2012 Volkswagen Eos OverviewThe 2012 Volkswagen Eos has much to offer for those seeking open-air fun. A stylish combination of sporty performance and a three-way folding hardtop means the Eos can be a top-down convertible or a weather-proof coupe with a large sunroof for year round entertainment. For 2012 Eos is offered in three trim levels, Komfort, Lux and Executive.
All Eos models are front-wheel drive and powered by Volkswagen's excellent direct-injected turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. The DOHC unit produces 200 hp and 207 lb-feet of torque. It's enough to give the Eos plenty of performance, while offering decent fuel economy, which is estimated at 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. VW's brilliant DSG twin-clutch automatic with Tiptronic and Sport mode is standard on all models.
The Eos features a retractable hardtop, which takes just 25 seconds to deploy. Cleverly engineered into that top is a power sunroof, which adds to the car's unique functionality.
Despite its open cabin, the Eos possesses a rigid chassis that allows for responsive and predictable handling, top up or down. Much of this is also due to the car's advanced independent suspension.
In Komfort trim, the Eos offers standard 16-inch alloy wheels, remote entry, power driver's seat with a faux leather surface, power mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 6-CD changer, heated windshield wipers, and an astonishing list of standard comfort and safety features. Lux cars come equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, leather seating, interior walnut trim, and a 600-watt stereo. The 18-inch alloy wheels, navigation, xenon headlights, parking sensors and sport suspension are standard on the Executive package.
Safety features abound in the Eos series. Front, side and side curtain airbags are all standard, as is an automatic rollover protection system. Anti-lock brakes and VW's electronic stability program (ESP) are also standard.
