If there’s anything Mazda is known for, it’s making incredibly drivable vehicles. The CX-30 lives up to this reputation. Its handling is almost as tight and responsive as the Mazda3, which is remarkable considering its higher stature. Compared to the rest of the auto industry, it wins hands-down. Compared to the Nissan Rogue Sport, it’s not even a competition.
Not only does the Mazda CX-30 have better handling than the Rogue Sport, but it's also more powerful. It has 40+ more horsepower than the Rogue Sport. The CX-30 2.5L SKYACTIV-G four-cylinder engine is paired with a buttery smooth 6-speed automatic. The Rogue Sport, with its sluggish CVT, just can’t compare. If drive feel matters to you, the CX-30 is the clear winner.
Excellent Ride Quality
The CX-30 is quiet in the cabin. You can hear a pleasantly muted purr from the engine, but road and wind noise are kept to a minimum. While the Rogue Sport does minimize wind and road noise well, the engine sounds rough and asthmatic, which gets grating quickly in stop-and-go traffic or when calling for power on the highway.
