The Volkswagen Eos is nearing the end of its road, with 2015 marking its final year in production. To commemorate its passing, Volkswagen is introducing a ‘Final Edition’ Eos. The new trim level replaces the drop-top’s Sport trim level and the entire Eos lineup gets some new exterior colors and interior accoutrements.
New for 2015 are ‘Flash Red’ and ‘Pure White’ exterior paint colors. Flash Red comes available only on the Komfort and Executive trims, while Pure White is available across the board.
The Final Edition trim gets all the niceties from the Sport trim it replaces. Vicenza wheels sized at 18 inches, bespoke Cornsilk Beige and black two-tone Vienna leather with contrast stitching in the cabin, along with silver net interior trim. The Final Edition also gets a rearview camera and rain-sensing windshield wipers for added safety.
The Eos has been a slow seller for Volkswagen since its introduction in 2006. The hardtop convertible only moved 4,178 units in 2013 for all of America. Even in its best year, 2008, the Eos only found homes in 12,837 driveways across the U.S.

Introduced in 2006, the Volkswagen Eos came riding on a modified version of the Golf’s platform, but had unique body panels that made the car a stand-alone model. Its obvious main feature was a five-piece hard top that folded neatly into the trunk. The Eos was, and still is, one of the least expensive hardtop convertibles on the market, with a base selling price of $35,595.
The Eos got a refresh in 2012 with an updated grille to match the VW corporate look and a refreshed interior. Powering the Eos is a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder making 200 horsepower. It’s mated to a six-speed DSG gearbox with Tiptronic manual shifting. All told, the Eos carries an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway rating.
Pricing for the 2015 models haven’t been released yet, but for 2014, the Komfort starts at $35,595 while the Sport begins at $38,325. The range-topping Executive trim starts at $42,095.
