The HR-V and CX-30 Compete in MPG

Go the distance on less gas than ever-that's the central appeal of a subcompact SUV. The 2021 HR-V and CX-30 absolutely sip fuel with their efficient engines and transmissions.

The Honda HR-V runs on a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that mates with a continuously variable transmission, or CVT. When equipped with 2-wheel drive (2WD), the HR-V sees an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG on all trim levels.1 That's better gas mileage than you'll see in the CX-30.

Indeed, the Mazda CX-30 with front-wheel drive (FWD) gets just an EPA-estimated 25 city/33 highway MPG. Expect far fewer fuel stops when the Honda powers your every commute and road trip! 

More Cargo Space in the Honda HR-V

Like hatchbacks, small SUVs are beloved the world over for their generous cargo space. So, does the Honda HR-V or Mazda CX-30 have more cargo space available? Short answer: the Honda.

With the second-row seats up, the Mazda CX-30 has 20.2 cubic feet of cargo space. While you'll find that plenty useful, the Honda HR-V goes even further with 24.3 cubic feet of cargo volume. It's ideal when you need to pack up your picnic or beach gear-or pick up some groceries.  

Need to pack more gear? Simply fold the rear seats to reveal more space. With a second-row Magic Seat® in the Honda CR-V, the seatbacks fold almost completely flat. Unlike in the Mazda CX-30, the seat cushions also fold up to make room for tall cargo loaded upright.
