All crossover SUVs share a few common elements like easy handling and an adaptable interior. However, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 has more of both of those in comparison to the 2019 Toyota CH-R. While both crossover SUVs have a maximum seating capacity of five passengers, the Mazda vehicle is going to be able to do more with its available space. When the rear seats are folded down, owners of the 2019 Mazda CX-3 will be able to use up to 44.5 cubic feet of cargo volume. The same procedure in the Toyota CH-R will open up a maximum of just 36.4 cubic feet. On the subject of handling, Mazda has done the work to ensure the 2019 version of its compact crossover SUV has everything available a driver may need. The 2019 Mazda CX-3 is one of the only models in its class that offers optional all-wheel drive — something not available on any trim of the Toyota C-HR.
On paper, it would seem as though the 2019 Mazda CX-3 and 2019 Toyota C-HR would be equal in terms of performance specifications. However, the 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine used by the Mazda crossover SUV is able to make up to 148 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. The similar power plant used by Toyota in the 2019 CH-R comes up short on both metrics. Additionally, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 is able to record better fuel economy scores than its Toyota rival. Versions of the Mazda model with front-wheel-drive can achieve up to 29 miles per gallon in the city and 34 miles per gallon on the highway.
