The 2014 Volkswagen Eos convertible tosses the Lux trim, reducing the line up to just the Komfort, Sport and Executive models. VW's Car-Net telematics provides a myriad of services including automatic crash notification, remote vehicle access via smartphone app, and stolen-vehicle location.
The 2013 Volkswagen Eos convertible gains a new Sport trim that includes all the features found in the Komfort trim and adds 18-inch wheels, a lowered sport suspension, a rear spoiler, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifter and adaptive bi-xenon headlights.
As both coupe and convertible, the 2015 Volkswagen Eos is essentially two cars in one. This compact VW's dual personality comes thanks to a retractable hardtop. With roof in place, the Eos looks like a 2-door coupe. Press a button, and the roof retracts to transform the car into a sun-seeking convertible. The Eos isn't the only 4-passenger hardtop convertible, but it is the least expensive. Starting under $37,000, the VW Eos isn't exactly cheap but is still thousands less than the Lexus IS C and Infiniti Q60 Convertible. In addition to more premium amenities, those luxury rivals pack a V6, but the Eos' turbocharged 4-cylinder offers plenty of zip. If all this sounds appealing, act soon: 2015 is the final year for the VW Eos.
