2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class vs. 2015 Volkswagen Eos Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Eos, the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volkswagen Eos, due to its larger tank size and better 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 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class will cost more in transportation costs than the Volkswagen Eos.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class 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. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volkswagen Eos.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volkswagen Eos.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class is somewhat more powerful than the Volkswagen Eos.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class has less seating than the Volkswagen Eos, making the Volkswagen Eos the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class as you will in the Volkswagen Eos.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class than that of the Volkswagen Eos.
