Volkswagen Eos Cabriolet dashboard

The Eos is a very easy car to live with because of its comfortable interior and generally relaxed feel. The car makes an excellent motorway cruiser, with both wind and engine noise well suppressed. It's a simple job finding a comfortable driving position and Volkswagen has added the option of a new leather finish that reflects the sun’s rays to prevent it heating up as normal leather would.

The suspension remains composed over all but the largest potholes and the tall windscreen keeps you and your passenger well protected from the elements. The cabin feels sturdy and solid, and Volkswagen has made sure that the general quality of materials used throughout the interior is excellent.

Volkswagen Eos equipment

Prices for the Volkswagen Eos are a little on the high side, with the car costing more than the Renault Megane CC and Peugeot 308 CC, which also have folding metal roofs. It's also more expensive than the recently introduced VW Golf Cabriolet.

The upside of all this is that even the entry-level Sport model comes with a decent list of standard equipment, including 18-inch alloy wheels, DAB digital radio, Bluetooth phone connectivity, air-conditioning, sports seats, rear parking sensors and hill hold.

The diesel model is available in Exclusive trim, which adds to Sport spec a leather multifunction sports steering wheel, two-tone Napa leather, climate control, heated front seats and some upgraded design touches in the cabin.

Volkswagen Eos options

Optional equipment includes bright bi-xenon headlights, touchscreen sat nav, cruise control, parking assistance and a rear-view camera. There are 12 different paint colours to choose from – two are no-cost options, seven are metallic colours at £540, one is a pearl-effect choice at £540 and there’s also a special Oryx White that costs £955.
