The new 2011 VW Eos which has been given a thorough facelift unveiled at the LA Autoshow. VW thinks that California is the perfect place to reveal this car since America is the best market for the four-seater cabrio and they are planning to launch it into the market as soon as March 2011.

In America, the Eos is only available with a 147 kW / 200 PS 2.0-litre TSI with a 6-speed DSG, but Europeans will get a broader range of powertrains including three direct-injection turbo petrol engines (TSI) and one direct-injection turbodiesel (TDI). Power levels of the efficient TSI engines range from 90 kW / 122 PS to 155 kW / 210 PS, while the quiet common rail TDI develops 103 kW / 140 PS.

The main headlights can be ordered in halogen (H7) or optional bi-xenon format. Within the housings of the bi-xenon headlamps, 14 LEDs form the daytime running light.

The interior of the Eos has new trim on the dashboard and doors, with “Matt Chrome” details applied as standard. The Ambience Pack has also been reconfigured. When this pack is ordered, the Eos’s interior fittings include decorative “Black Peak” elements (dark aluminium accents with chrome edging).

Of course the main feature of the Eos is the fold-away metal roof. The fully opening CSC roof converts the Eos from coupe to cabriolet or vice versa in just 25 seconds. It also incorporates a sliding panoramic sunroof which makes it the most complete roof compartment anywhere ever! This feature used to be exclusive for the expensive Mercedes SL.

2011 Eos also gets “Premium” multifunction display with colour screen, the previously mentioned Light Assist main beam control system and second generation Park Assist complete with Park Pilot (assisted parallel and adjacent parking). Also new on the 2011 Eos is the Keyless Access lock and ignition system. The ignition is started here by pushing the convenient “Press & Drive” button, which replaces the ignition key slot.

Volkswagen Eos Engines Details:

1.4 TSI with 122 PS: In Europe, the Eos is powered as standard by a 90 kW / 122 PS 1.4-litre TSI engine (max. torque 200 Newton metres from 1,500 rpm). This turbocharged direct injection petrol engine allows a top speed of 198 km/h. Combined fuel consumption: 6.6 l/100 km (equivalent to 152 g/km CO2). In this engine configuration the Eos can also be ordered with BlueMotion Technology. Consumption is then reduced to 6.2 l/100 km (144 g/km CO2).

1.4 TSI with 160 PS: For the next level of engine power Volkswagen uses a 1.4-litre TSI with twincharger (turbo and compressor). It delivers 118 kW / 160 PS. The top speed of the Eos 1.4-litre TSI with this power output is 217 km/h. The high-torque twincharger (240 Newton metres from 1,500 rpm) enables comfortable cruising at low revs. Combined fuel consumption: 6.8 l/100 km (157 g/km CO2).

2.0 TSI with 200 PS and 210 PS: The most powerful petrol engine available for the new Eos is the 2.0-litre TSI. In the USA it produces 147 kW / 200 PS, while in Europe it will deliver 155 kW / 210 PS. The European version of this turbocharged direct injection engine develops a maximum torque of 280 Newton-metres from 1,700 rpm. Top speed: 238 km/h. Combined fuel consumption: 7.1 litres (165 g/km CO2). In Europe, Volkswagen will offer the dual clutch gearbox (DSG) on the Eos 2.0-litre TSI as an option. The DSG version achieves a top speed of 236 km/h and consumes 7.5 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres (174 g/km CO2). The 2.0-litre TSI of the American Eos – with standard DSG – develops an identical maximum torque of 280 Newton metres or 207 foot pounds from 1,800 rpm. In the US Highway cycle, the Eos 2.0 TSI attains a fuel economy of 31* mpg (City: 22* mpg).

2.0 TDI with 140 PS: The Eos 2.0-litre TDI (103 kW / 140 PS) is extremely fuel-efficient. At 5.2 l/100 km (138 g/km CO2), the four-cylinder engine, delivering 320 Newton-metres of torque, consumes 0.3 litres less fuel than the previous model. This engine can also be ordered with BlueMotion Technology (BMT) modifications. In this case, fuel consumption is reduced to 4.8 l/100 km (125 g/km CO2), which represents a 0.7 litre improvement compared to the previous model. Both versions reach a top speed of 207 km/h. The 2.0-litre TDI and 2.0-litre TDI BMT are also both available with a six-speed DSG transmission. The standard version then consumes 5.7 l/100 km (149 g/km CO2) and the BlueMotion Technology model 5.3 l/100 km (139 g/km CO2). These fuel consumption figures make the new Eos one of the most fuel-efficient cabriolets in the world.
