Volkswagen launches Eos cabriolet in Europe
Wolfsburg, Germany – Volkswagen has announced the launch of the all-new Eos cabriolet; sales will begin in May 2006 in Europe, with other continents following later in the year.
The Eos features a five-piece convertible, sliding and coupe roof (CSC-roof), which opens or closes completely in 25 seconds. The front glass section can be used as a panorama sunroof and can be opened completely or tilted upwards by 35 mm.
In Europe, the Eos is available with four gasoline engines in four- or six-cylinder configuration, as well as a 140 hp TDI; the V6 will use Volkswagen’s DSG double-clutch automatic transmission.
