Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Trax offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mazda CX-30, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Trax offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-30, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Trax as you will with the Mazda CX-30, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Chevrolet Trax is a better financial choice over the Mazda CX-30, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Trax and the Mazda CX-30 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Trax is a little narrower than the Mazda CX-30, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Chevrolet Trax is slightly shorter than the Mazda CX-30, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Trax has much lower torque than the Mazda CX-30, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Chevrolet Trax has the same turning radius as the Mazda CX-30, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Trax has a little less horsepower than the Mazda CX-30.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Trax and the Mazda CX-30. The Chevrolet Trax has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mazda CX-30.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Trax comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-30.
