Introduction
The Volkswagen Eos (Eee-ohs) is a compact 4-passenger convertible model with a power-retractable hardtop that also includes a power panoramic glass sunroof. When the Eos first debuted, it was a Golf-based replacement for the Volkswagen Cabrio, itself a Golf-derived model that had replaced the original Rabbit-based Volkswagen Cabriolet. Now nearly a decade old, the Eos enters its final year of production. The Eos competes against compact sporty models such as the Mini Cooper/Coupe, Subaru BRZ, Hyundai Veloster, Mazda MX-5 Miata, Mitsubishi Lancer, and the Scion FR-S and tC.

Models and Features
For 2015, the Eos is sold in Komfort, Final Edition, and Executive trim levels.

The Eos Final Edition is new this year, based on the previous Sport trim level and equipped with a sport suspension, transmission paddle shifters, unique 18-in. aluminum wheels, black outside mirrors, rear spoiler, and bi-xenon headlights with LED running lights and an adaptive front-lighting system that helps the driver to see around dark corners at night. Inside, the Eos Final Edition is equipped with a beige-and-black interior with leather upholstery and contrast stitching, net-pattern silver trim, and keyless access with push-button engine starting. A reversing camera and rain-sensing wipers are also standard for this version of the Eos.

The Eos Executive has a unique wheel design, plus power-folding mirrors with accent lighting and park-assist sensors. Inside, wood trim decorates the cabin and the front passenger enjoys a power-adjustable seat. Additional upgrades include an auto-dimming rearview mirror, premium 10-speaker audio system, and a navigation system.

Under the Hood
A turbocharged, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine is standard for every 2015 VW Eos, generating 200 horsepower and 207 lb.-ft. of torque. A 6-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) automated manual transmission is standard equipment, driving the car's front wheels.

Fuel Economy
According to the EPA, the 2015 Eos is rated to return 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway (25 mpg combined).

Safety and Technology
Volkswagen's Car-Net technology is standard on the 2015 Eos and includes a free subscription to services for a limited time following purchase. Thereafter, the owner must pay a subscription fee.

Key features of Car-Net include one-touch emergency 9-1-1 calling and an automatic crash-notification system that activates if the car's air bags deploy, automatically contacting emergency rescue personnel and directing them to the scene of the accident. Car-Net also includes Family Guardian service, which allows the owner to program specific speed and boundary limits--particularly useful for new or teen drivers. If the Eos travels too fast or too far, a text message is sent to the owner's smartphone. Additionally, Car-Net provides a Last Parked Location feature, helping the owner to find the car in a crowded parking lot.

One of this car's key differentiators is its power-retractable hardtop. Raised, it makes the Eos a 4-season coupe. Lowered, it provides wind-in-the-hair driving for four adults. The roof drops into the trunk in about 25 seconds, according to Volkswagen, and uses less than 4 cu. ft. of space when its various panels are stacked and stowed. Additionally, the roof offers a panoramic glass sunroof that vents and opens, making the Eos unique among models with this type of roof design.
