2014 MINI MINI-Convertible vs. 2014 Volkswagen Eos Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The MINI MINI-Convertible offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volkswagen Eos with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Convertible, drivers may find the Volkswagen Eos a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the MINI MINI-Convertible 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). Based on MSRP, the MINI MINI-Convertible is clearly a better financial choice over 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. In this case, the MINI MINI-Convertible will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volkswagen Eos.

Dimensions
Since the MINI MINI-Convertible is much slimmer than the Volkswagen Eos, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the MINI MINI-Convertible, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volkswagen Eos.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the MINI MINI-Convertible doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Eos.

Handling
The MINI MINI-Convertible has about the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Eos, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The MINI MINI-Convertible has less horsepower than the Volkswagen Eos, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the MINI MINI-Convertible and the Volkswagen Eos. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the MINI MINI-Convertible will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volkswagen Eos.

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