VW Eos updated with GTI engine and design refresh

Volkswagen has pulled the covers off its mid-life updates for its convertible Eos model. Along with a number of interior and equipment updates, the updated Eos now features the Golf GTI’s 2.0 litre four-cylinder TSI petrol engine, replacing the previous range-topping 147TSI.

The 155kw GTI motor will be made available with either a six-speed manual or VW’s dual-clutch transmission¬† and will take the 1580kg Eos to 100kph in a respectable 7.8 seconds.

Volkswagen has also included Hill Start Assist standard on the 2011 Eos, along with classy Vienna leather upholstery, heated seats, 17-inch wheels and an updated grille and taillights. The exterior tweeks will visually bring the Eos into line with the rest of the brand’s small car lineup.
