Volkswagen has unveiled the new face of the Volkswagen Eos convertible coupe ahead of its public debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show on 17th November 2010.
The modifications bring the Eos in line with the latest iteration of Volkswagen's design language as seen applied to the new Volkswagen Polo, Volkswagen Passat and Volkswagen Sharan. Horizontal lines dominate the front of the car with a prominent new grille complete with chrome highlights that create the impression that the Volkswagen Eos is wider and lower than the car it replaces. A set of new headlight units, similar in shape to those fitted to the Volkswagen Golf, features the option of integrated LED daytime running lights to lend the revised Volkswagen Eos an elegant new look.
A revised front bumper featuring new airdams and fog lights is joined by a reprofiled bonnet. At the back of the car a set of new tail lights, drawing on the look of those fitted to the new Volkswagen Passat, creates a distinctive new appearance.
As before, the Volkswagen Eos features an advanced five piece folding roof with an integrated tilt sliding glass sunroof. To go from a closed coupe to an open cabriolet - an operation that can now be undertaken remotely via the key fob if the car is specified with Keyless Entry - takes just 25 seconds while the boot capacity ranges from 205 litres when the roof is down up to 380 litres with the roof closed.
Inside, new trim finishes enhance the interior of the Volkswagen Eos which is both comfortable and extremely well equipped. Highlights include a leather multifunction steering wheel, air conditioning, a powerful eight-speaker CD stereo system and sports seats.
The new Volkswagen Eos will be available with a range of efficient petrol and diesel engines when deliveries commence in the UK early in 2011. These include a 1.4-litre TSI engine developing 122 PS, a 2.0-litre TSI unit producing 210 PS as well as a refined 2.0-litre TDI engine producing 140 PS. This unit, with BlueMotion Technology modifications including automatic Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems, can return a combined economy of 58.8 mpg.
Prices and specifications for the new Volkswagen Eos will be announced when ordering opens for the car in November 2010.
