Volkswagen announces UK prices for revised Eos cabriolet

VW has announced the UK prices and specification for the updated version of its popular Eos coupé-cabriolet, which made its official debut at the LA motorshow last week.

Following its debut last week at the Los Angeles Motor Show, the revised VW Eos coupé-cabriolet has opened order books in the UK, with prices starting at £22,895 on the road, with the first models due to arrive in dealerships by early 2011.

Featuring a new look and offering a fresh range of comfort and convenience technologies, the Eos remains the only vehicle of its kind to feature a five piece metal folding hard top complete with an integrated glass sunroof. For the first time, remote roof opening and closing is now also available.

The new model has now been brought into line with the styling direction adopted by the Polo, Golf and Passat, with a new bumper, a horizontal grille, a set of fresh headlights similar to those found on the Golf as well as a new bonnet and front wings.

At the rear new light units and a bumper are joined by revised interior trims and even the option of a new leather finish that reflects the sun’s rays to prevent it heating up as normal leather would.

Powering the Eos is a range of engines catering both for efficiency and performance, whether you're after TSI petrol TDI diesel engines ranging from 120bhp to 207bhp, each equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox or, on selected models, the option of a six-speed DSG gearbox.

There are three different trim levels to choose from, SE, Sport and Exclusive, with prices ranging from £22,895 to £30,320, although that includes the Treasury's new 20 percent VAT rate.
