2010 Volkswagen GTI: How It's Different From the MS3

September 10, 2010


Getting into our 2010 Volkswagen GTI after having driven our Mazdaspeed 3 for nearly a week, I couldn't help but notice the following differences:

The GTI...

...has heavier doors.

...has a manlier horn.

...has smoother shifts.

...is quieter at 4,000+ rpm.

I wish I had driving comparisons or something like that for you but all I really got to do with the GTI last night was sit in traffic. But just for giggles here's the burnout shoot-out video again.
