2018 VW Atlas Base SUV

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

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 NY, East Hampton NY, and all over Long Island, and with good reason:

  • The VW Model Lineup: Looking for a reliable sedan like the Jetta? How about an iconic compact ride like the Beetle? Or do you need more cargo space that our SUVs like the Tiguan or Atlas have to offer? Whatever style you're after, we've got you covered. 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 Passat sedan, or the envy-inspiring Touareg premium SUV, you can smile knowing your wallet is way fuller than the Hyundai Genesis or Audi Q7 owners. 
  • Space and Versatility: The new full-size Atlas is here, coming with space for eight passengers and available all-wheel drive, making it one of the most spacious and versatile SUVs on the market.
  • 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 Features: Your smartphone and VW are meant to be together. 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. There are also available features such as a Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, SiriusXM satellite radio, a hands-free power liftgate, premium Fender audio systems, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and remote start.
  • Agility and Performance: We have the sporty new Golf lineup including the GolfGTI and Golf Alltrack to take on models like the Ford Focus, Toyota Prius, or Subaru Impreza.
  • Awards, Awards, Awards: Volkswagen's is one of the most awarded auto brands on the road. Recently, the Atlas won both the 2017 Top Safety Pick and "Best Three-Row SUV of 2017" from Cars.com. Additionally, the Golf family of models was listed as one Car and Drive Magazine's "10Best" for 2018, and the Tiguan picked up Cars.com's "Best Compact SUV of 2017."

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.
