Expert Quotes:

The Eos styling is attractive, but ordinary.
MSN Autos

The Eos seems to be one part Golf, one part Passat, and one part Monty Python's Flying Circus.
Car and Driver

As a sport coupe, the Eos is impressive. It's simply a very sharp compact car.
European Car

Its front end sports the new VW wide-mouthed shiny chrome grille, while the back end is assertively sporty.
Edmunds' Inside Line


Calling the 2011 Volkswagen Eos understated—at least on the outside—is an understatement. It's very, very bland, and looks styled to offend no one; unfortunately, no pulses are going to be raised as it passes by, either. You can see hints of Volkswagen's Golf-based Cabriolet from years ago, as well as hints of the sophisticated (Europe-only) Scirocco on which it's based, but the Eos can look a little ungainly from some angles, especially the way its proportions fit together with the top up. However, it's a subject of contention here, and at least one of our editors really likes the styling, calling it near and straightforward—and fitting well fith both the top up or down, which is a task.

Inside it's a different story; its interior feels a step above most other Volkswagen models, with a streamlined look and upgraded materials. It's hardly sexy, but it's nicely detailed with just a bit of brightwork, but not too much, and a neat, simple look that's slightly more rakish than in the Golf and GTI.

Conclusion

The 2011 Volkswagen Eos is handsome and plain on the outside, a little more charming inside.

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.
