The Eos is the newest convertible from Volkswagen, and it is the only hardtop convertible with a built-in sunroof. As the Cabrio is phased out this year, the Eos will take over as the flagship convertible. Let’s take a look at what makes this vehicle a great choice for 2012:
One of the best aspects of VW’s newest convertible is its performance. A 200 hp, 2.0 liter in-line 4-cylinder turbocharged engine equipped with an intercooler sits under the hood of the Eos. This power plant is capable of accelerating the Eos up to 60 mph from a standstill in only 6.8 seconds. The Eos’ engine comes coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic and sport-mode shifting. A quick-shifting transmission also results in increased efficiency—the Eos is capable of up to 29 mpg during highway driving.
Cutting-Edge Safety Systems
While driving an Eos is fun, it is also practical, and a variety of safety systems help protect driver and passenger from the risks of the road. Electronic stability control helps drivers maintain traction during wet driving scenarios, and a crash-optimized front end helps reduce the likelihood of driver injury during a head-on collision. Additionally, a rollover safety system can detect if the car is rolling and deploys extra steel head protection for passengers.
Leaps forward from the Cabrio it replaces, the Eos’ cabin is full of intuitive driving and entertainment systems that keep commuting simple and fun. With a media-device interface compatible with iPods and other MP3 players, your entire music library can be at your fingertips—and a Bluetooth feature allows for hands-free communication while on the road.
