV that seats seven, making it perfect for large families. The CX-9’s low starting MSRP makes it a great value. It’s powered by a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates 250 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. Towing capacity maxes out at 3,500 pounds. Buyers can choose the optional captain’s chairs that provide second-row passengers with even more comfort.
Which Mazda is the best for 2021?
As we mentioned earlier, it may be challenging to choose the best model because the vehicle that’s best for one buyer may not be the best for another. The 2021 Mazda CX-5 and CX-30 are worthy contenders for the title of best Mazda SUV of 2021. Compact and subcompact Mazda SUVs both offer the exceptional driving experience the automaker is known for. Mazda’s CX-30 and CX-3 subcompact SUVs cost less than the midsize CX-5. They handle better and provide better fuel efficiency. We’d pick the CX-30 for its extra room and its powerful available turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
