Vehicle Overview

The Eos is a four-seat hardtop convertible, and it occupies a small niche in the car market. It's sold in Komfort and ritzier Lux trim levels.

New for 2011
Volkswagen's multimedia interface with an iPod cable is now standard, and the Komfort model gets standard 17-inch alloy wheels, same as the Lux. The free trial subscription for Sirius satellite radio has been reduced to three months from six.

Exterior
The Eos has a clean, sporty look with design cues similar to those on the Jetta. VW says the power hardtop's operation takes about 25 seconds. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 17-inch wheels
  • Available 18-inch wheels (Lux)
  • Standard daytime running lights
  • Standard power-operated and heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals
  • Standard heated washer fluid
  • Optional xenon headlights
  • Optional adaptive headlights that swivel in the direction of turns
  • Optional automatic wipers

Interior
The Eos offers VW's storied interior design and materials. A relatively low windshield grants an exceptional open-air feeling, even for front occupants. The power front seats are designed to motor forward to enable backseat access and then return to their original position.

Typical of retractable hardtops, the Eos loses trunk space when the top is down, but it has a pass-through to the cabin, a rare feature in convertibles. Interior features include:

  • Available simulated leather and leather upholstery
  • Standard leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Standard heated seats
  • Standard power windows and locks
  • Standard Bluetooth
  • Standard multimedia interface with iPod cable
  • Optional 600-watt 10-speaker audio system
  • Optional navigation unit

Under the Hood
The Eos uses the same turbocharged engine as several other VW and Audi models. Mechanical features include:

  • 200-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder with 207 pounds-feet of torque
  • Six-speed manual or automatic transmission
  • Front-wheel drive

Safety
Side-impact airbags in the Eos deploy from the front seats and are designed to protect occupants' heads in the absence of roof-mounted side curtain airbags, which can't be installed in a convertible's roof. Safety features include:

  • Standard side-impact airbags
  • Standard rollover protection system
  • Standard antilock braking system and traction control
  • Standard electronic stability control
  • Standard alarm system
  • Optional rear parking sensors
