Generally, convertibles, performance-wise, are not in the same league as their fixed roof counterparts, but TheCarConnection.com finds that the 2010 Volkswagen Eos performs surprisingly well, especially in terms of pace and handling.

The only engine offered on the Eos is a 200-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo. Performance on this engine has been gaining strong support from reviewers, with Cars.com finding that it "responds quickly, and its power just keeps on coming." Fuel economy is pretty good at 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

The 2010 Volkswagen Eos comes with a six-speed manual transmission or six-speed dual-clutch automated manual gearbox, termed DSG. The latter is TheCarConnection.com's preference. Kelley Blue Book likes it, too, hailing it as one of its favorite features in the 2010 Eos and calling it "quick- and smooth-shifting."

One of the Eos' best attributes is its handling, which is relaxed enough so that you can enjoy the convertible experience but still firm enough to power through tricky corners. Edmunds reports that the 2010 Volkswagen Eos' “steering is fairly quick and its handling is capable."

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.
