2012 Volkswagen Eos: First Look

2012 Volkswagen Eos

  • Competes with: Mini Cooper, Volvo C70 
  • Looks like: Corporate dullsville hits the convertibles, too 
  • Drivetrain: Likely the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in the current Eos 
  • Hits dealerships: Spring 2011 

Volkswagen announced today it would show its redesigned Eos hardtop convertible at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show in November. Along with the images above and below, VW confirms that the new corporate grille is made up of “three shiny black louvers.” The headlights also have LED daytime running lights, which we assume are available on higher trims like in the new Jetta. The rear taillights are also LEDs, and that’s for the entire range.
 
We’ll learn more about any powertrain changes at the show, but VW says there is an updated instrument panel with a color display and an updated version of its park assist system. The keyless entry system also adds the ability to close and open the roof via the key fob, but that is likely an option or available only on higher trim levels.

I personally feel that VW is taking a step back with their new front end design. The new grills are completely dull and not as engaging as the previous design. VWs new front end treatment only truly works on the GTI but that to, took a while to grow on me. VW....TRY AGAIN.

I agree the new VW grille designs are a bit dull. But thank goodness they're ditching those oversized, bulbous headlight designs that look like something from a Chrysler minivan.

Ex trimly nice car for internal and external designed. 2010 Volkswagen Eos is a front wheel drive, two door hardtop convertible with seating for four. Eos is two trim levels -Komfort and Lux. 2010 Volkswagen Eos models are powered by the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, which makes 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. It also give six-speed manual transmission which function in a tradition automatic. Eos contain anti clock dis breaks. I like this car.
