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.
The 2016 Eos is built for comfort, with a plethora of premium features and the capability to easily carry four adults. It's equipped with a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel and shift knob, in addition to standard dual-zone Climatronic climate control system. From the sporty, side-bolstered front seats with standard 12-way power adjustment for the driver (eight-way manual adjustment for the front passenger), to the supportive individual rear seats, the Eos is exceptionally comfortable and accommodating. For entertainment, Eos comes standard with RNS 315 Navigation system with a five-inch color touchscreen, SD memory card reader, Bluetooth connectivity and the next generation of Volkswagen’s Car-Net connected vehicle services platform, including “Security & Service” and “Guide & Inform.”
The Volkswagen Eos Final Edition and Executive trims are discontinued for 2016, and the remaining Komfort model will have a limited run. With such a small number of 2016 Eos models produced, they won't be available for long, so if you'd like to experience an the quality, comfort and innovation of the Eos, then we encourage you to get in touch with us at Capistrano Volkswagen.
