Like many of the company’s cars, the 2008 Volkswagen Eos comes loaded with more features than you would find on its chief rivals, and it offers a decent list of optional equipment.
The most widely recognized feature on the 2008 Volkswagen Eos is unquestionably its retractable hardtop, which Popular Mechanics describes as "a marvel of metallic origami." Also included in that folding top is a sunroof function, wherein one panel retracts, leaving the rest of the hardtop raised. It’s a welcome feature for those sunny days when it's a bit too cold to take the top down. Kelley Blue Book points out the “cooled glove box,” which helps protect valuables like phones, PDAs, and chocolate from the sun on warm days.
The interior of the 2008 Volkswagen Eos offers occupants many sought-after features, such as heated front seats in the top-level trims and leather upholstery standard on the V-6 version. Forbes Autos also mentions that "options include a premium sound system, DVD navigation...Park Distance Control proximity warnings, and adaptive headlamps." Those headlamps also serve as a great safety feature at night on twisting roads, as they swivel in the direction of a turn to provide additional illumination where you need it most.
A navigation system is also offered on the Eos; Volkswagen also offers satellite radio.
