Overall:

This is my 2nd VW GTI. The car is fun to drive. Inexpensive to maintain. My 03 has 230k. If your looking for a fun car that drives smooth and is reliable. This is a great option. The 2016 I recently purchased has a similar feel. Great on gas, tight steering, great tech packages, and the back up camera is a nice bonus. The car come very nice equipped even standard.

Power Ranked 2016 Subaru WRX better.
"The WRX accelerates much stronger and the AWD puts the power down the power fair better then the GTIs FDW can. The WRX will our run the GTI to 60mph by at least .5 secs to 1sec."
Looks/Style Ranked 2016 Subaru WRX better.
"The WRX is fresh and aggressive looking. The GTI is old and stale car looks like all other GTI, Golfs and Rabbits for the last 10 years...yawn."
Back Seats Ranked 2016 Subaru WRX better.
"The over all experience is better."
2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0T S 4-Door FWD Review
Love my GTI, it is the second one that I have owned and they just keep getting better. This thing is fun to drive, comfortable, gets good gas mileage and has a lot of cargo space when you fold down the back seats. It has been reliable and so far affordable and easy maintenance.

Looks/Style Ranked 2016 Mazda MAZDA3 i Sport Hatchback worse.
"The GTI has a more sports car look at feel. The Mazda 3 is sporty, but not a sports car in my opinion."
Back Seats Ranked 2016 Mazda MAZDA3 i Sport Hatchback better.
"I think the back seats in the Mazda were slightly more comfortable than the GTI, but the GTI has more cargo space so I think it is that tradeoff."
