November 6, 2012 at 09:29

We will not keep it as a secret any longer, we are the very active lovers of the convertibles, especially if we are talking about the convertibles of the new generation. For today’s fight we decided to pick two very interesting models, therefore we hope that the fight will also be quite peculiar. Let’s welcome the contestants: 2013th year Volkswagen Eos and the 2013 Lexus IS250.

These two cars appear at the upper class, therefore the prices for them are quite high. New Volkswagen Eos will cost you $34,500, while new Lexus is even more luxury vehicle, therefore the price for it is $42,510. Now let’s see what these two models can offer as a core. New Volkswagen is equipped with 2.0-Liter 200-horsepower I4 engine, while new Lexus appears to be also a little bit more powerful, with its new engine of 2.5-Liter 204-horsepower V6. And apparently with bigger volume comes lower fuel efficiency, on average Lexus falls behind by 2 mpg than Volkswagen, which offers 22 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway.

So in the end, we think that Volkswagen is the more profitable offering, even though it is a little less luxurious than new Lexus.
