The New Volkswagen Golf vs. The Chevrolet Cruze in Mohegan Lake

For New York drivers who are in the market for responsive handling in a brand new hatchback that also offers unique technology, comfort, and versatility for your friends and family, the all-new Volkswagen Golf is ready and waiting for your test drive in our Volkswagen inventory in Mohegan Lake, NY! If you've had your sights set on competitor hatchbacks like the Chevy Cruze, below is a quick rundown of how these two popular hatchback models compare and why Volkswagen comes out on top.

Power and Efficiency

Both hatchback models provide ample power with similar 1.4-Liter turbocharged engines, and when it comes to efficiency for your work commute between Wappinger Falls and White Plains, drivers have one extra mile of fuel-efficiency when choosing the VW Golf which earns 29 MPG city compared to the Chevy Cruze's 28 MPG City. The Volkswagen Golf also provides more torque with 184 lb-ft with the four-cylinder engine which offers more punch from the start compared to the Chevy Cruze's 177 lb-ft of torque which is handy when climbing hills.

Interior Space

When it comes to cargo versatility, the Volkswagen Golf offers just a little bit more space with 22.8-cubic feet compared to the Chevy Cruze model's 22.7-cubic feet of cargo space. Plus, if you're looking for a compact hatchback vehicle that offers more headroom, the Volkswagen is your best bet with rear headroom resting at 38.1-inches in comparison to the 37.8-inches of rear headroom for the Cruze. The Volkswagen Golf also provides an abundance of cargo accessories like the cargo organizer, Cargotech® blocks, and the MuddyBuddy® Trunk Liner.


Technology and Safety

For White Plains commuters who are searching for practicality and innovative safety for their daily drive, the Volkswagen Golf received a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Both hatchback vehicles offer standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but if you're on a long-distance highway commute out of Yorktown Heights, the Chevy Cruze does not offer the available Adaptive Cruise Control driver assist feature as the VW Golf does. A convenient tech feature that keeps drivers at a safe speed and distance from others on the highway.

Volkswagen Warranty vs. Chevrolet Warranty

New York drivers who are seeking a long-lasting warranty and a reliable vehicle will find their match when choosing Volkswagen. Drivers will only receive coverage for the first three years or 36,000-miles whereas Volkswagen buyers take a home a six-year/72,000-mile warranty which is phenomenal for the driving and weather conditions we face here in the northeast.
