2020 Mazda CX-30 vs 2021 Kia Seltos

A red 2020 Mazda CX-30 compared to a green 2021 Kia Seltos.

Much of the early buzz in 2020 has been taken up by two all-new models released to the public. One said model is the all-new 2020 Mazda CX-30, which slots between the Mazda CX-3 and CX-5 models in size. It added the best from both worlds, as it provides space and numerous features and still delivers a sporty, quality ride of a smaller crossover.

As a subcompact crossover, the 2020 Mazda CX-30 also debuted at a similar time as the 2021 Kia Seltos. But what model is ideal for those Scranton, PA roads and traffic areas? Kelly Mazda compared both to each other. Find the overview below.

2020 Mazda CX-30


2021 Kia Seltos

2.5L 4-Cylinder 6A Base Engine Option 2.0L 4-Cylinder CVT
186 Horsepower 146
186 Torque (in ft-lbs) 132
28 Combined MPG Estimated Fuel Economy 31 Combined MPG
Standard Adaptive Cruise Control Available
Available All-Wheel Drive Option Available

When looking at the engine specifications above, the base engine inside the 2020 Mazda CX-30 offers a strong package of specs from the get-go. With standard adaptive cruise control and available i-ACTIV® AWD, the model is a great option for both busy Scranton roads and the rougher country roads in the winter. The 2021 Kia Seltos does offer a 1.6L 4-cylinder Turbo engine, but it still doesn’t quite match up to the CX-30 model’s 186 horsepower or 28 Combined estimated MPG. Plus, you’d have to spend at least an additional $1,500 more than the base trim of the CX-30 to receive it.
