2015 BMW Z4 vs. 2014 Volkswagen Eos Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW Z4 and the Volkswagen Eos in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Eos you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW Z4, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Z4 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 Z4 will cost more in transportation costs than the Volkswagen Eos.

Dimensions
The BMW Z4 is about the same width as the Volkswagen Eos. The BMW Z4 is slightly shorter than the Volkswagen Eos, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW Z4 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volkswagen Eos.

Handling
The BMW Z4 has a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Eos, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW Z4 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
The BMW Z4 has less seating than the Volkswagen Eos, making the Volkswagen Eos the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW Z4 has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Eos, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW Z4 than that of the Volkswagen Eos.
