While hot hatches are prevalent in Europe, here in the United States we get relatively few. Thankfully, they are two of the best. While the 2010 Volkswagen GTI is the refined, rounded entry, the 2010 Mazdaspeed3 has the clear power advantage. How much, though? We know what the specs say, but to see how much horsepower and torque they put to the wheels, we brought both to a dyno.
See what these two cars do in an entirely different sort of comparison in Burnout Super Test: 2010 Mazdaspeed3 vs. 2010 Volkswagen GTI.
