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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
