The 2012 Volkswagen Eos, available at Volkswagen of Naples in Naples Florida, is named after the mythical Greek goddess of dawn.
The 2012 Volkswagen Eos delivers the top-down thrill of driving on a sunny day. It’s not intended for hard-core driving enthusiasts, but it will undoubtedly please those looking for a comfortable convertible that’s still capable on back roads. Top up or top down, it has flowing lines that make it look as if it were designed in a wind tunnel.
There was a time when retractable, hardtop convertibles were limited to expensive cars. Today, most small, moderately priced convertibles have retractable tops. The Volkswagen Eos is a good example. A convertible no longer means a canvas top, and that’s a boon to folks who want to enjoy top-down driving when the weather is good without sacrificing the comfort and convenience of a coupe when the weather is marginal.
It’s a snap to let in the sunshine because the Eos’ top folds into the trunk in 25 seconds at the touch of a button. The folding roof has a glass panel that functions like a sunroof. The hard top also keeps out noise.
The Eos has a fairly short 101.5-inch wheelbase, so it drives and handles like a compact sedan. The front seat has adequate space but the back seat is pretty tight for anyone other than small adults or children. Getting into the back seat is aided by sliding the front seats forward.
The Eos is powered by VW’s 200-horsepower, turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, mated to the excellent Direct-Shift Gearbox. The turbo provides strong low-speed throttle response, and stepping into the throttle yields performance on par with a small V-6.
The six-speed DSG gearbox has an automatic dual-clutch system that instantly engages and disengages gears without the need for a clutch pedal. With a special computer controlling the process, one clutch is engaged on the next gear needed while the clutch from the previous gear is released. Crisp, quick shifts are the result, especially when driven with gusto.
This engine’s direct fuel injection sprays gas into each cylinder for enhanced performance and economy, and it works very well in concert with a turbocharger. Fuel economy, on the other hand, is rated at 22 miles per gallon in the city and 30 on the highway.
Volkswagen interiors have long been a model of good design, nice materials and thoughtful details. The Eos continues that trend. The gauges have bright blue numerals at night. The large sections of flat silver trim on the center stack look less elegant than some of VW’s previous interiors.
The sloping windshield lets passengers sit low and out of much of the wind when the top is down. A removable wind-blocker can also be set up behind the front seats to reduce wind buffeting even more.
Roll bars pop up from behind the rear seats in case of a severe collision or a vehicle rollover. The power folding outside
mirrors have LED side turn signal lights as well as small lights that illuminate the ground in front of the doors at night.
The Eos has front, side and side-curtain airbags. Anti-lock brakes and vehicle stability control are standard.
The warranty is three years or 36,000 miles with a five-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty. All scheduled maintenance is covered for three years or 36,000 miles.
