2016 Volkswagen Golf vs. 2016 Mazda 3

Hatchbacks are such versatile vehicles when you think about it. They are fit for just about any environment. If you live in an urban area, they can easily navigate the streets and squeeze into the tightest parking spaces. They have a convenient rear hatch which lets you easily load up with groceries or luggage. If you live out in the country, they are nimble enough to navigate the roads with ease. Whether you just need it for yourself or your family, hatchbacks can make it all work. There are a number of different hatchback options available, so which one is right for you? Let’s take a look at the 2016 Volkswagen Golf vs. the 2016 Mazda 3.

One of the first things you will probably want to look at when shopping for a hatchback is the cargo capacity. You want a car that can fit your full life, no matter what it contains. The 2016 Volkswagen Golf opens up to a maximum of 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space when the rear seats are folded down. The 2016 Mazda 3 falls short of that, opening up to 47.1 cubic feet of space. If you are not flying solo and have a family to take care of, having more space will be beneficial when it is time for loading up bags of groceries. And if you are just looking for a car for yourself, this means plenty of room for you to carry your sporting goods, camping gear, or just about anything else you can imagine.
