The Volkswagen Eos is a four-seat, two-door convertible. Its retractable hardtop design combines the open-air experience of a traditional ragtop with the security and all-season comfort of a coupe’s fixed roof. According to Greek mythology, Eos was the goddess of the sunrise, and it’s an appropriate name for this smart-looking convertible.
As a new model, the Eos’ price can seem hard to justify, as it’s typically higher than other mainstream convertibles. But the Eos does come with a lot of standard equipment, its hardtop design and a high-quality interior. Used models will be somewhat hard to find, and you’ll want to pay extra attention to model years, as VW has altered content over the years in hopes of broadening the Eos’ appeal.
