You can get A LOT of features in a $25k Mazda 3. A GTI of the same price doesn't have many of those features. Worse still, many of them aren't available in the USA at any cost. However, the features you get are implemented much better, down to the see full Volkswagen Golf / GTI review

2012 2dr Hatch 170-horsepower 2.5L I5
5-speed manual FWD
The base Golf is more about quality and simplicity than tech, and that's how I like it. For about 18K, you get a CD player, an auxiliary input, power windows, heated power mirrors, cruise control, a trip computer, a manual transmission and three doors - everything else, including the DSG, costs more (unlike most U.S. automakers, VW's manuals are really on dealer lots and not theoretical constructs meant to advertise lower base prices; for me, that's a good thing, but few Americans agree). For those besotted with Bluetooth and navigation, this will not be enough, and plenty of competitors offer more bells and whistles at this price point. But if you're looking for an excellent experience without distractions, you certainly have found your car. see full Volkswagen Golf / GTI review

6-speed manual AWD
the last aspect (also can be avoided) would be to skip the sunroof on this model; it's just too small for the money. We might add an ASC (American Sunroof Corp) later as we've done that in the past with two other cars we've owned but it would have been nice if they offered the one that comes on the Scirocco (not sold in the U.S.) but skipping it saves you a few bucks. With our being a '12 ours has auto climate control (works quite well and very felxible) but doesn't have the auto headlights which could matter to a few buyers but not us. see full Volkswagen Golf / GTI review

I wish I had purchased the tech package with the xenon headlights and LED DLR's. The low beam headlights of the TDI are clearly weak compared to the Golf R. see full Volkswagen Golf / GTI review
