The Volkswagen Eos is the German automaker's first mechanically retractable hardtop convertible, as well as the first production coupe since the 1995 Corrado. The 2011 Volkswagen Eos was originally shown on the show floor as the Concept C, and uses the same Mark V platform as the Jetta. The 2011 Eos's base engine is a two-liter, inline four-cylinder engine using Volkswagen's Fuel Stratified Injection.
Another engine option is a 3.2-liter VR6, boosting horsepower to 250, but narrows the range for peak performance. The 2011 Eos is available either with a 6-speed manual shifter or an optional DSG transmission. The interior has significant upgrades with a 12-way power driver's seat and armrests, as well as semi-automatic climate control. Also coming standard is leather-wrapped steering wheel, shift knob, and heated seats.
