2016 Ford Mustang vs. 2015 Volkswagen Eos Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Eos than the Ford Mustang, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Eos, the Ford Mustang may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

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

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 Ford Mustang 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 Ford Mustang and the Volkswagen Eos have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Ford Mustang is much wider than the Volkswagen Eos, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Mustang, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volkswagen Eos.

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

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

When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Mustang 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.

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

The Ford Mustang comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Eos.
