If you're ready to roll down South Florida's highways with the wind in your hair and a smile on your face, then hop into the 2015 Volkswagen Eos. This hardtop convertible was made for Port St. Lucie, Palm City, White City and Jupiter's roads, and Wallace Volkswagen in Stuart, FL, would like to make you a great deal on a 2015 Eos today! So come on down to our showroom and take this spirited car for a spin!
Let's see how the 2015 Volkswagen Eos compares to the Lexus IS C 250.
Price and Value
There's no denying that a Lexus comes with a premium price tag, even if the amenities are the same. The starting MSRP of $36,145 for the 2015 Volkswagen Eos blows the Lexus IS C out of the water with its steep $43,360 price tag. And the Eos Komfort base model even comes with standard touchscreen navigation. You'll pay over $6000 more for the Lexus IS C from the get-go. And since the 2015 Eos is the only convertible that also has a power panoramic sunroof, so you can still get all of Florida's sunshine without putting the top down. You won't get a feature that's anything close to that on the Lexus IS C 250.
Volkswagen Eos Dimensions versus Lexus IS C 250 Dimensions
While it might not seem that headroom makes a difference in a convertible, what about when it rains? This is where the 2015 Eos shines -- when the top is up. The front headroom in the Eos comes in at 38.9 inches while the IS C only manages 38.3. While that half inch may seem a small difference, it can be huge when it comes to taller drivers and the car they choose. And since both cars are 4-seaters, rear-seat passengers will want to ride in comfort. And they will in the 2015 Eos, which offers almost 7 more inches of legroom for backseat passengers than the IS C 250 -- 32.5 inches vs. 25.9 inches. So if you're going to drive your friends and family around town in a convertible, the 2015 Volkswagen Eos wins.
Eos Engine Compared to IS C 250 Engine
The 2015 Eos comes packed with power with one available engine -- a 2.0T 4-cylinder TSI with 200hp and 207 pound-feet of torque. It comes standard with a 6-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport modes. With that powertrain, you'll get and EPA-estimated 22 city/30 highway mpg. By contrast, the Lexus IS C comes with a 2.5L V6 with 204hp and 183 pound-feet of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is standard. But the IS C's more powerful engine takes away from fuel economy, with the IS C 250 managing an estimated 21 city/30 highway mpg. And let's not forget that the 2015 Volkswagen Eos is German-engineered; it's the clear choice for drivers who want control!
