New 2011 VW Eos - Web Exclusive

The modifications bring the Eos in line with the latest iteration of Volkswagen's design language, as seen on the new Passat.

Oct 8, 2010

Volkswagen has unveiled the new Eos convertible coupe ahead of its public debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show on 17 November.

The modifications bring the Eos in line with the latest iteration of Volkswagen's design language, as seen on the new Passat.

Horizontal lines dominate the front of the car, with a prominent new grille complete with chrome highlights to create the impression the Eos is wider and lower than the car it replaces.

A set of new headlights, similar in shape to those fitted to the Golf, features the option of integrated LED daytime running lights.

A revised front bumper features new air dams and foglights. It is joined by a re-profiled hood. At the back of the car, a set of new tail lights, similar to those on the new Passat, create a distinctive appearance.

As before, the Eos features an advanced five-piece folding roof with an integrated tilt/sliding glass sunroof. To go from closed coupe to 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.

Inside, new trim enhances the interior. Highlights include a leather multi-function steering wheel, air conditioning, an eight-speaker CD stereo system and sports seats.

The new Eos will be available in Europe with a range of gasoline and diesel engines when deliveries commence in early in 2011. These include a 1.4-liter TSI engine developing 122hp, a 2.0-liter TSI unit producing 210hp as well as a refined 2.0-liter TDI engine producing 140hp. This unit, with BlueMotion Technology modifications including automatic Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems, can return a combined economy of 49mpg US. There is no word about US engine options at present but this should be available by the time of the LA show.
