2012 Volkswagen Eos Fuel Economy

7.0
Fuel Economy

Volkswagen launched the Eos in 2007 with a choice of four- and six-cylinder engines, but it's since trimmed the lineup to include just the turbocharged four, with a choice of manual or DSG automatic transmissions.

The four-cylinder produces great EPA ratings for the Eos, one of the few four-seat convertibles that gets fuel economy of more than 30 mpg. The manual-transmission models earn 21/31 mpg, while versions that shift via the automatic transmission have an EPA rating of 22/30 mpg.

Four-seat convertibles don't get much more efficient than the VW Eos.

The Eos' combined ratings are better even than a Mazda Miata, and that makes the Eos one of the greenest convertible picks on the market.
