Primary changes for the 2009 Volkswagen Eos convertible are that the V6 engine has been dropped, and a new RNS Midline navigation system is now available. Volkswagen Eos standard features include a power retractable hardtop with integrated power sunroof activated by the push of a button. As a front-wheel-drive, two-door convertible with seating for four, the VW Eos is powered by a 2.0L four-cylinder turbocharged engine, discharging 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. The Komfort trim level provides a choice of a six-speed manual transmission or VW's six-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) automated-clutch manual transmission, while the DSG is mandatory on the Lux trim level. EPA fuel economy ratings for the Eos with DSG are 21 mpg city/29 mpg hwy and 24 mpg in combined driving, and the manual transmission gets one more mpg for highway driving. Standard safety features include antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, and a full complement of airbags.
