With the Volkswagen Eos you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the smart fortwo, due to its tank size and fuel economy.
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 smart fortwo 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. The smart fortwo carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volkswagen Eos.
