2019 Mazda3 vs 2019 Volkswagen Jetta
The Mazda3-Jetta rivalry is nothing new, but 2019 promises to be the fiercest year yet for the pair. That’s because both of these compact competitors are all-new and chock full of new features. See how these two revamped sedans match up when they go head-to-head in this comparison of the 2019 Mazda3 vs 2019 Volkswagen Jetta.
Mounted front and center, the Mazda3 features a standard 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system across the entire lineup. The Jetta’s standard display spans only 6.5 inches, while an 8-inch display remains reserved for only the highest trims.
