2014 Volkswagen Beetle vs. 2014 Volkswagen Eos Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Volkswagen Beetle offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volkswagen Eos. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Volkswagen Beetle and the Volkswagen Eos in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Beetle 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). Based on MSRP, the Volkswagen Beetle 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 Volkswagen Beetle will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volkswagen Eos.

Dimensions
The Volkswagen Beetle is about the same width as the Volkswagen Eos. The Volkswagen Beetle is slightly shorter than the Volkswagen Eos, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Volkswagen Beetle transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volkswagen Eos.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volkswagen Beetle is significantly less powerful than the Volkswagen Eos. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volkswagen Beetle and the Volkswagen Eos. The Volkswagen Beetle has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Eos, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Volkswagen Beetle comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Eos.
