The original Eos was launched in the UK in July 2006. Slotting into the range between the Golf and the Passat in terms of size, the Eos continues a long-running tradition of convertibles from Volkswagen which started with the Beetle over 50 years ago. The Eos was a four-seater coupé cabriolet with unique five-piece steel and glass roof which also comprises a sunroof. Referred to as CSC – meaning it had the characteristics of a hard-top coupé, sliding glass sunroof, and fully convertible. Orders for the Eos are now closed.
