Experts at TheCarConnection.com find that the 2009 Volkswagen Eos comes with plenty of nifty features—enough to keep most drivers happy. The options list is decent but not outstanding.
Kelley Blue Book points out the "cooled glove box" in the 2009 Eos, which helps protect valuables like phones, PDAs, and chocolate from the sun on warm days. The most widely recognized feature on the 2009 Volkswagen Eos, however, 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.
ForbesAutos 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. For 2009, the adaptive front headlamps are available as part of a Technology Package. Other popular options include heated front seats in the top-level trims and leather upholstery standard on the V-6 version. A navigation system is also offered on the Eos, as well as satellite radio.
The 2009 Volkswagen Eos offers a nice range of features across the board.
