2012 Volkswagen Eos

2012 Volkswagen Eos Review

(0 Stars)  The perfect wheels for worshipping the sun.

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The Eos might not be an enthusiast’s dream car, but it’s a solid value if you’re in the market for a convertible with a real back seat. The base model undercuts the price of several other four-seat, retractable-hard-top convertibles while delivering an excellent open-air experience. Riding on the same versatile platform that underpins VW’s other compact offerings, the Eos handles well and rides with a pleasant suppleness, and engineers were able to keep the loss of structural rigidity to a minimum. But it’s the engine—a refined and energetic turbocharged four-cylinder—that gives the Eos its star quality. Volkswagen’s six-speed dual-clutch transmission is a sporty, engaging alternative to a conventional automatic. Inside, the Eos boasts a level of refinement that transcends its price; the cabin far surpasses that of the Chrysler 200 convertible in terms of fit and finish. The five-piece glass-and-steel roof lowers in twenty-five seconds with the push of a button. If you’re in the mood for a bit less wind and sun, this Volkswagen can manage that, too. All Eos models come with a sunroof that tilts and slides open. At 44 inches wide, it’s larger than the sunroofs in most fixed-roof cars. Cargo space is generous with the top up, but top-down weekend trips with four people will require packing lightly, as trunk space shrinks significantly with the top stowed.
