New For 2013

Last year saw a mild cosmetic and mechanical update for the Eos, so 2013 is a quiet year for the hardtop convertible. There’s a new Sport trim with eighteen-inch wheels, a lowered sport suspension, swiveling xenon headlights, paddle shifters, and a rear spoiler. Lux and Executive models get the adaptive headlights along with a bold, new interior color, Atlantic blue.


The Eos might not be an enthusiast’s dream, but it’s a solid value if you’re in the market for a convertible with a real back seat. The base model undercuts the price of several other four-seat, retractable-hardtop convertibles while delivering an excellent open-air experience. Riding on the same versatile platform that underpins VW’s other compact offerings, the Eos handles well and rides with a pleasant suppleness, and engineers were able to keep the loss of structural rigidity to a minimum. But it’s the engine—a refined and energetic turbo four-cylinder—that gives the Eos its star quality. Volkswagen’s six-speed dual-clutch transmission is a sporty, engaging alternative to a conventional automatic. Inside, the Eos boasts a level of refinement that transcends its price; the cabin far surpasses that of the Chrysler 200 convertible in terms of fit and finish. The five-piece glass-and-steel roof lowers in twenty-five seconds with the push of a button. If you’re in the mood for a bit less wind and sun, this Volkswagen can manage that, too. All Eos models come with a sunroof that tilts and slides open. At 44 inches wide, the sunroof is larger than those in most fixed-roof cars. Cargo space is generous with the top up, but top-down weekend trips with four people will require packing lightly, as trunk space shrinks significantly with the top stowed.


Standard are ABS, front and side air bags, tire-pressure monitoring, and traction and stability control. In the event of a collision or rollover, two spring-loaded aluminum posts deploy from behind the rear-seat head restraints in a quarter of a second to help protect rear passengers.

You'll like:

You won't like:

2013 VW Eos Front View Action
The Volkswagen Eos has always been a bit of a tweener, perhaps too close to other VW models, and that issue hasn't gone unnoticed at headquarters. We hear now that VW isn't looking to renew the Eos, instead looking at a larger convertible with a cloth top.

Recall Date
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, and Passat, 2010-2013 Eos, 2011-2014 Golf, GTI, Jetta, and Tiguan, and 2012-2014 Jetta Sportwagen vehicles. In the affected vehicles, debris may contaminate the air bag clock spring, a spiral wound, flat cable that keeps the air bag powered while the steering wheel is being turned. This contamination may tear the cable and result in a loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag.
A loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag will prevent the air bag from deploying in the event of a vehicle crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will install a cover to prevent clockspring contamination. Any clockspring that fails prior to the cover installation will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. Interim notices were mailed to owners on September 25, 2015. Owners will receive a second notice when parts become available in early 2016. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987.
