Volkswagen Eos 2.0 TDI BlueMotion

Diesel convertibles remain a bit of a compromise but the Volkswagen Eos 2.0 TDI is one of the best. While not quick it has ample performance is remains quiet and composed at low speeds as week as when cruising. It is a genuinely practical convertible and with the roof up could easily be mistaken for fixed head coupe both in looks and ride quality.

VW make every effort to stress that the Eos is far from a Golf Convertible. The car was designed as a completely new model and although it does share some parts with the Golf, the design has a individuality of its own. It’s more expensive than others in its class but then its design, build and equipment levels do well to justify that. The roof is a particularly sophisticated 5 piece folding hardtop with an integrated sliding glass sunroof to give you an additional option. The VW Eos fills the gap between premium convertibles and those from the mass market. The 3.6 litre V6 and DSG gearbox added a dose of excitement but was dropped in 2010 when the Eos was quietly updated with better trim and equipment.

    I’ve had one for one month,LOVE IT! great to drive, love the economy, the roof down experience is what I’ve dreamed about for forty years, brilliant. The big plus; the 2.0l diesel Blue Motion toes my 1.5 ton touring caravan effortlessly and returns 30mpg.
