The previous entry price for the Eos was £20,025, but prices for the new line-up start from £19,440 RRP 'on the road' for the S 1.4-litre TSI with 122 PS and six-speed manual gearbox. Specification remains largely unchanged with all models featuring ABS with ESP (Electronic Stabilisation Programme), 'Climatic' semi-automatic air conditioning, 16-inch alloy wheels, remote control central locking with alarm and five-section electric roof system as standard among a host of other items.
Moving up to SE and costing from £20,530, this model gains a multifunction computer, rear parking sensors, and front centre armrest plus 17-inch alloy wheels and a luxury pack (comprising automatic coming/leaving home lighting function, rain and dusk sensor plus electrically foldable door mirrors). These additions represent a £735 enhancement in value over the previous base model. Sport and Individual trim levels are also boosted. Sport now features upgraded 18-inch alloy wheels and luxury pack (£670 enhancement) while Individual also benefits from the luxury pack (£275). The four-seater Eos has proved extremely successful since launch in July 2006. Since then over 12,800 Eos models have been sold.B&B Builds 500 hp Volkswagen Eos sport
