VW Eos

VW Eos - top-down motoring for less cash

Volkswagen’s ‘convertible coupé’, the Eos, just became more affordable – with changes to the range and equipment upgrades.

There is now a new ‘S’ badged base model, which offers largely the same level equipment as the previous entry-level , but costs £585 less. So, instead of prices beginning at £20,025 for a 1.4 turbo petrol Eos with six-speed manual gearbox, the Eos S starts at £19,440.

Eos equipment upgrades

Standard kit includes VW’s ‘Climatic’ semi-automatic air conditioning, 16-inch alloys, remote locking, alarm, and electronic stability control (called ESP in VWs). And of course you get the clever five-part electric folding hard top roof, obviously.

Above the S there is now the Eos SE, which adds larger 17-inch alloys, rear parking sensors, trip computer, and a luxury pack including auto lights, auto wipers, and electric folding mirrors. This costs from £20,530, but represents an additional £735 in value over the previous £20,025 entry-level Eos.

The existing Eos Sport trim, priced from £22,730, gains new 18-inch alloys and the luxury pack (worth £670, apparently). The range-topping Eos Individual spec, priced from £26,370, now also benefits from the luxury pack (a £275 bonus).

The new Eos model range is available to order now.
