from Hanles VW, Napa, CA
Year / Model Reviewed:
2011 VW Eos Lux 2012
Handling is good, sporty but not too stiffly sprung.
Power is excellent with no turbo lag.
Finish & interior materials very nice.
It is a driver's car, with good road manners.
The top's great, much nicer than the usual fabric top (such as that on the Audi A5.
The sunroof feature is genius!
Compact, and easy to park.
Decent leg room in back seat.
Price is low, compared to competition (Volvo, Saab, BMW).
Small trunk, but expected with hardtop.
The Eos is a bargain in the hardtop convertible market. It is a great driver's car, with a quality that is easily seen and felt. I recommend it highly.
Similar Products Used:
Prior cars were 2004 MINI Cooper S and a 2008 Toyota Solara convertible. The MINI was great, but had a very hard suspension, to the point of being uncomfortable. The Toyota had a great boulevard type suspension, perhaps being too soft. In my opinion, the Eos is a nice compromise between the MINI and the Solara.
