2012 Volkswagen Eos: Introduction
When Volkswagen set about replacing the Golf Cabriolet in the mid-2000's, the company elected to break with tradition and offer a unique model based on a somewhat larger, and more comfortable platform. The Volkswagen Eos took VW's affordable convertible concept up-market, introducing a retractable steel roof and improving interior room to give it true four-passenger capability. It also became something of a novelty on the market thanks to its premium positioning and affordable pricing.
The 2012 Volkswagen Eos represents the first refresh of the drop-top since it was first introduced in 2006, and while the changes have been largely cosmetic, they are a welcome update to the compact car.
