SAFETY | 9 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal impact; 'good,' side impact; 'good,' rear impact

Safety can be a worry for convertible shoppers—and rightly so. But the 2011 Volkswagen Eos has it covered with a good list of safety equipment, including standard traction control, head/thorax airbags for front seat passengers, and a pop-up roll bar located behind the rear seats.

The stylish convertible also has good test scores. Though the federal government hasn't tested the Eos, in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests, the Eos earned top 'good' results in frontal, side, and rear impact.

The pop-up head protection system in the Eos, which automatically deploys when the car senses a rollover is imminent, is a standout in this more cost-conscious end of the convertible market—employing a host of sensors to deploy just before it's needed, when a rollover is anticipated. Additional safety-minded goodies include an optional Park Distance Control and a Technology Package that includes upgrades to the lighting system (an adaptive swiveling function).


Thanks to some features that go above and beyond, the 2011 Volkswagen Eos is a very safe pick, top up or down.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
