Interesting comparison here of the VW Golf TDI and the Mazda3 Diesel.
Inside Well screwed together with a quality feel, if a little austere in base model trim.
Engine Pulls strongly from a standing start but quick to run out of puff. Little discernible lag in manual form. Frugal.
How it drives Crisp steering feel. Solid, confidence-inspiring stance. Optional dual-clutch auto can be indecisive, manual is the best choice.
