2014 Volkswagen Eos Overview
The front-wheel-drive four-seat Eos retractable-hardtop convertible comes standard with Volkswagen's turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Competitors include convertible versions of the Mini Cooper S and BMW 128i.
The Eos’s five-piece hardtop folds in 25 seconds, according to Volkswagen, and the top includes a power moonroof. Small wind deflector deploys above the windshield when the top is down and power heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals, dual exhaust tips, and LED taillights. The Eos sits on standard 17-inch alloy wheels with 18-inch wheels available.
For comfort, the Eos comes with leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, and heated front seats. Additional technology includes cruise control, navigation system, and a touch-screen six-CD stereo with Bluetooth audio streaming and iPod connectivity.
Under the Hood
A 200-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine lies underneath with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The engine prefers premium gas and can now run on E15 fuel, with four-wheel independent suspension, and electrically assisted power steering.
The Eos comes standard with side-impact airbags for the front seats, antilock brakes, electronic stability system, and pop-up roll bars.
