Mazda3 vs All Contenders

I'm looking for a new car under $20k but can go up to $25k if necessary. The 2014/2015 Mazda3s seem to return incredible value, combining utility, sportiness, functionality, efficiency, safety, etc. I've looked around a bit and the VW Golf seems to come closest. Really, I just wanted to put it out there to see if anyone has other ideas/suggestions to think about. I'm not opposed to a used car with under 30-40k miles on it. Performance, MPG, and reliability are high on my list. Please share any thoughts you have!

    for bang for the buck and features, an Elantra GT hatch is a nice package.

    Thank you both for the feedback. I hadn't looked into the Elantra GT yet. It seems like a decent alternative, although I'm likely to spend a little more and get one of the others. Any and all opinions are welcome if others want to chime in.

    If you are a parent of young children (at least one under 12 years old) who owns a Mazda3 (2014, 2015 or 2016,) a reporter would like for you to fill out a survey, due by December 22, 2015, for use in a print publication. Click here for the survey
