Volkswagen Eos extensively enhanced
Orders now being taken
Wolfsburg, 7th October 2010. In the 10th month of the year, Volkswagen is
already holding its 13th model premiere: the highly successful Eos open-
top coupé has been given an updated design and further enhanced with
numerous new features.
Clearly structured and horizontally contoured, the appearance of the new
Eos follows the code of the Volkswagen design DNA. Extending now
between the new headlights is a radiator grille consisting of three shiny
black struts. From behind the Eos stands out through its reworked, two-
part LED rear lights and redesigned rear bumper with diffuser.
In technical terms, numerous new details set the 2011 Eos apart. These
include the ‘Premium’ multi-function instrument panel with colour display,
the Light Assist main beam management system and second generation
Park Assist. Also new on the Eos is the Keyless Access system, which as
a new feature also opens and closes the roof by wireless remote control.
The special Light Assist system takes over the function of switching
between dipped and main beam, automatically adapting this to the traffic
situation. ‘Cool leather’, available as an option, gives a pleasant feel to the
cars’ seats even in hot weather. It reflects the sun’s rays and thus heats
up much less than standard leather.
Through the use of BlueMotion Technology fuel consumption has been
further reduced. On the Eos 2.0 TDI 103 kW / 140 PS, for instance, the
Stop/Start system and brake energy recovery bring consumption down by
0.7 litres to now just 4.8 l/100 km. The new Eos will be unveiled to the
public for the first time on 17th November at the Los Angeles Auto Show,
with the European launch following from mid-January 2011. Offered with a
range of four turbo-charged, direct injection engines (90 kW / 122 PS to
155 kW / 210 PS), the Eos will have a base price in Germany of €27,975.
