2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2018 Mazda3

The new 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is set to release in the early summer of 2018. With its press kit containing specs and features now out, it's worth examining how the upcoming 2019 Volkswagen Jetta holds up against the competition. For that fight, we've chosen the popular and reputable 2018 Mazda3 model as the 2019 Jetta's competitor.

If we're being honest, the 2018 Mazda3 had many advantages over the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta model. However, much has changed since then. The Volkswagen Jetta has undergone a complete redesign for its 2019 model. That isn't exclusive to its exterior look and style, but also performance, technology, and many more features. Therefore, who will the winner be this time? It's the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs the 2018 Mazda3!
