2014 Volkswagen Eos Providence RI

In the eight years since the first production of the Volkswagen Eos, it has managed to carve out a niche among sophisticated sport coupes that has inspired a number of like-minded competitors and even more dedicated Eos fanatics. With its upscale interior and compelling performance profile, its status as the first choice among luxury vehicles of this type is secure, but many in the area around Speedcraft VW in Providence still have questions. So, to parse through some of the details of the 2014 Volkswagen Eos, let’s get some answers.

First off, what is an “Eos”? Well, it’s not “what,” but “whom.” Eos was the name of the Greek goddess of the dawn, and in Greek mythology, it was her job to open the gates of heaven so that her brother Helios (who was the sun), could bring daylight to the world. How’s that for suggestive symbolism?

The versatile roof of the Eos is suitable for all conditions.

Tell me about this convertible top I’ve heard so much about. In all likelihood, the feature of the 2014 VW Eos that has received the most press is its innovative retractable hardtop. It’s the first of its kind, featuring an integrated tilting/sliding sunroof that still allows the daylight in when the roof is in the “up” position. With the push of a button, the roof retracts into the trunk in less than 25 seconds, and when the roof is closed, it’s as quiet as any hardtop coupe around.

How’s its performance? The 2014 VW Eos is built to be a sophisticated all-around experience, and that mission extends to its performance profile. The Eos is powered by a 2.0L Turbo Four-cylinder engine, which is paired with the popular six-speed DSG (an automated manual transmission) to produce an athletic 200 horsepower. It goes zero-to-sixty in about seven seconds, and produces an EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway. All around, the 2014 VW Eos is perfectly suited to the New England driver who enjoys a refined vehicle to navigate our scenic beaches and backwoods.

The practical interior of the 2014 VW Eos has everything you want, and nothing you don’t.

And the interior? The upscale interior cabin of the 2014 VW Eos is perhaps its most attractive draw, with distinctly European craftsmanship creating an overall impression that is both high in quality while being exceedingly practical. Clean lines run throughout the upholstery and dashboard controls, making the Eos the ideal touring sport coupe/convertible. A info touchscreen with navigation functionality also comes standard, and with three trim levels–the Komfort, Sport, and Executive–auto buyers of all types will be satisfied with what this vehicle has to offer.

The 2014 Volkswagen Eos is now available to Providence-area drivers at Speedcraft VW in Wakefield, RI, the area’s best-reviewed Volkswagen dealer. To learn more about this terrific vehicle in time for the upcoming summer travel season, visit our dealership today, or call to schedule a test drive.
