2015 BMW 435 vs. 2014 Volkswagen Eos Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 435 than the Volkswagen Eos. The BMW 435 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Eos.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 435 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). The BMW 435 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volkswagen Eos, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 435 will cost more in transportation costs than the Volkswagen Eos.

Dimensions
The BMW 435 is a little wider than the Volkswagen Eos, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW 435, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen Eos.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 435 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volkswagen Eos.

Handling
The BMW 435 has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Eos, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 435 has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen Eos. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 435 and the Volkswagen Eos. The BMW 435 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Eos.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 435 than that of the Volkswagen Eos.
