The Eos has won an extraordinary readers’ vote: for the first time, women could vote for their favourite car at the web site evecars.com, a British internet page conceived for women. The eight-member jury comprising editors and experts in technology and automotive sports saw the Eos as the clear winner in the final elimination involving 27 models.
Alexandra Jenner-Fust, editor of evecars.com explains, "The girls (and guy) on our judging panel were looking for a car that excelled in its own category, but our winner had to have wider appeal. With the Eos, Volkswagen has created a car that you can buy both because you love it, and because it makes perfect sense. It’s a convertible without the potential weakness of a cloth roof, is practical for four and is very attractive. With its sporty chassis, you would like to drive it every day."
The internet site Evecars.com was created in cooperation with the British automotive magazine What Car?. A broad range of topics including driving tests for new-car purchases, tips on buying or selling used cars as well as insurance matters are explained to women on the extensive web site.
