New Hard Top Convertible Named to ROAD & TRAVEL Magazine’s Top Ten Sexy Cars List

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Volkswagen of America, Inc. has announced that ROAD & TRAVEL Magazine has named the Eos convertible one of the top 10 sexiest cars for 2007.

In the 11th annual Sexy Car Buyer’s Guide, ROAD & TRAVEL Magazine (RTM) cites the Eos, with its coupe-sunroof-convertible (CSC)TM and price under $30,000, as “the best of all worlds. A road runner with simple, elegant lines [and] just enough trim in the right places.” Open top motoring, combined with the powerful 2.0T, 200 horsepower four-cylinder engine or a 3.6 L 250 hp V6 engine mated to the dual-clutch, DSG® six-speed transmission makes the Eos an exciting vehicle and fun to drive.

“We’re very proud of the Eos and the recent accolades it has received from the automotive industry, including a strong showing in the J.D. Power APEAL study and now from ROAD & TRAVEL Magazine,” said Susan Kelke, North American launch and model manager. “It has become a strong halo vehicle for Volkswagen, representing the best of German engineering and styling and a fun-to-drive quotient for consumers.”

“The July ‘Romance Issue’ (www.roadandtravel.com) provides a full review of the top ten vehicles and what makes each specific automobile sizzle and satisfy,” said Courtney Caldwell, editor-in-chief, ROAD & TRAVEL Magazine. “Test driven by RTM editors, these revved-up roadsters are sure to leave drivers (and readers) reeling and writhing for more.”

Primarily geared towards women, RTM was the first publication to specifically address women’s automotive needs and concerns, providing a resource from which they could make informed decisions regarding purchases and personal safety.
