Volkswagen Eos now available for order w/ Pricing in Europe

LOOK AHEAD TO SUMMER WITH VOLKSWAGEN’S EOS CONVERTIBLE COUPE

It’s time to banish those mid-winter blues and look ahead to warmer days: the Eos, Volkswagen’s new convertible coupé, is available to order now ahead of launch during July, with prices starting at £19,385.

The four-seater Eos combines the benefits of a full convertible and – for when the sun doesn’t shine – a hard-top coupé. Yet it is unique in its class, being the only convertible coupé with a tilt and slide sunroof fitted as standard.

The folding hard-top is made-up of five parts, enabling the roof to fold neatly into the boot, occupying minimal space. With the roof closed, boot capacity is 380 litres; with the roof ‘off’, luggage space is 205 litres. The roof function is neat and efficient: opening or closing takes just 25 seconds.

Two trim levels are available: standard and Sport. All models feature ESP (Electronic Stabilisation Programme), and twin front and combined curtain and side impact airbags for front and rear passengers. Semi-automatic air conditioning, fog lights, electric windows, electric heated and adjustable wing mirrors, radio/CD player, 16" alloy wheels, parking sensors and lockable load through provision are also standard.

Moving up the range, Sport trim adds 17" alloys, sports suspension, upgraded audio player, aluminium-look pedals, decorative aluminium dash inserts and a tyre pressure monitoring system. And at the top of the line-up, 17" ‘Westwood’ alloy wheels, Vienna leather trim, auto dimming rear view and driver’s wing mirror, rain and dusk sensors and folding wing mirrors are standard with the 3.2-litre V6 FSI 250 PS engine.

On top of the high level of standard specification, the Eos will have a substantial options list, enabling customers to create an almost bespoke vehicle. Items will include an amplified, high-quality Dynaudio speaker system, iPod adaptor and USB port for connecting memory sticks carrying MP3 music files.

The Eos will be offered with a choice of five engines: four petrol and one diesel. These include the 1.6-litre FSI 115 PS; 2.0-litre FSI 150 PS; 2.0-litre T-FSI 200 PS; 3.2-litre V6 250 PS; and 2.0-litre 140 PS TDI. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, while the 200 PS petrol and the TDI are offered with Volkswagen’s innovative DSG automatic gearbox; this ’box is standard with the V6 engine.

Available to order now are the manual versions of the 2.0-litre FSI 150 PS, 2.0-TDI 140 PS, and Sport 2.0-litre T-FSI 200 PS, with other models arriving in autumn.

The Eos made its international debut at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show, having been revealed as Concept C at the Geneva Automobile Salon just 18 months earlier. It is the latest in a long line of open-top vehicles from Volkswagen, the first being the Beetle in 1949. The New Beetle Cabriolet will continue to be sold alongside the Eos as a further open-top option from Volkswagen.

Eos is the greek goddess of the dawn. I would think that Helios would have been a little more fitting for a convertable.

Let's see, they're only how many years behind PSA, Renault, and GM with this car?

For added amusement, see Clarkson's article on the Jetta this week: http://driving.timesonline.co.uk/art...045424,00.html

I like it. VW has some beautiful cars finally. The Jetta is a little Corolla-ish but all the interiors are first class.

I realize that you can't directly convert the price of cars from one currency to another... BUT that top of the line one converts to almost $50k!

While there is no way it is going to cost that much here, I completely expect VW to over price this car.

I also think it llooks quite nice actually. I like the look of the new VWs, but not the price or quality problems.

Perhaps this is because the car’s made in Mexico: so it just wants to sit under a tree all day dozing.


I think the front is nice... but the rear of the car completely ruins it. It's so bland in the back... and it doesn't even look nice.

Just looks like a 2 door Jetta with a retractable hard top to me, nothing great but nothing bad. VW is getting very bad about overpricing their cars lately (Jetta and Passat immediately spring to mind!)

With the top up it kind of reminds me of the new convertible focus.

Wow. This baby looks very impressive. When will it hit the states? I can't find a firm release date other than "summer". I was thinking G6 (my wife wants it), but I like VW quality much more. http://www.volkswageneoscar.com/ Says that pre-orders are stacking up. The stock rims are a little small though. Still, an amazing lookin' car.
