2015 Audi A3 vs. 2014 Volkswagen Eos Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi A3 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volkswagen Eos with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Volkswagen Eos will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A3.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A3 as you will with the Volkswagen Eos, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A3 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Eos. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A3 and the Volkswagen Eos have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
When looking at overall length, the Audi A3 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Eos.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A3 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Eos.

Performance
The Audi A3 has less horsepower than the Volkswagen Eos, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A3 and the Volkswagen Eos.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi A3 than that of the Volkswagen Eos.
