The top doesn't require a lot of extra space above the car to operate, but you do have to provide at least 16 inches behind the car. Rear sensors will warn you if you do not have enough room to complete the process.
Edmunds' Inside Line



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.

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.

Conclusion

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

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.
