A trully sensational looking car built with German engineering. I love the look and feel of driving a convertible that does not have a top that makes noise! My husband likes the engineering and all the other features that put a capital S in Special.
This car is a real pleasure to drive with the top up or down. People always look and ask what is it. Volkswagen has developed a car that customers will come back for.
Great car for the price!

When I was looking for a new convertible, I test drove the Eos, a few BMWs, a Mustang, a Miata and a few othes. I ended up with the Eos due to the hard top, the back seat, and the features it came with.
The hard top goes up and down with the push of a button. It's neat to watch everything working together when it's moving. It's fast, too, only about 30 seconds to get it completely open or closed. It's rained several times since I bought it and I can't tell that there are any leaks anywhere, which was a concern about the convertible top.
There's plenty of leg room in the car, both in the front seat and back seat. My taller friends can sit in the back fairly comfortably without the front seat being pushed all the way to the front. There's also a surprising amount of storage space in the trunk when the top is down. I had assumed you couldn't keep anything in the trunk when the top was down, but I was mistaken. There's a cover that goes down in the trunk and as long as everything's underneath it, the top can open.
Tons of features in the base model of the car. Heated seats, iPod adapter, aux input and others. The 2.0L Turbo engine also offers plenty of power for driving and passing. The engine, I thought, was better than the engine in the Mustang.
All in all, this has been a great car so far. No issues and a blast to drive! I'm glad I live in the South cause I've been able to put my top down several times during the winter!

Great car. Have driven sport cars most of my life. Mostly two seaters. Though this is a two plus two with very little room for anyone in the rear seats it is still a great car as long as you don't plan on having any passengers in the back seats. Lots of power and torgue. Handles well, with plenty of luxury features one would only expect in much more expensive cars. The dual roofs (sun roof and convertible hard top) are definitely a bonus! Only regret - it took me so long to discover this car. Unfortunately this will be the last year VW will manufacture this vehicle. So sad (sniffle, sniffle, sniffle)!
