Been going back and forth between CX 30 and Mazda 3 hatch ever since I heard about the 30. Just recently drove the 30 and I am leaning strongly that way.
Currently own a 2017 CX 5 GT that has my wife as a primary driver. I like something a bit smaller and more athletic I always loved the little cx 3 but could not get over the nvh and lack of power. Wound up buying a Golf that was better in every way but looks. Yeah I know, look out for problems. I certainly want to ditch it before the warranty runs out. So here I am.

CX-3 was an option for me but I cant get over how much its design has aged especially compared to the CX-30.

Thanks for asking man. Went out and drove both today. Love em both, but have decided not that the 3 was best, just best for me. I already have a cx5 for practical reasons, so I can go sporty with the3 hatch. For a do everything Swiss Army knife of a car, I would go with the 30. The 30 gives up little in fun to drive. It was so close for me that if the 30 had that brilliant red/black interior option I would have gone with it. Still have not closed the deal yet, just reached the decision.

I meant to mention, also drove a Cooper s and a turbo Kona today. That did the last bit of convincing I needed to go Mazda.
The mini is essentially a slightly high snug sports car and great fun but the Mazda is quieter and more refined if a bit slower. It rode much better than I expected from the reviews. Deal killers for Mini are price and reliability. The Kona has a nice strong turbo motor and good packaging along with decent handling, but noise levels and interior quality are woeful compared to the Mazdas.

Right Steve, I've driven both and you are making a huge leap forward. Congrats. What's the trim , color and purchase price?

That's a very fair assessment, appreciate the feedback. Is it fair to say that if you didn't have the CX-5 already you'd go for the CX-30?
