Volkswagen Eos Will Go Out Of Production In May

Volkswagen Eos Will Go Out Of Production In May

If you’re looking to buy a new Volkswagen Eos convertible, you better act fast. The German automaker has already confirmed that the 2015 model year would be the end of the road for the drop-top, but German automotive news site Automobilwoche is now reporting that production of the car will cease in May.

The writing has been on the wall since last year, when Volkswagen announced the 2015 Volkswagen Eos Final Edition, but this new report gives a specific date that the final Eos will roll off the car’s Portugal assembly plant. There is still some time to order a new Eos, as the report adds that customers can continue to order the car until March 27.

According to the article, one of the reasons for the Eos’ demise is the fact that convertible preference among European customers has switched to favor soft-top offerings in recent years. It also doesn’t help that the Eos has essentially gone its entire nine-year lifecycle with few changes outside of a relatively light refresh for the 2012 model year. Still, that hasn’t stopped the Eos from moving some decent global volume as Automobilwoche also reports that since the Eos was introduced for 2006, it has sold about 230,000 units.

2015 Volkswagen Eos Final Edition

2015 Volkswagen Eos Final Edition

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.

2014 Volkswagen Eos

2014 Volkswagen Eos

If there was ever a car in Volkswagen’s lineup that probably has nine lives, it’s probably the Eos. Talks of discontinuing the model have risen to the surface numerous times and yet, here it is, alive and kicking in 2014.

The 2014 Volkswagen Eos continues on in its slot as Volkswagen’s resident entry-level convertible. Not much has changed since the current generation model arrived in 2011 and in some ways, that can be attributed as a positive for the Eos.

See, over the course of its time, the convertible has been offered with some impressive features, including a hardtop roof, comfortable seating, and yes, the option to do away with a ceiling and let your hair enjoy the cool breeze of Mother Nature.

Even its turbocharge engine can be attributed as a boon for the Eos because at the end of the day, riding a convertible is only as good as the power it has under its hood.

So welcome to 2014, Volkswagen Eos. You’ve certainly earned your stay at the party.

Volkswagen to Discontinue the Eos

People that are disgusted with the VW Beetle Cabrio, but still want to enjoy open-top freedom with a VW badge on it, will sadly be stuck with the Bug as the only option. So what in the world is VW doing with its peppy VW Eos, you may ask?

Well, in recent studies held by the VW design team, VW concluded that that the market has lost sight of the retractable hardtop vehicles, and are looking for better and cheaper options. The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class and the BMW Z4 obviously think otherwise.

So, according to Bischoff, there will be no VW Eos in production from next year ownward, bringing misery to the Eos fans-not that we know of.

On the bright side, Klaus Bischoff, VW head of design, said that there will be a larger four-seat, two-door convertible with a soft-top, which is obviously something to compete with the upcoming BMW 4-Series Convertible. However, this will be far less costly than the outgoing EOS, but it will also be more luxury appointed than its predecessor.

Expect to see thislarger drop-top sometime in 2014, as VW unveils its new range of vehicles following its new “top-down” design format.

This is all that we have for you but we’ll keep a close eye once details emerge.

2010 Volkswagen Eos Exclusive

2010 Volkswagen Eos Exclusive

Last year, Volkswagen brought out a black and white schemed White Night package for the Volkswagen Eos that focused more on the aesthetics of the vehicle as opposed to the actual operation. This year, Volkswagen did more of the same by unveiling the Exclusive Package for the Eos convertible. The new Exclusive Package will be available in Europe for all the engine variants and will go on sale for prices starting at 34,350€.

The new Eos Exclusive will be distinguished by chrome radiator grille ribs and a "Volkswagen Exclusive" badge. The vehicle is dropped 15mm thanks to the sports suspension and is finished off with a set of 18-inch alloy wheels and "Samarkand" and "Veracruz" both in sterling silver finish.

On the interior it will get a two-tone sports seat system covered in nappa leather. The black is contrasted with the customer’s choice of either cinnamon or corn silk beige in the center sections and side panels.

This package doesn’t add much to the Volkswagen Eos, but then again, the car doesn’t need much added. The Eos is a nice looking car with just enough of a luxury look to it to make anyone feel comfortable and stylish while cruising around in this convertible.

New facelift 2011 VW Eos rendered

New facelift 2011 VW Eos rendered

We already knew that the Volkswagen Eos was going to be getting GTI power, but now it looks like the people’s automaker could be upgrading the bubbly hard top convertible’s looks along the lines of the New Compact Coupe.

When VW introduced the Eos, named after the mythological Greek goddess of dawn and wind, back in 2006 the German design team was looking for a replacement for the fun loving Golf based drop top Cabrio. So when the new Eos first debuted as the Concept C it was given a friendly face filled with warm round features to continue what the former cabriolet had started. This rendering takes the unique retractable hard top Volkswagen in an all new aggressive direction inspired by the Compact Coupe and the sixth generation GTI.

When VW introduces a new convertible, it traditionally consists of a new front clip, from the front fenders forward, being grafted onto the existing model featuring updated lighting and a few new design cues. While this rendering follows the cost effective production convertible trend, it also adds a few touches from its luxury car cousins at Audi. So aside from the sleek LED headlamps framed by a pair of sharp points that continued the edges of the hood extending down on either side of the grill, larger openings in the front bumper and pronounced lip spoiler; this updated Eos incorporates the four ring automaker’s tornado line running along the car’s belt line as well as a set of slick triple spoke rollers.

A pretty impressive feature for the Eos is that it only takes 25 seconds for the hardtop convertible to be completely and automatically lowered. In either manual or automatic version the car will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 7,4 seconds, while top speed is limited to 130 mph.

Volkswagen will equip the Scirocco and Eos with GTI power

Volkswagen will equip the Scirocco and Eos with GTI power

The German automaker Volkswagen stuck a chord with long time enthusiasts when they brought back the classic Scirocco sports coupe, and it is no wonder because the car features a sleeker shape than the hot hatch GTI and an even sportier front end. The only thing that the GTI has on the new Scirocco is its wonderful 2.0 Liter turbocharged four cylinder engine. However that is going to change soon because VW is going to equip both the new Scirocco and Eos with the same 210 HP TSI power plant that will bring the Sky Rocket’s 0 to 60 MPH sprint down to just 6.9 seconds, however we aren’t sure if it will make the new Scirocco get to the U.S. any faster.

Aerodynamic package for the Volkswagen Eos

Aerodynamic package for the Volkswagen Eos

The German car maker Volkswagen is adding a bit of spice to their hard top convertible, Eos, with a new sports inspired aerodynamic package. As part of the upgrade, the Eos will receive a new front fascia, a rear spoiler and a pair of side skirts that make the Eos look like it has been sucked to the ground.

The new front bumper gives the impression of a powerful front end that at the same time reduces lift on the front axle and allows the Eos to move through the air that much more efficiently. The side skirts add both style and function to the long edges of the vehicle, while the subtle new rear wing accentuates the sporty attitude of the Eos and also improves the vehicle’s handling.

Although the power plant under the hood goes untouched, the restyled Eos looks like it is going 100 MPH standing still.

Volkwagen Eos by B&B

Volkwagen Eos by B&B

The Volkswagen Eos has a little bit of a bad reputation in the U.S. It’s cute looks, 2.0-liter 200 hp engine, and extra weight from the folding hardtop ensures the fanboys stay away in droves.

In Europe its different. The Eos can be had with a 3.2-liter V6 making 250 hp. Since this engine is off the VW parts bin shelf, its also shared with other cars like the Audi A4. This means there are plenty of tuners that already have parts ready to spice up the Eos. So tuners like B&B can put real wind in your (European) hair.

With modifications that mainly include turbochargers, B&B can upgrade the engine to 360, 400, 450, and 500 hp. The highest level of this modification can propel the Eos from 0-100kph (62mph) in 4.2 seconds all the way up to its top speed of 308km/h (192mph).
