2024 Dodge Hornet vs Mazda CX-30 in Devon, AB

The all-new 2024 Dodge Hornet is set to dethrone the Mazda CX-30 as the most fun-to-drive vehicle in the sub-compact crossover SUV segment. Continue reading below as our team of Dodge enthusiasts here at Devon Chrysler compare the performance, technology & pricing of these two driver-oriented vehicles.


When it comes to powertrain options, the Dodge Hornet makes it easy with its single high-output 2.0-litre turbocharged engine that generates more horsepower than all of the CX-30’s available engines. On the other hand, the CX-30 is available with three different four-cylinder engines, depending on the trim level. To get a CX-30 that’s comparable to the Hornet’s performance, you’d have to opt for the most expensive GT model and pay an extra $2,400* to get the turbocharged engine.
