EOS - End Of Service

In early 2011, the VW Eos shall receive its facelift, only to be replaced by the Passat Cabriolet three years later. This is because the Eos wasn’t in the good books of the VW management at Wolfsburg.

The convertible was signed off by the Pischetsrieder, Bernhard and Günak regime, and according to the new leaders it combines the worst of all worlds – a retractable hardtop along with the old family face sporting a chrome grille and teardrop headlamps. For 2011, the Eos gets the overdue make-over featuring restyled head- and taillights, a new grille, revised bumpers and a more up-market interior.

The next Passat will be derived from the transverse modular architecture MQB pioneered by the follow-up to the Audi A3. Like the Audi A5, the new VW convertible gets a power-operated soft top with a heated rear window, a pop-up rollover protection for the back benchers, safety front seats with integrated belts, optional neck warmers and a more efficient wind deflector. Thanks to the transversely mounted engine, cabin space will increase while the car´s overall length stays the same. In addition, the Passat convertible is expected to be a proper four-seater with a luggage compartment to match.

Last but not least, there will be more powerful engines such as a turbocharged four good for 250bhp and a twin-turbo 2.0litre diesel rated at 220bhp, both in combination with four-wheel drive.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
