What Car? says
For Desirable image, great to drive, four seats and a folding metal roof - what's not to like about the Volkswagen Eos?
Against The Eos has been blighted by issues with the roof, including leaks, squeaks and rattles.
Verdict A coupe convertible that lets you have your cake and eat it. Good for both posing and driving.
Go for… 2.0 TFSI
Avoid… 3.2 V6 FSI
- 1. With its folding metal roof up it's refined and airy, thanks to the built-in glass sunroof, you can go alfresco with style at the push of a button.
- 2. The S trim is broadly the same as the old standard trim, while the SE gains goodies such as parking sensors and a heated rear screen, and upgraded cabin trim.
- 3. The 2.0-litre diesel is the most economical with an official average of 47.1mpg. The next best is the 120 and 158bhp 1.4-litre TFSI model at 42.2mpg.
- 4. Road tax rates aren't too bad, with the diesel emitting 158g/km of CO2 and the 1.4-litre petrols 159g/km. The other models range from 194g/km to 219g/km.
- 5. Water leaks are the most common complaint, mostly involving water penetrating into the boot and footwells.
