Brand History

The Volkswagen automotive company was established in 1937 in Germany. The brand is known for the Volkswagen Beetle, the “punch buggy” that many families have referred to during the I Spy car game.

Over the years, the brand has evolved and grown from the single model of the People’s Car to one of the world’s largest automakers. The brand is known for their advanced German engineering, high-class styling, and advanced technology.

Nissan Motor Company is a multinational automobile manufacturer based in Japan that was founded in 1933. The company is the leading Japanese brand in Mexico, Russia, and China and is the sixth largest automaker in the world.

While the brand is popular in many other countries, it has been gaining popularity in the United States thanks to the attention to detail, high-performance engines, and affordable pricing.

Vehicle Offerings

In terms of vehicle offerings, both brands have quite a few. In terms of popularity, Nissan’s top models are the Altima, Pathfinder, and Frontier. While these vehicles are popular, they each have downfalls.

The Altima, though it has received several upgrades in recent years, still lacks the high-end look that its price tag demands. The Pathfinder’s continuously variable transmission is still unrefined compared to others in the class. And the Frontier needs an overhaul with its unfortunate fuel economy and disappointing towing and hauling capabilities.

On the other hand, the Volkswagen Jetta, VW Passat, VW Golf GTI, and VW Golf SportWagen are consistently listed as favorites from our customers and customers across the country. The VW Beetle sports excellent engine options with plenty of highway passing power. The VW Golf offers high-quality interior materials and technology at a price you can afford.

The VW Golf GTI offers incredible handling, especially compared to its competition. And the latest VW Golf SportWagen sports brand new features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto that make it incredibly competitive.
