The Volkswagen Eos is pitched somewhere between mainstream rivals and prestige-badged competition from Volvo and Audi. This makes the Eos look pricey against VW's more usual counterparts, but the Eos has the image to carry it off, and this is reflected in strong resale values. Insurance is pricier than for some rivals, but fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures are respectable, especially for the diesel.
Volkswagen EOS Coupe quality & reliability
Eos owners are unlikely to complain about the quality of the construction, which feels solid and crafted. Overall, it’s classy, too, although a few of the panels are a bit hard and scratchy. The Eos uses the tried and tested components that give VW a decent reputation for mechanical reliability, but some owners have reported problems with the folding roof mechanism.
Volkswagen EOS Coupe safety & security
VW's side airbags act like curtain airbags in the event of a side collision, but there is no airbag protection for rear-seat passengers. ISOFIX child seat mountings are fitted front and rear. All Eos models come with stability control as standard, while roll hoops spring up from behind the rear headrests if the car senses it might tip over. With the roof raised, the Eos is as secure as a hatchback.
