Individuality direct from the factory – a contradiction? No, at least not at Volkswagen. Firstly, Europe’s largest car maker offers almost countless possibilities to configure its new cars via the range of equipment options for its models. Secondly, there are Volkswagen Individual models –namely the Golf Individual, the Passat Individual, the Passat Variant Individual, the new Eos Individual and the Touareg Individual.
Its unique roof concept turns the Eos into a convertible for 365 days of the year. The most exclusive way to drive an Eos is offered by the Volkswagen Individual program. In fact direct from the factory. The range of individualization options attains a level that is usually offered only by luxury brands such as Bentley. The exterior signs of the Eos Individual are 18-inch alloy wheels. The customer can choose from the “Veracruz”, “Chicago” and “Samarkand” wheel types.
The seats of the Eos Individual are upholstered in dual tone Nappa leather. A contrast to the base color "Black" – which was also selected for the entire trim – is the center strips in "Corn Silk Beige" and the light colored piping. The sport leather steering wheel as well as the gearshift sleeve and parking brake lever are adorned with light, decorative seams. The outside edges of the textile floor mats are also kept in "Corn Silk Beige". A visual highlight is set by the décor inlays covered in black piano lacquer.
Six exclusive body colors are available for the Eos Individual: the “Silver Essence”, “Wheat Beige” and “Midnight Blue” metallic shades, the “Deep Black” and “Island Gray“ pearl effect paint as well as the especially sporty alternative “Red Pepper”.
The spectrum of engines ranges from the Turbodiesel 2.0 TDI (103 kW/140 hp) to the 3.2-liter six-cylinder gasoline-powered engine with an impressive 184 kW/250 hp and DSG direct shift gearbox as part of standard equipment.
