2014 Lexus IS 350C vs. 2014 Volkswagen Eos Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Eos than the Lexus IS 350C, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lexus IS 350C 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 Lexus IS 350C 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 Lexus IS 350C is somewhat more expensive 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 Lexus IS 350C will cost more in transportation costs than the Volkswagen Eos.

Dimensions
The Lexus IS 350C is about the same width as the Volkswagen Eos. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus IS 350C, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen Eos.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Lexus IS 350C does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volkswagen Eos.

Handling
The Lexus IS 350C 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 Lexus IS 350C 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 Lexus IS 350C and the Volkswagen Eos. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Lexus IS 350C as you will in the Volkswagen Eos.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus IS 350C than that of the Volkswagen Eos.
