With an innovative retractable hardtop, premium interior, impressive tech features and efficient engine performance, the 2016 Volkswagen Eos in Orange County CA is an excellent choice for drop-top sun-seekers. The Eos is a very unique vehicle, for it’s the only hardtop convertible in North America that also offers a built-in, full-width, power-tilt-and-slide, panoramic glass sunroof. Making the Eos even more attractive, it comes with a price reduction of over $4,000, which makes it an affordable alternative to convertibles from European luxury automakers. This is the last year of production for the Volkswagen Eos, so if you'd like to get behind the wheel of one while its still available, then we encourage you to get in touch with us a Capistrano Volkswagen.
The Volkswagen Eos' folding hardtop is electro-hydraulically-operated and features a five-piece steel and glass roof. In the 25 seconds it takes for the top to lower, the five elements stack neatly and elegantly on top of each other so as to take up minimal space inside the trunk. The mechanism itself is activated from the front seat by a press-and-hold lever beneath the center armrest. Thanks to the way the mechanism operates, the roof can be opened or closed in most garages. Just simply press a switch inside the Eos, and the sunroof section slides backwards and the side windows are lowered. The sunroof and the rear part of the roof are completely lowered into the rear of the car, while the roof spars slide into separate cavities near the rear side window.
The feature that makes the 2016 Eos stand apart from other hardtop convertible is its sliding glass sunroof. At the touch of a button it can be tilted and partly or fully opened. There’s also an integrated, manual sliding sunshade to help reduce sunlight glare, as well as a section behind the sunroof that’s made of matching tinted glass, giving the visual impression that the Eos’s entire roof is made from glass.
The 2016 Eos features a 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC turbocharged and intercooled four-cylinder TSI gasoline engine. This advanced, technically-sophisticated, direct fuel-injection powertrain delivers 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque, features drive-by-wire throttle control and maintenance-free hydraulic lifters and gets a fuel economy of 30 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg in city driving.
Safety in the 2016 Eos starts with a strong, rigid laser-seam-welded bodyshell, crash-optimized, energy-absorbing front end and heat-formed steel center B-pillars. The driver and front-seat passenger are protected by front and side-thorax airbags, while Side Curtain Protection head airbags help protect those in the front and rear seats, in addition to safety belt pretensioners.
