About the Eos

Volkswagen has had some interesting experiments with cabriolets and coupes in its range. New cabriolets are still being introduced or retained in the lineup, but one that in recent years fell out of the range was the Volkswagen Eos. It was produced mostly for the European and North American markets between 2005 and 2016, but models were also sold in Japan, New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa.

Like so many of the unique mid-size sedan and cabriolet models that have come from VW in the past several years, there was something distinctly “Passat” about the design, mostly derived from the design of the front end. Despite these perceptions, and VW’s history of making cabriolets by simply converting existing models, the Eos was actually a stand-alone model with totally new body panels.

It wasn’t entirely independent, however, as it still shared a platform with the Golf Mk5, as well as a number of key components. Its wheelbase was identical to the Volkswagen Jetta. Most distinct on the Eos was its sporty roof design.

The roof comprised a 5-piece folding roof mechanism that housed an independently sliding glass sunroof. The design made it truly unique in its class, and there were no other retractable hardtop cars like this available. It came at a serious cost to trunk space, however, lowering the expected 10.5 cubic feet (already very low, even for a sedan) to just 6.6 cubic feet.

Powertrains ranged from a standard 1.4L inline-4 gasoline engine to a 3.6L gasoline V6 engine. In between, there was a 1.6L and a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, as well as another 3.2L V6 engine, and a 2.0L 4-cylinder diesel engine.

Declining sales eventually spelled the end for the Volkswagen Eos, but VW did create a “Final Edition” model for sale in the US market. It was only available in its Sport trim, with a two-tone interior in beige and black leather. It featured a backup camera and parking sensors.
