2012 Volkswagen Eos

VW has unveiled today the new 2012 Volkswagen Eos and has released the complete details, and image gallery and the first video of the new version. The 2012 Volkswagen Eos will be available with a choice between four 4-cylinder engines: 1.4 TSI with 122 PS, 1.4 TSI with 160 PS, 2.0 TSI with 200 PS and 210 PS and 2.0 TDI with 140 PS. This is for the European versions.

The USA version of the 2012 Volkswagen Eos will be available with only the 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC turbocharged and intercooled four-cylinder gasoline engine developing 200 hp and 207 lbs-ft. of torque. With this engine, the 2012 Volkswagen Eos will offer a 31 mpg fuel consumption on the highway. As far as its design goes, the 2012 Volkswagen Eos shows the new VW face

and also features a newly styled rear end. The 2012 Volkswagen Eos features a new headlights design, a front grille with three shiny black louvers, and two-part LED rear lights with fiber optis technology.

The interior of the 2012 Volkswagen Eos features a new intrument panel, chrome-framed window buttons, walnut wood trim parts and a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel and shift knob.

New design adds increased elegance and sporting style

Front section: The appearance of the new Eos follows Volkswagen’s design DNA that is marked by clearly structured, horizontal lines. Extending between the new headlights now is a radiator grille protector consisting of three shiny black struts, each trimmed with a narrow chrome strip. 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.

A new optional extra for both types of headlight is the Light Assist main beam assistant. When turned on, it takes over the function of switching between dipped and main beam, automatically adapting this to the traffic conditions. Providing increased safety as standard on all models, meanwhile, are fog lamps that now feature integrated cornering lights.

Side and rear design: The Eos side profile benefits from a new range of alloy wheels. The Eos is supplied as standard with 16-inch Barcelona alloys and type 215 tyres. Other 16-inch, 17-inch and 18-inch sets of wheels are available as options.

The 16-inch winter wheels with full wheel covers have been carried over from the previous model.

The Eos can be recognised from behind by its reworked, two-part LED rear lights and rear bumper, which, in keeping with the front one, has also been redesigned. A striking feature of the technical and visual structure of the two-part rear lights (worked into the boot and wing) is a stylised M that incorporates the LEDs for the tail and brake lights.

Refined interior

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).

As an alternative, the Ambience Pack is also available, as previously, with elegant Walnut Root or Poplar Grain trim. The window buttons and light switches are now also always framed in chrome.

Cool leather for hot days: New fabrics (in Wave design) add an elegant touch to the standard seats (sport seats in the 103 kW / 140 PS model and above). Meanwhile, the new Nappa leather in cool leather form is both practical and exclusive. The name says it all: the cool leather reflects the sun’s rays, heating up much less than standard leather and making it an ideal material for an open-top car.

Also new in the interior is the design of the DSG gear shift gaiter and lever.

High-tech features

In technical terms, numerous new details distinguish the 2012 Volkswagen Eos. These include the 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 2012 Volkswagen 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.

Opening and closing the roof by remote control: On a car fitted with Keyless Access, the CSC roof can be opened and closed by wireless remote control – a new feature on the Eos range.

The car’s combined cabriolet (fold-away), sliding and coupé roof is an extremely well developed system. A standard component of the five-part roof unit is a sliding panoramic sunroof that bathes the interior of the Eos in light even in poor weather. The fully opening CSC roof converts the Eos from coupé to cabriolet or vice versa in just 25 seconds.

Four powerful and fuel-efficient four-cylinder engines

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.

HERNDON, Va. November 16, 2010 For the first time, Volkswagen of America, Inc. will unveil its all-new 2012 Volkswagen Eos hardtop convertible, at the Los Angeles Auto Show, with market introduction in early spring of 2011. Featuring an updated design with numerous new features, the 2012 Volkswagen Eos is the perfect complement of style and performance.

A convertible that boasts the versatility of a sophisticated four-season vehicle the Eos is a fun-to-drive, fully featured, premium convertible. The German engineered Eos is the only hardtop convertible with a built-in sunroof.

Exterior

Clearly structured and horizontally contoured, the freshened appearance of the new Eos, available in new exterior color options, follows the code of the Volkswagen design DNA. Extending now between the new headlights is a grille consisting of three shiny black louvers, each trimmed with a narrow chrome strip. With sporty handling and independent suspension, from behind, the Eos stands out through its reworked, two-part LED rear lights with a fiber optic technology system and redesigned rear bumper with diffuser.

Interior

The refined interior, available in several color options, showcases new trim on the instrument panel and doors with standard Matte Chrome detailing, as well as chrome-framed window buttons and light switches. On higher trim lines, genuine walnut wood adds elegance to the instrument and door panels, and is accompanied by supple Vienna leather seating. All Eos are equipped with leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel and shift knob.

Engine and Transmission

Providing a dynamic driving experience, the 2012 Volkswagen Eos features the powerful and efficient German engineering that drivers have come to expect from Volkswagen. The Eos utilizes the acclaimed 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC turbocharged and intercooled four-cylinder gasoline engine. The direct injected power plant produces 200 horsepower and develops 207 lbs-ft. of torque while delivering a top highway fuel economy of 31 mpg highway.

For 2012, the Eos features the automatic Direct-Shift GearboxВ® transmission as standard. This technologically advanced six-speed transmission incorporates an automatic dual-clutch system that instantly engages and disengages gears without the need for a clutch pedal. With a special computer controlling the process, one clutch is engaged on the next gear needed while the clutch from the previous gear is released.

The results are crisp, quick shifts without the loss of power that is experienced with a traditional manual gearbox.

High-Tech Features

In technical terms, numerous contemporary details set the 2012 Volkswagen Eos apart. With a robust five-part roof unit, the fully opening hardtop converts the Eos from coupe to convertible (and vice versa) in just 25 seconds with the touch of a button. Unlike any other convertible, the Eos features a fully-functional sunroof with shade, allowing an open-air experience when the convertible top is up.

A wind deflector has been cleverly integrated into the roof bow above the sun visors that effectively reduces wind noise when the top is stowed. And as temperatures rise and fall, the Eos is ready to respond with its dual-mode automatic climate control system that adjusts temperature based on the position of the convertible top. All of these make Eos a great alternative for all-season fun.

Also new on the Eos is the Keyless Entry and Start System, which allows the owner to get in and start up their Eos without getting out their key. Music lovers will enjoy the addition of HD Radio reception alongside SIRIUS satellite radio programming and MP3/WMA music file playback through the color touch-screen radio.

Safety

The 2012 Volkswagen Eos includes several features designed to enhance driver and passenger safety, including roll bars that are integrated into the seats and sensor-deployed in the event of a roll-over. Standard fog lamps now feature integrated cornering lights to heighten safety on all models.

Roadside Assistance and Warranty

The 2012 Volkswagen Eos comes standard with 24-hour Roadside Assistance for three years or 36,000 miles (whichever occurs first), through a third party provider. The vehicle’s standard limited warranties are:

Five-year / 60,000 mile (whichever occurs first) Powertrain Limited Warranty

Three-year / 36,000 mile (whichever occurs first) New Vehicle Limited Warranty

12-year unlimited distance Limited Warranty Against Corrosion Perforation

The Eos is covered by the no-charge Carefree Maintenance Program. Under this program, all of the scheduled maintenance, as described in the maintenance booklet, is covered for the length of the New Vehicle Warranty three years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Additionally, the Eos uses synthetic oil, which when combined with the state-of-the-art German engineering, eliminates the need for a 5,000 mile oil change.

This allows Volkswagen owners to drive farther between scheduled oil changes.
