Why Choose Volkswagen Over the Competition like Toyota, Honda, Ford, Mazda, & Hyundai?

With plenty of car brands to choose from in Riverhead, NY, it can sometimes feel a little overwhelming. You might know what you need in a vehicle, but how should you start your research? How long will it take? And will it be accurate? We understand.

That's why Riverhead Bay Volkswagen has taken some of the stress off of your shoulders, and made comparing Volkswagen vehicles to the competition even easier. Learn more about how our vehicles stand up to Mazda, Volvo, Ford, Honda, Toyota, Subaru, Audi, and Hyundai.

We think Volkswagen is the best option for drivers in Smithtown, Coram, Medford, and East Hampton, and with good reason:

  • The VW Model Lineup: Looking for a reliable sedan? How about an iconic compact like the Beetle? Or do you need more cargo space, so you're browsing SUVs like the Tiguan? Don't worry about it, we've got it all. Given the variety that comes in our model lineup, we definitely have a vehicle that has your name on it at just the right price.
  • Sedans With Some Kick: Not many car owners can say their sedans come with a turbocharged engine... standard. But Jetta and Passat owners can, with the Jetta's base 1.4L Turbocharged engine and the Passat's base 1.8L Turbocharged engine. Honda Accord and Mazda Mazda3 owners certainly can't say that.
  • Luxury Without the Price: Luxury shouldn't cost you an arm and a leg. As you drive in comfort and luxury in the sporty CC four-door coupe, or the envy-inspiring Touareg premium SUV, you can smile knowing your wallet is way fuller than the Hyundai Genesis or Audi Q7 owners.
  • Cutting Edge Safety: It's like having another set of eyes, ears, hands, and feet built into your vehicle. Safety features like Front Assist, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert, Lane Assist, Park Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Park Pilot can help you get to your destination safely.
  • Entertainment and Technology: Your smartphone and VW are meant to be. The VW Car-Net with App-Connect can give you navigation to your destination, will play your music and podcasts along the way, and can call for help should you need it.
  • Awards, Awards, Awards: Not only are the Jetta, Passat, Golf, Golf GTI, and GolfSport Wagen all 2016 IIHS Top Safety Picks, but the Golf, Golf GTI, and Golf R were named to the Car and Driver 10 Best for the tenth year in a row. That's something that can't be claimed by the Ford Focus, Toyota Prius, or Subaru Impreza. Clearly, we're not the only ones who think Volkswagen rises above the rest!

These are only a few of the many advantages to owning a VW throughout Long Island and Suffolk County. If you want turbocharged engines, the latest in safety and entertainment, comfortable rides, and sleek exteriors, there's only one clear choice: make your next vehicle a Volkswagen.
