      Outback has way more room to haul your shit around. Way more spacious cabin. Better visibility. If you're a girl, you'll get way more pussy. And, of course, vastly superior AWD.

      On the flip side, it's ugly as frick and drives like a slow boat. CX-50 looks nice and drives pretty good. I'd take the CX-50 if I had to pick one of the two, but Outback has a lot of advantages.

          I wish the CX-30/50 had a solid axle that would be sick. But that anon is kind of moronic, I think he saw "torsion beam" and got confused. They have trailing arms torsion beam rear vs multilink on the CX-5

      As a Mazda fan, I test drove one. It's pretty nice, but I wouldn't buy it at MSRP. Just a CX-5 with a less soccer-mom look, but also more expensive. I just think the 30 and the 5 are better value, and I would recommend them over this to just about anyone.

      The backseat is cramped on the 30, but you did save some money which is nice.

      It's funny how people think spending $50k on a 400hp truck they won't "use" is stupid but they'll go ahead and spend $50k on a homosexual hatchback with AT's like this.

      I think the CX-50 is too pricey for what you get, but it's a *lot* cheaper than a new 400hp trugg is going to be. It's not a hatchback, it's more like a wagon.

      What kind of price range were the one you're looking at? I've been cross shopping a CX-30 & CX-50 and came to similar conclusions. The CX-30 is just a tiny bit too small, and the CX-5 is too tall & egg shaped. CX-50 is almost the perfect middle ground, but it's just pricer than the alternatives.
      I don't think it's "bad value" necessarily, but definitely not as good value as the adjacent models. I'm finding base model non-turbos around $30k but am worried it would be a bit too slow.

      Subarus are all out cause they're dog turd slow, all have auto start/stop and the interiors feel fisher price tier

        What's odd about Mazdas is they look different when you actually see them on the road. The CX30 is so fricking cute and smol, it looks pretty much like a lifted hatchbacks. The CX50 they tried to make more "SUV" looking but this is purely size and cosmetic tweaks. Personally I prefer the 30, but I pretty much just want a car I can put bigger wheels on. I want the benefits of a sedan's small size without the cons of a sedan (riding too low and having bad cargo space). I'm gonna get it if I can't work out importing an even more adorable Jimny.

          I did like the Cx-30, and it's definitely faster in all trims + slightly better fuel economy. If it was a "just commuting" car I would consider it, but the extra space of the 50 will be really nice for hauling our dogs and camping shit around. A souped up turbo CX-30 with some rally tires would be pretty fun.

          In Leafistan, they start around 39k. Which is like 7k more than the cx5 and 11k more than the cx30. The cx5's are all made in Japan too, so I think it's hard to justify getting the 50 over the other models at that price. If you get the turbo, it can tow 3500lbs. But if you're going to be towing that much, it's probably better to just get a Ranger or a used F150 or something anyway.

          Part of the problem is the CX-50 is just a newer product, different production line, etc. I will admit I am a huge sucker for "made in USA (or Canada)" and the CX-50's are made in Alabama (with international parts of course). The pricing isn't quite as bad here, about $1k more than the CX-5 but $5k more than the CX-30. I wouldn't be towing much (maybe 1 or twice a year at most) but the turbo trim is really nice for overtaking on the highway. Helps a lot if you get stuck behind someone slow on twisty roads with limited passing opportunities.

    If they make a cx70 off road edition, I'll cream myself. Mazda ironically has the best potential to make a better land rover right now and it'd be possibly the greatest troll move of all time. The current defender is unibody irs + ifs and has a turbo 4 standard unless you spend $60k. A cx70 is around 41k, and all they need to do is raise the ground clearance and add skidplates and they're already made a better car.

      You can do this aftermarket, I don't like the skid plates any manufacturer puts on stock anyway. They cut a lot of material to save weight so it's thin and barely gives any coverage. Unfortunately Mazdas don't have a huge aftermarket. You can get spacer lifts or longer suspension easy but a skid plate might require a custom job. Still not hard, it's about the easiest thing you can have custom made.

      I guess it depends on what you mean by offroading. I wouldn't take a stock Outback 'offroading-offroading', but it's good at trails, fire roads, dirt roads, shit like that. The AWD is a lot better than the competition, hands down. The trade off is they're ugly, slow, and gay. CRV and CX50 definitely drive nicer and look a lot cooler. I would rather by in the Outback in a snowstorm, thoughbiet.

      >Is the Subaru outback that much better
      It's that much worse lmao, I'd say the worst you've listed. The ONLY thing Subaru has going for it is their AWD system has the edge since it's full-time AWD. That costs gas, but if you're always driving in snow and up steep dirt hills it'll be useful. The other AWD systems aren't bad, and they're more efficient but they don't have that edge when pushed to the extreme edge of what AWD is capable of.

      To mitigate the fuel consumption of their AWD systems, Subaru underpowers their vehicles and gives them a CVT in attempt to save more fuel. The CVT is trash, annoying to drive and doesn't have the longevity of a normal transmission. They also have boxer engines which aren't inherently reliable, and that's another reason why they underpower their vehicles so they don't blow out the head gaskets. First thing you'll want to do if you end up stuck with a nu slowbaru is throw a turbo in it to get a bit more power, but you'll void the warranty and be at risk of blowing out the engine. Simply put I don't like the boxer engine, CVT, underpowered trio. It's not worth the edge their AWD system gives, and the reason no other manufacturers use that is because of the fuel consumption. Be real, you probably don't need it, or maybe you do.

          Well the marketing is easy to explain; its just marketing they'll say whatever sounds popular with the kids (which is "outdoorsy shit to cope with the fact I only take it to the grocery store and justify the AWD"). The outback isn't a real "offroader" either for that matter. When your boomer dad hear's "off road" he's like oh yeah, like going down the rock quarry or up a mountain, a willy's would be perfect. When a zoomer/millenial hear's "off road" they usually mean there's a gravel road they occasionally have to drive down.

          We want decent fuel economy and road performance out of something capable on paths, but can't get Jimnys. I wouldn't call a crossover an off-roader, I'd call it an on-path vehicle. It can handle a pothole, angled driveway, lesser paved dirt roads, and some unmaintained vehicle paths. Personally I've never had a problem going where I need to go. Had a Rav4 and only got stuck in loose sand once and hit a rock due to the massive frog gut front overhang that thing has. Just understand that it's a car slightly modified for decently flat dirt roads, but most people want their vehicle to drive like a car and only really need a car. Cuckovers are fine, but it ain't no Landrover or Jimny.

          Also snow is a thing in some places, your 2wd dragging on the ground car isn't going to do well.

            The first truck I bought was a GMT800 with coil springs in the rear and I was astonished how similar to a car it drives and steers. Modern trucks and truck-based SUVs are even more car-like, this point is moot.

            I've used to live in a very snowy country. Tires (including the ability to deflate them) matter way more than the ground clearance.

            Because an off road trim cx70 would be able to do well since it already has longitudinal awd and could be coupled with selectable 4wd and skid plates + greater ride height to be a competent off road platform akin to a land rover while remaining significantly cheaper. Longitudinal layout literally changes everything and for some reason you don't think so even though your whole point is that the cx50 is a cheap marketing scheme to pass a mom car as a 4x4

            Yeah, I remember that one. You guys are ready to cream yourselves over half an inch increase of the ground clerance and plastic skidplates. My point is that the car has more fundamental problems to take care of, that's the general direction the crossovers are going and this direction has very little to do with offroading or utility.
            >No it literally is not you brain damaged mongoloid.
            Read the text in the post please, don't need to be upset. If you're still unable to, I can repeat and word it differently this time: your real™ longitudinal crossover suffers from the same problems many other crossovers have, transverse or not. It doesn't matter how you place the engine if you can't deflate your tires or are going to break your plastic bumper painted in three different glossy colors on the first stone that's six inches high instead of five.

            Off roader my ass. My hybrid cuckover has better angles and I bet bigger tires too. And it can fit 60% sidewalls. And has more cylinders.

            Do you know what "literally" means?

            I told you to read the text in that post, didn't I? Is that so hard?

            Ignoring your obvious moronation, what "problems" does the CX-90 platform have? I am not talking about the current CX-90 which is clearly road going, rather the inherent characteristics of the platform that make it unworthy of a theoretical off-road trim?
            A bumper is extremely easy to change as a trim option, as would be adding an air compressor. The Buick Rendezvous (Aztek) had a compressor option for fricks sake

            You remind me of EV shills. They can't read, they have no idea what they are talking about, but they push some model or idea nevertheless and there's always a bit about how things will change in the near future. Adding an air compressor kek

            Pray tell what is even being shilled here. There is no off-road trim for sale the entire discussion is theoretical. The platform being discussed in that conversation is not the one pictured in the OP in the first place.

    was loaned one for a day while my CX-30 was at the dealer for warranty repair (dead battery, had to overnight a new one). was excited to drive something nicer for a day for free and was disappointed.
    I was shocked at how flimsy the interior felt. it's as if mazda made a car slightly cheaper than a cx-30, made it bigger, and threw in a slightly larger screen and ventilated seats to gaslight you into thinking it was a nicer car.

          How do you like the NA 2.5? What specifically didnt you like about the CX-50 interior?
          I've been cross shopping both and driven Base and Turbo models for all, though to be honest I could not tell much of difference interior wise (apart from the CX-50 being wider).

    It looks better in pictures. Saw one in person today and it was hideous, the back of it looks like a 400lb Bonquisha

    power’s good with the turbo
    CVT’s fine, no gear hunting cruising up mountain passes. Occasionally the solenoids go bad, but with fluid changes it lasts
    interior is greatly improved from previous generations
    great softroading cruiser

      Totally different market segment. The CX-50 is a "compact" SUV, the Grand Cherokee is a "midsize" and about 1,0000 lbs heavier.

      What's wrong with cylinder deactivation and Atkinson cycle anon? It's free efficiency.
