2012 Volkswagen Eos Features

8.0
On Features

The VW Eos doesn't have some of the latest technology features on its options list, but the list of standard features is fairly long.

Buyers can choose between the Komfort or Lux versions of the Eos. On either one, there's standard power features, including power windows, locks, mirrors, and of course, the power-folding hardtop. VW also includes standard Bluetooth, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, and an LCD touchscreen that controls the stereo system.

There's not much wow factor in the Eos' options list, but it's outfitted with the right standard features.

Vinyl upholstery--"leatherette" is the marketing word--is the standard upholstery on Komfort models, but Lux editions have a choice of leather trim and a power driver seat. The Lux also gets a 600-watt, ten-speaker Dynaudio premium surround system, a navigation system with hard-drive music storage, Sirius Satellite radio, and SD memory-car slot, and steering-wheel controls.

iPod connectivity is a stand-alone option, but there are several packages, including a Technology Package that includes adaptive front headlamps. Also available on the Lux is a sport suspension and larger 18-inch alloy wheels.
