Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

The front-wheel-drive four-seat Eos retractable-hardtop convertible comes standard with Volkswagen's turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Competitors include convertible versions of the Mini Cooper S and BMW 128i. New for 2013 Volkswagen adds a new Sport trim to the Eos lineup. It includes 18-inch alloy wheels, a lowered sport suspension, bi-xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights with LED daytime running lights, a rear spoiler, black side mirrors, stainless-steel pedals and black interior trim. The Lux model also gets a sport suspension, and the Executive version adds a backup camera. Exterior Changes last year to the nose and tail gave the Eos a more assertive look. The front bumper cleanly separates the upper grille from the lower air dam.
Volkswagen says the Eos' five-piece hardtop folds in just 25 seconds. The top includes a power moonroof, which can open independently. With the top down, a small wind deflector deploys above the windshield. Exterior features include:
Standard 17-inch alloy wheels; 18-inch wheels available
Power heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals
Dual exhaust tips
Interior Redesigned controls — both along the steering wheel and center dashboard — differentiate the 2012 and 2013 Eos from earlier years. Chrome-flecked switches now operate the windows and headlights. Apart from that, the cabin carries the same conservative styling and upscale materials as before. Interior features include:
Leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel
Dual-zone climate control
Touch-screen six-CD stereo with Bluetooth audio streaming and iPod connectivity
Heated front seats
Available touch-screen navigation system
Under the Hood The Eos is powered by a 200-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 207 pounds-feet of torque. A six-speed dual-clutch automatic is the lone transmission. Mechanical features include:
Engine prefers premium gas
Four-wheel independent suspension
Electrically assisted power steering
Safety Safety features include:
Side-impact airbags for the front seats
