What Is the 2015 Volkswagen Eos?
The 2015 Volkswagen Eos is a front-wheel-drive hardtop convertible that seats four and competes with the BMW 128i, Mini Cooper S and Lexus IS 250C. Trim levels include the Komfort Edition, Final Edition and Executive Edition.
What's New on the 2015 Volkswagen Eos?
Because 2015 is the last year the Eos will be offered, Volkswagen replaced the Eos Sport trim level with the Final Edition. It includes a backup camera, rain-sensing wipers, unique interior trim and 18-inch Vicenza wheels.
How Does the 2015 Volkswagen Eos Compare to Other Convertibles?
In the trunk, the Eos has more space than the Mini Cooper S but less room than the BMW 128i and Lexus IS 250C. While the BMW 128i and Lexus IS 250C are both more expensive, they're true luxury vehicles, and the Mini Cooper S Convertible is a better choice if you're looking for a lower price.
What Features in the 2015 Volkswagen Eos Are Most Important?
The 2015 Eos comes standard with a 200-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. A six-speed automated manual transmission, electrically assisted power steering and four-wheel independent suspension are standard as well.
Significant standard features include a five-piece power-retractable hard top with power moonroof, a wind deflector, LED taillights, dual exhaust tips, power heated side mirrors with built-in turn signals, 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, a touchscreen six-CD stereo with Bluetooth streaming audio and iPod connectivity, a navigation system, heated front seats, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel and cruise control. Available features include 18-inch wheels, keyless entry, rain-sensing wipers and a backup camera.
As required with all new vehicles, the Volkswagen Eos includes front airbags, an electronic stability system and antilock brakes. Other standard safety features include pop-up roll bars, integrated roll-over protection, side-impact airbags for the front seats, brake assist and traction control.
Should I Buy the 2015 Volkswagen Eos?
The 2015 Volkswagen Eos is a good choice if you want a convertible with a smooth ride, tranquil cabin and strong performance. It also features easy-to-use controls and a unique moonroof built into its convertible top. However, its small trunk and backseat, limited rear visibility and balky automated manual transmission are marks against it. Volkswagen also recommends premium gas, and the Eos requires high clearance when opening the top.
