Under the Hood
The Volkswagen Eos is powered by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine rated at 200 horsepower and mated with a 6-speed manual transmission.

Fuel Economy
EPA fuel-economy figures for the 2012 Volkswagen Eos are 22/30/25 mpg (city/highway/combined).

Standard safety features on the Volkswagen Eos include traction and stability control, pop-up rollover bars, and front-seat side air bags that provide head protection.

To date, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has not tested the 2012 Volkswagen Eos. In tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Eos received \"Good\" ratings--the Institute's highest--for frontal-offset, side-impact, and rear-crash protection; however, the IIHS did not test the model for roof strength.
