Following its debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show, the revised Volkswagen Eos has opened for ordering in the UK with a starting price of £22,895 (RRP, on the road) ahead of the first examples arriving in Volkswagen Retailers in early 2011.
Featuring a new look and offering a fresh range of comfort and convenience technologies the Volkswagen Eos remains the only vehicle of its kind to feature a five piece metal folding hard top complete with an integrated glass sunroof. For the first time, remote roof opening and closing is also available on the Volkswagen Eos.
The new model has now been brought into line with the styling direction adopted by the Volkswagen Polo, Golf and Passat, with a new bumper, a horizontal grille, a set of new headlights similar to those found on the Volkswagen Golf as well as a new bonnet and front wings. At the rear new light units and a bumper are joined by fresh interior trims and even the option of a new leather finish that reflects the sun's rays to prevent it heating up as normal leather would.
Powering the Volkswagen Eos is a range of powerful yet efficient TSI petrol and TDI diesel engines ranging from 122 PS to 210 PS, each equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox or, on selected models, the option of a six-speed DSG gearbox.Prices and Engine Line-Up For The New Volkswagen Eos
