2016 Volkswagen Eos Glendale CA
The convertible has long been a symbol of prestige on the road, representing both freedom and comfort, and maybe just a touch of “form-over-function.” Driving a convertible doesn’t have to be an impractical choice made by those who love the feel of wind in their hair, as the 2016 Volkswagen Eos in Glendale CA offers comfort in all weather. When the sun is shining and you want to feel its heat on your skin, the top lowers in just 25 seconds, while a sunroof gives extra style and the top keeps in heat.
There are almost too many benefits to count with the Eos. Its style alone is an obvious attention grabber, as the color-matched hardtop with built-in sunroof brings every convenience to owners. This two-door model is capable of going from a sophisticated coupe to a sporty convertible in just 25 seconds, effortlessly flaunting two different styles. It isn’t all looks and no function either, with the Eos offering a potent powertrain and four-wheel drive to make it a practical model that’s fun to drive.
If there is such a thing as a non-luxury convertible, we haven’t heard of it. The Eos was designed for drivers seeking premium features in a sophisticated car. Standard features include dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, built-in navigation, V-Tex leatherette and a hardtop with built-in sunroof.
The Eos comes with just one engine, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder TSI that delivers 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque, providing excellent acceleration to the two-door convertible. Paired with the engine is a six-speed DSG manual, which offers silky smooth shifting thanks to its two clutches.
Like most hardtop convertibles, the top of the Eos folds down into the trunk. With the top up, the trunk space sits at 10.5 cubic feet of cargo space, which decreases to 6.6 cubic feet with the top down. There is also a pass-through from the trunk which is lockable and can be opened for longer cargo items.
Let the top down in a 2016 Volkswagen Eos
Though the 2016 Volkswagen Eos does have much to offer to drivers, one of its biggest competitors is found within the lineup: the Beetle Convertible. With such stiff competition coming from an iconic model, it only makes sense VW enthusiasts have been torn. This year the Eos is taking its hat out of the ring, so those interested in seeing all it has to offer have a short time to take a test drive. Production ends in November, with a limited number of vehicles being produced. Fortunately, this last model year is going out gracefully, with an excellent starting MSRP that fall far below the pricing of last year. More than $4,000 has been skimmed off the price, with the model starting off at just $31,995.
The standard features for the 2016 Volkswagen Eos haven’t changed from last year, though only the Komfort trim level is now available. Standard in this trim is dual-zone climate control, V-Tex leatherette upholstery, Tiptronic and Sport driving modes, heated front washer nozzles, heated front seats and a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The 2016 VW Eos will be available in limited quantities, so those interested in purchasing one should contact our friendly staff members here at New Century Volkswagen to learn more about how to get one before stock runs out.
