The 2010 Volkswagen Eos
is a two-door, four-passenger convertible with a five-part power-retractable hardtop and a built-in sunroof. Equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, the Volkswagen Eos provides a choice of a Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) dual clutch automatic or a six-speed manual transmission.
Sporting a drop-top configuration, the Volkswagen Eos boasts a roof that can fold down in only thirty seconds, and it also has a unique integrated glass sunroof! The Eos is speedy with a peppy engine, a premium interior, and ample cargo space for a vehicle in its class. Not only is the Eos fuel efficient, with an EPA- rating in the 21 mpg city / 31 mpg highway range, it also earned top safety ratings.

On the Outside
While the Volkswagen Eos looks better with its top down than its top up, it definitely boasts an upscale appearance, with a large selection of wheels up to 18-inches in diameter.
From the Inside
Inside the cabin, the Volkswagen Eos displays metallic-look surfaces and high quality plastics, which gives it a premium appearance. Furthermore, the design and layout of its controls is clean and simple. Upgrade to the Lux trim, and the Eos is filled with Burlwood accents.
Sprinting 0-60 in 7.4 seconds, the Volkswagen Eos displays good performance, showing the VW's 2.0-liter turbo engine and DSG transmission are a good combination. With an acceptable amount of chassis flex for a convertible in its class, the Eos is more of an around-town car than a twisty-turner, but you can still have in an Eos.
Standard safety equipment on the Volkswagen Eos includes driver and front passenger front airbags, combined side-curtain and side-thorax airbags, rollover protection system, front seatbelt pre-tensioners, traction control, and electronic stability control.
