Styling is one of the low points for the 2010 Eos, which derives its name from the Greek goddess of the dawn. The model doesn't strike out in any new directions for VW and can look a little ungainly from some angles, especially the way its proportions fit together with the top up. Here, more reviewers disagree with TheCarConnection.com. Cars.com is a fan of the "clean, sporty look" of the Eos, and Volkswagen gains more praise from Kelley Blue Book for its "attractive but understated styling."
The neat, straightforward exterior styling in both top-up or top-down configurations is a testament to the designers at Volkswagen, something that can't be said of most convertibles. Such cars, historically, can go either way when it comes to styling, with their character changing dramatically depending on whether the top is up or down. The 2010 Volkswagen Eos’ use of a hardtop convertible as opposed to a soft top is a way of overcoming the problem.
There are no complaints when it comes to the 2010 Volkswagen Eos' well-designed interior, though. Volkswagen seems to stick with its impressive interior controls, bringing forward designs that other makes aspire to. ConsumerGuide is a fan of the "clear gauges [that] complement mostly handy, intuitive controls."
