2014 Volkswagen Eos Cars.com Review


Let's cut to the chase: The 2014 Volkswagen Eos is just too darned expensive. Cars.com reviewer Jennifer Geiger said the hardtop convertible's looks are handsome but not sexy; its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder is peppy but dragged down by an unrefined automated manual transmission; and the interior is nice but nothing special. All told, despite being fun and comfortable, the Eos just doesn't offer enough of, well, anything to justify paying as much as $42,560 (including destination) for the top trim when competing luxury brands can be had for less while offering more. Read Geiger's review below.

2014 Volkswagen Eos Review



Hardtop convertibles:
Volvo C70 $41K
Lexus IS 250 $42K
Infinity G37 $48K
based on above list the EOS seems like a real bargain to me.
just my humble opinion


The problem with this VW is the problem with a lot of VWs. They miss the mark.

Most VWs are either priced above their competition with no justifiable reason or become the "import-budget" choice with less than average quality/features in comparison.

The Eos manages both. It's cheaper than it's competition with lower quality, features and performance but it's also more expensive than most other cars in the VW stable with no justification other than the top.


I am so sad to hear that it is being cut from the American team! I swear my vw dealer had some great deals but I suppose it just wasn't across the board!
