Summary:

Volkswagen Eos Coupe Cabriolet is a good sign of German automotive engineering. It will provide you quality, reliability, performance and prestige feel.

Volkswagen Eos is a fun to drive car due to its luxurious ride, handling and sophistication. Our review is based on analysis of car reviews published online for VW Eos Coupe Cabriolet. It can accommodate four passengers without making you discomfort able. It is economical considering the low-end versions, but the high level trims can cost you a good amount. You love the roof folding mechanism, but it covers most of the boot leaving very less space.

Volkswagen Eos Coupe Cabriolet has its own worth thanks to its balanced performance, luxury and refinement. VW has a history of making cars that ticks people mind since 1937 when it was originally founded by Nazi auto trade union. VW Eos comes with a metal roof that reduces the road and wind noise much more than competitors having fabric roof. There is no annoying sound inside the car even at motorway speeds, but you may hear some though.

Power & Performance

It has impressive agile engines even the entry level 1.4 litre TSI petrol engine produces 158bhp. It will satisfy you because of fast paced performance, low staring price and economical fuel average. You can also go for 2.0 litre TDI engines that produce 208bhp and the other one is balanced for economy with 138bhp. Both of the engines are available with twin clutch transmission system.

Everything is perfectly balanced in Eos that you won’t feel any shakes during tough turns. The metallic roof aids in good handling and driving experience even at high speed. The sport models are real fun to driver and they offer lower firmer suspension with big alloy wheels. You can predict the steering and control the car precisely on tough corners thanks to safe road grip and handling.

Interior & Exterior

The design of VW Eos is perfectly engineered that makes the entry and exit from the car very comfortable. You won’t feel any discomfort thanks to multi-level seat adjustment. The driving position is good with visible rear and side view when the roof is up. You will like the dashboard buttons, wisely placed for easy to use.

It offers good practical space inside the car, which is quite different than other rivals. It can seat four adult passengers without making them feel cramped. However, the boot space is limited when you have the roof folded down. This is not a major issue as long as you are not driving your coupe cabriolet to long trips that require a lot of packing.

It offers unique equipment and styling like all models have sun-roof. The other features include alloy wheels, electric windows, air conditioning, and rear parking sensors, automatic lights and rain sensor wipers. The Tech Excel models have extra features that will surely delight you like heated front seats, darkened rear lights, climate control system and full leather trim.

Safety & Reliability

The Volkswagen Eos Coupe Cabriolet has good reliability and high resale values, which covers its pricey cost. There are no complaints about solid and high quality materials used in the vehicle. Everything looks classy, well crafted and decently priced as long as you choose the entry level model. It also received 4 out 5 rating in JD Power customer satisfaction survey.

It is pre-loaded with safety equipment like side airbags that almost works like curtain airbags. There is also stability control system and ISOFIX child seat mountings. When you have roof folded up, it will be safe just like every other coupe and there are hoops rolls that comes out when car detects rollover. There is no crash test data for Eos Coupe Cabriolet from Euro NCAP, but the 2009 version received 4 star rating.

eBest Cars Verdict

It is also a greener car than its rivals with lower CO2 emissions with 121-130 to 151-165 g/km. It falls in the tax band D-G making it less expensive having £105 – £175 tax per annum. It is a perfect coupe convertible that everyone can imagine having a good prestige image.
