Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda CX-30 than in the Nissan Rogue Sport. The Nissan Rogue Sport will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-30.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mazda CX-30 as you will with the Nissan Rogue Sport, 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). Whether you pick the Mazda CX-30 or the Nissan Rogue Sport, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Mazda CX-30 and the Nissan Rogue Sport have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mazda CX-30 is much slimmer than the Nissan Rogue Sport, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Mazda CX-30 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan Rogue Sport.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Mazda CX-30 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Rogue Sport.

Handling
The Mazda CX-30 has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Rogue Sport, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mazda CX-30 has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Rogue Sport.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mazda CX-30 and the Nissan Rogue Sport. The Mazda CX-30 has less cargo space than the Nissan Rogue Sport, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Mazda CX-30 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Rogue Sport.
