Eos Comparison

The Volkswagen Eos is a convertible that offers the same solidity as a coupe. It is also the only retractable hardtop with a moonroof! All of this to keep the sun, moon and stars alive – roof open or closed! Yet, it is still a German-engineered Volkswagen with all of the great safety and performance that makes the Eos a worthy buy.

The Eos may be the only retractable roof convertible with a moonroof, but it is not the only convertible in town. To be fair, the Eos was put against two other four-seat retractable roof coupe/convertible to see where it stands – the Lexus IS 250 C and the Infiniti Q60 Convertible.

From these numbers, this comparison might seem unfair. But, it illustrates a few points about the Eos. It is called the lowest priced retractable roof four-seat convertible for a reason. On top of better fuel economy, a larger cargo hold with the roof down and a lighter car overall, it is also the most real fun one could have with both the top up or down.

The German-engineered Eos is on its final days. That innovative coupe/convertible will certainly be missed. But, it is worth a look when you come by our store. After all, there is nothing like driving – and owning – a great top down experience.
