Ok, I know this isn't a direct comparison, but I felt like sharing what I posted in the Golf R forum;



Finally! Details released on the Mazda CX3!! A less sporty, but more practical and HEAVIER LOADED OPTIONS to the R (and far cheaper)


Before I learned about the 2015 Golf R and pre-order my eyes were fixed on the new Mazda CX3.
Don't get me wrong, I love my R and for me, this is clearly the better choice. The CX3 was always intended to be my wife's car for its practicality.

Still, I couldn't help but notice....
1) For $28,575.62 USD you get a WHOLE LOT MORE (a bit less power)

What they have the same in;
-Advanced AWD system [https://www.mazda.co.nz/innovation/d...l-wheel-drive]
-LED daytime lights
-Auto on/off lights
-Leather
-Climate control
-Rain sensing wipers
-Sport mode (not nearly as advanced as premium Golf R's, but there is an button to change the powertrain to be more sporty)

Additional options included with CX-3 but not R;
-LED fog lamps
-LED head lamps
-Power sliding and tilt glass sunroof
-LED tail lamps
-Active Driving Display (HUD) [Found in newer top luxury cars]
-Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring (ABSM)
-Advanced keyless entry (WITH REMOTE START)
-High beam control (HBC) [automatically switches between high/low beam when there's other cars]
-Lane Departure Warning (LDW) [makes a noise when your slowly veering out of your lane... not as good as other luxury "assist" options which actually keep you in the lane, but its something]
-Rear cross traffic alert (RCTA) [this is awesome, because the back-up camera doesn't catch cars you cant see coming up behind you, these better sensors warn you]
-More and more advanced parking sensors
-7" display
-Hill launch assist
-Smart city brake support [car brakes for you if someone stops suddenly or a pedestrian jumps in front of you]
-2,500 lbs towing capacity
-35.2 mpg average (that's city and highway, and that's w/ AWD) [I have 1,000 miles driving softly in comfort mode and I'm at 19.6 ave MPG in the R]
-Adjustable trunk levels
-Full size spare

plus there is a "Kuroi Sports Pack which really enhances the styling to be sporty yet classy; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhk4eB6xiPc

Again, and I stress this... not the sports car the Golf R is.... but I find it interesting they give SOOO many features, for SOOO much less $$$

You are brave esp. if you shared it on the vortex. LOL.

Seriously where did you get that $28k+ price from?

I'm just not much a fan of VW these days. There cars are repertory boring though the golf is one of the better ones. I'm not after pure power, it's about the whole package at an affordable price for me so I'm happy with the cx3.
