The most widely recognized feature on the vehicle, however, is definitely the retractable hardtop, which Popular Mechanics finds "a marvel of metallic origami." On those sunny days when it's a bit too cold to take the top down, there is also a sunroof function, wherein one panel retracts, leaving the rest of the hardtop intact.
There are some features that are usually standard on cars in the $30,000-and-up category that you won't find on the Eos, like steering-wheel controls for the radio and automatic headlamps. However, the headlamps on the Eos 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 2010, 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. A navigation system is also offered on the Eos, and Volkswagen offers satellite radio as well.
