Volkswagen has revealed a facelifted version of its Eos coupe-cabriolet that brings its styling in line with the rest of the VW range.
The revised model, officially launched at today’s Los Angeles motor show ahead of European sales in January 2011, is the latest in a long line of recent VW models to receive a Golf-style makeover.
This means it gets a re-designed front-end including a new headlight design incorporating LED daytime running lights, a new chrome-trimmed front grille and a lower, wider air intake at the bottom. New fog lights also feature.
Changes at the rear are also inspired by the Golf; its rear lights have been squared off, while the bumper has also been re-designed.
Changes to the interior are less substantial, however. Some material quality is improved and new leather trim options are offered, while there is also a new steering wheel and a new instrument panel.
New features include Light and Park Assist systems and keyless entry and start. The retractable hard-top roof can also be controlled by the wireless remote control.
UK engine options for the revised Eos haven’t been revealed. But European buyers can choose from a 138bhp 2.0 TDI engine mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed DSG gearbox, as well as three petrol units: a 120bhp 1.4 TSI, a 158bhp 1.4 TSI and a 207bhp 2.0 TSI. All three petrol engines are available with a six-speed manual gearbox, while a six-speed DSG is available for the most powerful petrol unit.
