2017 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2017 Mazda3

Considering the amount of time that you spend in your vehicle each day, week, month, or year, it’s more than likely a significant amount. We pride ourselves and deeply rely on having our own means of transportation, especially those who are commuters or apart of a family. And as much as we all would like to drive a luxury level vehicle, that's not usually a realistic option; nonetheless, it’s still important to enjoy what you drive while feeling safe and confident behind the wheel.

The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta and 2017 Mazda3 are two of the sportier options when it comes to compact sedans. Both deliver very precise handling and respectfully powerful engines for their size, class, and price range. If you’re someone who enjoys driving or is looking to liven up your daily drive, this is a comparison you won’t want to pass up.

In the world of sports, competition (whether it be against others or yourself) is what fuels the desire to improve and excel. In the world of sports cars, it’s to be faster, sleeker, and more powerful. As comfortable everyday drivers that function well as commuter cars or family vehicles, the Volkswagen Jetta and Mazda3 are continuously improving in order to remain two of the most affordable compact cars driven by performance.

Both sedans are front-wheel drive vehicles, but the Volkswagen Jetta has now expanded its engine offerings. Two smaller turbocharged 4-cylinders are now available, both of which carefully balance the desire for power and the need for efficiency. The VW Jetta can either be paired to a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. (Paddle shifters are available as an upper-level trim option.)

For 2017, the Volkswagen Jetta has done some rearranging and made some improvements. There now are four trim levels: S, SE, SEL, and the high-performance GLI. Feature packages continue to improve with each advanced trim grade, but even at the most basic level, the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta includes useful, and convenient features such as: keyless entry, heated side mirrors, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, 5-inch touchscreen interface, and more.
