Volkswagen Eos gets a makeover


A revised Volkswagen Eos coupe cabriolet has gone on display at the LA Auto Show, with a host of technical and visual changes

The new Eos will be available with a range of efficient petrol and diesel engines. These include a 1.4-litre TSI, a 2.0-litre TSI unit as well as a refined 2.0-litre TDI engine. BlueMotion Technology variants will also be available featuring Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems.

As with earlier models, the Eos features a five-piece folding roof with an integrated tilt sliding glass sunroof. To go from a closed coupé to an open cabriolet – which can now happen remotely via the key fob if the car is specified with Keyless Entry – takes 25 seconds, while the boot capacity ranges from 205 litres when the roof is down up to 380 litres with the roof closed.

Park Assist will also be available for the first time on the Eos.

A revised design brings the Eos into line with the latest iteration of Volkswagen’s design language as seen applied to the new Polo, Passat and Sharan. Highlights include a prominent new grille complete with chrome highlights, plus a set of new headlight units with the option of integrated LED daytime running lights. A modified front bumper with new airdams and fog lights work with the reprofiled bonnet. At the back of the car a set of new tail lights.

Inside, new trim finishes include a leather multifunction steering wheel, air conditioning, a powerful eight-speaker CD stereo system and sports seats.

Another highlight is the so-called ‘cool leather’ as an upholstery option which, reportedly reflects the sun’s rays to prevent it heating up as conventional leather would.
