2008 Volkswagen Eos Overview

If Volkswagen means "people's car" in German, the foreign carmaker better known for wagons and sedans hopes droptop fans will crown the '08 Eos the People's Champ. This model differs from your typical convertible when it comes to overall design. Perhaps it's appropriate that with a model named after the goddess of the dawn, you can keep the top up and still feel the sun shining down on you with a panoramic glass sunroof.

Volkswagen offers the Eos in four trims and adds a little extra to each one in its second year of production. The Turbo gets optional heated seats, the Komfort and Lux each get 17-inch alloy wheels, and the VR6 gets 18-inch wheels and some fresh flourishes on the grille. All four trims get a little extra leather in the interior.

The Turbo, Komfort, and Lux each have a turbocharged 2.0-liter, 200-horsepower inline-four engine, while the VR6 features a 3.2-liter, 250-hp V6. Gas mileage averages out to around 20 mpg in the city and 27-28 on the highway. Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph takes around 7.3 seconds. The Turbo and Komfort offer an optional six-speed manual transmission or standard six-speed manual, while the Lux and VR6 are available exclusively with the standard six-speed automatic. Like most coupe convertibles, all Eos trims have two doors and seat four.

Overall, the '08 Eos gets a lot of love from its drivers. The hard top provides more safety than a typical convertible, and the sunroof offers a nice view. Of course, owners enjoy putting the top down and taking full advantage of the Eosâ??s smooth handling. Surprisingly, they also like the turbocharged inline fourâ??s power, although some say upgrading to a V6 in future model years wouldn't hurt. Some drivers suggest the '08 Eos could use a little more space in the trunk and interior and note that the carâ??s price can rise quickly with options. Regardless, most drivers don't have much to complain about when it comes to their 2008 Volkswagen Eos, and they don't think you will, either.
