Volkswagen has unveiled today the first images and official details on the new generation Eos that will make its world debut next month at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Sales in Europe will begin in mid January 2011.

And like all the latest models in the line-up, the new Eos is characterized by the new Volkswagen design DNA. This includes: redesigned headlights incorporating LED daytime running lights, new grille, two-piece LED taillights and the redesigned bumper with a new diffuser.

The list of technologies that comes with the new Eos includes: multi-function display "Premium" with color display, remote light control Light Assist, and the second generation of Park Assist, Keyless locking, Keyless Access and remote light control.

Under the hood Volkswagen will place two turbocharged direct-injection units delivering 122 HP and 210 HP respectively, but also a new 2.0-TDI engine producing 140 HP with regenerative braking and Start Stop technology. This will help the new Eos to offer a fuel consumption of only 4.8-liters of fuel per 100 kilometers.

Oh come on. Don’t be barbaric. Hehe. They still upgraded the car a little. It is still a good thing. I like the fact that the fuel consumption was reduced. I think Volkswagen is just trying the people if they will consider this.

Wow, I think Volkswagen is on a mission to bore people to death. Their line-up grows less exciting by the day. Having owned one, it is just as well- I would rather walk than ever own another one.
