2016 Volkswagen Eos in Morris County NJ
The idea that a car ought to be both fun and affordable isn’t a novel concept, but one that too-often seems to be forgotten. The 2016 Volkswagen Eos in Morris County NJ exemplifies the concept, as it provides the ideal and combines it with the practical. A convertible has long been the symbol of success, as a vehicle without a top isn’t considered practical in places that see a lot of rain or snowfall, but the Eos makes it practical with a durable hardtop that transforms the mode into a two-door coupe.
It’s not that the 2016 VW Eos is the only hardtop on the market, but the style is falling out of favor as soft-top models appeal with their two-tone color schemes and affordable price tags. The outgoing Eos has dropped in price to make it a more viable option, coming in with an MSRP of $31,995. This is a price drop of roughly $4,000, without the loss of the standard features that give it luxury. The overall result is the best value that’s ever been offered for the Eos, making it an ideal time to get behind the wheel.
Driving a convertible is partially about convenience, but there’s no denying the style helps too. The Eos is a hardtop convertible that takes on a coupe appearance with the top raised. Unlike soft-top models, it’s difficult to tell it’s a convertible when the top is up, aside from a few seams where the top folds.
As the model is ending its production after the limited run, it retains the same engine as the previous model year: a 200 horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that offers 207 pound-feet of torque. Paired with the engine is a standard six-speed dual-clutch DSG automatic with Tiptronic mode.
Part of the appeal of driving a convertible is the concept of luxury, and a stripped-down model feels anything but premium. Which is why the Eos has plenty of high-quality standard features such as a panoramic sunroof, Bluetooth with audio, dual-zone climate control and heated front seats.
