2019 Mazda3 Hatchback vs 2019 Volkswagen Golf

2019 Mazda3 Hatchback vs 2019 Volkswagen Golf

Some publications have already compared the upcoming 2019 Mazda3 sedan against the similarly fully-redesigned 2019 Volkswagen Jetta. Not wanting to tread well-worn ground, we wanted instead to pit a different Volkswagen model against the hatchback variant of the all-new 2019 Mazda3. We speak not of the outgoing Beetle, but of the similar iconic Volkswagen Golf hatchback.

Against the 2019 Mazda3 sedan, the 2019 Volkswagen Golf would appear to be an odd matchup. However, with plenty of additional upgrades coming with the build of the 2019 Mazda3 hatchback, there’s plenty more to compare and contrast. It’s the 2019 Mazda3 Hatchback vs the 2019 Volkswagen Golf!
