The Volkswagen Eos was first introduced for the 1997 model year. It is a four-seat, two-door convertible with a retractable hardtop, which helped separate the model from the more traditional convertible entrants in its class which use a canvas top. The Eos replaced the previous Cabrio in the lineup and at its debut was outfitted with a 2.0L inline four-cylinder engine. However, soon after, a bolder 3.2L V6 configuration which showcased up to 250 horsepower along with 235 pounds-per-foot of torque also became available. The turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine was directed through either a six-speed manual transmission or Volkswagen's Direct Shift Gearbox, as did the 3.2L. As for the model's dimensions, the Eos measured in with a wheelbase of 101.5 inches, a width of 70.5 inches, a height of 56.8 inches, and an overall length of 173.5 inches.
2008 welcomed in a whole new array of trim levels for the Volkswagen Eos. The model began being offered as the Turbo, Komfort, Lux, and VR6. The Turbo and Komfort trim levels were very similar to the previous base and 2.0T trims while the Lux displayed an increase in luxury features but still running off of the same turbocharged inline four-cylinder as the base and 2.0T. Likewise, the VR6 ran on the same 3.2L V6 as it had during its introductory year, except it now offered sport seats and 18” wheels. All models throughout the lineup were available with Volkswagen's DVD-based navigation system, a ten-speaker Dynaudio stereo, and adaptive xenon HID headlights.
For the 2009 model year, the 3.2L V6 engine was removed from the lineup, leaving only the 2.0 turbocharged inline four-cylinder configuration as standard across the lineup. It was good for 200 horsepower along with 207 pounds-per-foot of torque directed through a six-speed manual transmission. Optional was the DSG for all models. Other changes were parking assist (now optional) and a new navigation system (optional). The main difference with the navigation system this time around is that it featured a new integrated hard drive with a USB port. Changes for the 2010 model year included the addition of a touchscreen interface to the stereo, a new standard leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth capability. The Lux trim received 18” wheels, a sport-suspension, and chrome accents while iPod connectivity was offered as an option for all versions of the Eos.
From the breezy performance to the smooth yet intense body-shape, the Volkswagen Eos is capable of blistering style and attitude. Maybe that's why drivers of this model find it so satisfying. When a car like this is so versatile it means you have plenty of options. Responsive handling as well as reliable Eos parts, modern amenities, and a fashionable look make the Volkswagen Eos one ride to keep an eye on.
