The 2014 VW Eos is a practice in understated design and conservative styling. There's not a tremendous amount of charm in the design, but it's also straightforward, handsome and seemingly built to be as unoffensive as possible.
The Eos wins points for being attractive regardless of whether the top is up or down–a feat for four-seat convertibles–and it's styling is softer than just about any other car in the segment. The relationship to the VW Golf is obvious from nearly every angle, so it never looks awkward or unattractive–which can't be said about the 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. You won't find 'sexy' as a descriptor that applies here, but the interior layout is a bit more rakish than that of the Golf and GTI, with smoothly contoured interior trim detailed with just the right amount of brightwork.
