What are critics saying about the Volkswagen Eos?
The Eos offers a compelling package to the right buyer. Its retractable hardtop isolates and secures the interior more strongly than a conventional soft top. What’s more, the Eos’ trick top features a sunroof, so you can dip your toes in the outside weather before jumping in.

The Eos is a clever little combo: Its folding hardtop makes it a closed coupe, an open-air convertible, and the roof has a sliding sunroof, too.

The Eos has one powertrain: a 200-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four with a six-speed DSG automatic and front-wheel drive. Like what you see? Act now; production ended in November 2015; when those are sold, that will be the end of the Eos. Read More >>
