2007 Volkswagen Eos Owners Manual – Featuring its retractable hardtop and ideal drivetrains, the new Eos convertible is a delightful addition to the Volkswagen lineup and also to the marketplace as an entire.
VW has a habit of delivering convertible models in the drop (if twice can make it a routine). The last time was the Beetle Convertible, a smooth-best. This time it’s a little more suitable due to the fact the Eos’ retractable hardtop causes it to be much more practical as a several-period car.
VW demands this convertible. Correct, it provides one, but let us face it: A lot of men are as comfy driving a Beetle as they are holding their wife’s purse.
Besides a collection of Canon video cameras, Eos is also the goddess of dawn in Ancient greek mythology – child of Hyperion and Theia. This getting a convertible, it could be a lot more relevant that she’s the middle sister of Helios and Selene (the sunshine and moon). In “The Iliad” and “The Odyssey,” Homer identifies Eos as “rosy-fingered” and “saffron-robed.” I identify Eos as a Rabbit with the leading lopped away from.
Actually, it’s not lopped off, it is sectioned and articulated to keep in the trunk area; you would only know it is not a fixed-roof structure coupe if you received near and searched carefully, or seen it dealing with its 25-2nd transformation. Even though it gives its platform with the Rabbit, the Eos has the Jetta’s plunging chrome grille, combined with a lot more intriguing, scalloped front lights.
Like the majority of retracting tops, the Eos’ is interesting to look at. One shortcoming is that its trunk lid when opening to just accept the folded away best, pivots backward further than I have seen on such a car – a few toes from the body contributing to a foot over and above the bumper. You may bash another car as well as another hurdle if you never keep sufficient room (see photo), and I also never think the warning on the tool board is enough to prevent it.
