The Volkswagen Eos was a sport compact cabriolet coupé produced by the German automaker Volkswagen from 2006 to 2015.

Volkswagen Eos Overview
The Volkswagen Eos is a 2-door convertible that was produced by Volkswagen from 2006 to 2015. It was based on the Volkswagen Golf platform, but it had a unique retractable hardtop roof. The Eos was powered by a variety of engines, including a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine, and a 3.2-liter VR6 engine. It was available with a choice of manual or automatic transmissions.
The Eos was available in two trim levels: Trendline and Sport. The Trendline trim came standard with features like a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth, and a rearview camera. The Sport trim added features like an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a JBL sound system, and a sport-tuned suspension. The Eos was a good choice for those looking for a stylish and practical convertible. It was also a good choice for those who wanted a convertible with good fuel economy.
Production of the Eos ceased in 2015, and it wasn’t directly replaced in Volkswagen’s lineup. The market for convertibles, especially in certain regions, had shrunk, leading many automakers to reconsider their offerings in this segment. The Eos was somewhat unique in the market, given its combination of a hardtop and sunroof. It filled a niche for those wanting the security and insulation of a hardtop with the open-air experience of a convertible. While it received praise for its build quality, comfort, and the innovative roof, some critics pointed out that its price was on the higher side compared to some rivals.
