When compared hardtop convertible layouts—from rivals like the Volvo X70 and Chrysler Sebring—it doesn't get any better than this. In less than 25 seconds, a total of eight electric motors work in conjunction to unlatch the roof from the windshield header and flip and fold it under the metal trunk lid. The convertible roof also has a setting that opens the front section only like a sunroof. And with the top stowed away, cargo capacity remains a decent (for the class) 6.6 cubic feet, which is enough for an overhead-bin-sized suitcase.
Otherwise, the story is pretty impressive inside. Materials and trims are top-notch, with more premium look and feel that's only rivaled in VW's product line in the CC sedan (and possibly the Touareg). Ride quality is firm but supple enough to soak up medium-sized potholes. Some road noise is present, but it's not any more than you'd notice in sporty coupes that don't have the Eos's convertible top.
