For The Volkswagen Eos is enjoyable to drive thanks to the quality of its ride, handling and refinement. It seats four, has a classy, comfortable cabin and will hold its value well.

Against Prices for higher-spec models are high. Folding the roof dramatically reduces the boot space.

Smart-looking, great-driving cabrio with great refinement and build. Expensive, but the Volkswagen Eos is well worth it.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The VW Eos is one of the best folding steel-roofed cabriolets, featuring an electric sunroof built into its retractable roof.

Rival cars from Peugeot and Renault can’t match the Eos’ image or all-round abilities, but while VW has got it right, it doesn’t sell its wares cheap. Top-spec versions are very expensive indeed.

Stick with the cheaper versions – which are anything but short of kit or power – and you can’t really go wrong. Whichever version you choose, residual values will be impressively high; a reflection of the Eos’ class and appeal.
