Expert Quotes:

The Eos styling is attractive, but ordinary.
MSN Autos

The Eos seems to be one part Golf, one part Passat, and one part Monty Python's Flying Circus.
Car and Driver

As a sport coupe, the Eos is impressive. It's simply a very sharp compact car.
European Car

Its front end sports the new VW wide-mouthed shiny chrome grille, while the back end is assertively sporty.
Edmunds' Inside Line


Sedate, sober, conservative--they're all words that describe the Volkswagen Eos pretty well. For most convertibles, that would be a problem--would anyone buy a wallflower droptop Mustang? But for the Eos, it's an underline to its softer, more feminine appeal. We're divided here on exactly how the styling affects how we feel about the Eos overall; some of us call it a neat, pinned-down design that gets better on the road, while the rest of us think it's bland when it doesn't have to be. Whatever its faults, it's still clearly related to the VW Golf that shares some of its architecture, and even with the top up, the design never veers into awkwardness--which is more than we can say about the competitive Chrysler 200.

Inside it's a different story; its interior feels a step above most other Volkswagen models, with a streamlined look and upgraded materials. It's hardly sexy, but it's nicely detailed with just a bit of brightwork, but not too much, and a neat, simple look that's slightly more rakish than in the Golf and GTI.

Conclusion

Convertibles usually make stronger styling statements than the VW Eos does.

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.
