VW Eos Arrives in North American Showrooms for Sneek Peeks and Test Drives

Text from Volkswagen of America.
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – North American consumers now have a chance to test-drive Europe’s top-selling convertible—the 2007 Volkswagen Eos, featuring a revolutionary five-panel roof that transforms a hardtop coupe roof with an integrated sunroof to an open convertible.

The Eos, which goes on sale this fall, arrived in showrooms across the country last week for consumer test-drives and displays.

Volkswagen offers the Eos with two engines: an award-winning 2.0 liter turbo, 200 horsepower, four cylinder starting at $27,990 and a 3.2 liter, 250 horsepower version of Volkswagen’s narrow angle V6 starting at $36,850.

In addition to the innovative CSC (coupe-sunroof-convertible) roof, the Eos includes high-quality standard features such as Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP), safety-optimized front headrests, front airbags and specially developed front side head-thorax airbags; 16-inch alloy wheels (17-inch standard on the V6 model), air conditioning system, fog lights, panoramic sunroof, power windows, and cruise control.

The dimensions of the Eos enhance the vehicle's dynamics. Together with its length and height, the vehicle's width gives the Eos a particularly powerful appearance and contributes to the car’s extraordinarily agile and safe handling characteristics. Its leading-edge roof engineering includes multi-folding components with fully automatic operation. The result is pure driving enjoyment regardless of whether the roof is up or down.

The Eos is available with an even more impressive lineup of options, including a double clutch (DSG™) six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic®, automatic headlights, dual-zone Climatronic™ climate control, 12-way power driver seat, heated front seats and washer nozzles, windblocker, center armrest, trip computer, and leather wrapped steering wheel, brake handle, and shift knob for $31,065.

A further upgrade to the 3.2 liter, 250 horsepower V6 engine with added wood trim, 17-inch all-season tires, multi-function steering wheel, HomeLink®, rain sensing wipers and satellite radio is available at $36,850.

Additional options include a Dynaudio® premium sound system with ten-channel amplifier, ten loudspeakers and 600-watt output power, bi-Xenon headlights with dynamic and static cornering lights, DVD navigation system, park distance control and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Like all new Volkswagen models, the Eos comes with 24-hour Roadside Assistance for four years with unlimited mileage, and new vehicle warranties including:
  • Five-year/60,000 mile (whichever occurs first) Powertrain Limited Warranty.
  • Four-year/50,000 mile (whichever occurs first) New Vehicle Limited Warranty with wear and tear items and adjustments excluded after the initial 12 months/12,000 miles.
  • 12-year unlimited distance Limited Warranty against corrosion perforation.
