2022 Buick Encore vs. 2021 Mazda CX-30

Buick Encore vs. Mazda CX-30 Comparison
 

The 2021 Mazda CX-30 has only been around for a little while, but it’s already making an impression on Green Cove Springs-area drivers. Still, you have every reason to wonder if it can really keep up with a luxury alternative like the 2022 Buick Encore. Make no mistake: the Encore only costs a little bit more than the CX-30, but it gives you a whole lot more to love! Our Buick Encore vs. Mazda CX-30 matchup has all the details you need.

Luxury Features: Encore vs. CX-30

If you’re looking for a small SUV that will provide more comfort for you and your passengers, you’ll love the new Buick Encore. The Encore starts at $24,600 MSRP, while the CX-30 starts at $22,050 MSRP. Despite this small difference, only the Encore offers each of the following in its baseline trim:

  • Privacy Glass
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Heated mirrors
  • Illuminated vanity mirrors
  • Wi-Fi™ Hotspot compatibility
  • Power driver’s seat with lumbar support
  • And More!

Performance and Ride Quality: Encore vs. CX-30

Both the CX-30 and the Encore have been praised for offering a crisp and comfortable ride, but there are three major reasons that discerning drivers prefer the Buick:

  • The Encore comes standard with 18-inch wheels, while the CX-30 includes 16-inch wheels. Many drivers prefer to be higher up when they’re cruising the roads of Jacksonville and Crescent Beach, since this improves visibility.
  • The brakes on the Encore are a little bit bigger—by 0.2 inches in both the front and the rear—and this is one area where every decimal point counts. 
  • The Encore SUV’s suspension system includes standard coil springs for both the front and the rear, and that means you can enjoy a smoother ride on every journey.

If you’re not quite sure if the latest model is right for you, you should know that all of these benefits are just as applicable if you’re comparing the 2021 Buick Encore vs. Mazda CX-30. 

Notably, the 2022 Buick Encore includes a new turbocharged engine with significantly more horsepower and torque than yesteryear’s model. Whether you look to power or fuel economy, the two models are now running neck-and-neck. So, why wouldn’t you choose the model that offers a higher ride height, larger brakes, and better suspension?
