Car reviews - Volkswagen - Eos - coupe-convertible range


VW Eos is classy and good value, but the body is a bit wobbly with the top down

24 May 2011

VOLKSWAGEN’S car for all seasons has been given a facelift, tying the four-seat convertible in with the rest of the newly introduced VW models while leaving the fundamentals largely alone. The Eos still relies on the popular mixture of comfort, luxury and performance for a relatively inexpensive ticket price. Customers can still choose from turbo diesel or turbo petrol engines, teamed with VW’s six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The metal folding lid has been retained, as has the large panoramic sunroof, leather trim and heated front seats for winter cruising.
