2012 Volkswagen Eos | new car review

Posted on Jul 15, 2012 by

The Eos is ’s newest and only coupe- and is slightly unusual in the industry in that it’s a self-contained model, not based on a sedan, coupe or hatchback version of an existing car. It’s wheelbase matches that of the Jetta but it shares no body panels or design with any existing VW car.

The previous version was available with two engine options but VW decided to drop the bigger V6 engine from the lineup. The received a facelift in and comes with a 5-piece retractable hard top.

The Volkswagen Eos is powered by a 2-litre inline-4 engine that produces 207bhp of maximum power. This is the same engine found in the Scirocco and it is paired with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic dual-clutch gearbox.

Whatever your interpretation, it’s safe to say that the Eos doesn’t shout about its abilities.

There’s room in the car for four and the five-part metal and glass roof will fold away in 25 seconds. With the roof space, there’s 380 litres of space in the boot, although if you want the fresh-weather experience, that decreases to 205 litres with the top stowed away. Available features include a Dynaudio sound system, CD player, electric windows and mirrors and leather upholstery, as well as rear parking sensors.

Safety features include ABS, six airbags and a rollover safety system, as well as electronic stability control.
