Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler than in the Mazda CX-30. The Jeep Wrangler will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-30.

Convenience
The Jeep Wrangler requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Mazda CX-30, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The Jeep Wrangler is somewhat more expensive than the Mazda CX-30. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler is much higher than that for the Mazda CX-30.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Wrangler is much wider than the Mazda CX-30, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Jeep Wrangler is slightly shorter than the Mazda CX-30, which may make it easier to park.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Wrangler greatly out-muscles the Mazda CX-30.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jeep Wrangler does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Mazda CX-30.

Utility
The Jeep Wrangler has less seating than the Mazda CX-30, making the Mazda CX-30 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Wrangler has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mazda CX-30.

Warranty
The Jeep Wrangler comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-30.
