2009 Volkswagen Eos Convertible, Updated - (Global)

October 31st, 2008
Previous - Next



Volkswagen has expanded its Eos convertible coupé range, introducing a new entry-level model with a lower price and offering customers better value than ever.

The newly introduced S trim will cost £585 less than the current entry-level Eos, which in turn gains extra specification and will now be known as SE.  The Sport and Individual models will remain, but also gain additional equipment.

The previous entry price for the Eos was £20,025, but prices for the new line-up start from £19,440 RRP ‘on the road’ for the S 1.4-litre TSI with 122 PS and six-speed manual gearbox.  Specification remains largely unchanged with all models featuring ABS with ESP (Electronic Stabilisation Programme), ‘Climatic’ semi-automatic air conditioning, 16-inch alloy wheels, remote control central locking with alarm and five-section electric roof system as standard among a host of other items.

Moving up to SE and costing from £20,530, this model gains a multifunction computer, rear parking sensors, and front centre armrest plus 17-inch alloy wheels and a luxury pack (comprising automatic coming/leaving home lighting function, rain and dusk sensor plus electrically foldable door mirrors).  These additions represent a £735 enhancement in value over the previous base model.  Sport and Individual trim levels are also boosted.  Sport now features upgraded 18-inch alloy wheels and luxury pack (£670 enhancement) while Individual also benefits from the luxury pack (£275).

The four-seater Eos has proved extremely successful since launch in July 2006.  Since then over 12,800 Eos models have been sold.
