Four years after it hit the market, Volkswagen is giving the Eos coupe-cabriolet its first cosmetic makeover. The facelifted model, which will have its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show in late November, goes on sale in January 2011.

The exterior restyling brings the Eos in line with VW's latest models such as the new Touareg, Passat B7 and Jetta. At the front, there's a new upper grille which is now completely separated from the lower. The headlamps now incorporate the horse-shoe shaped LED running lights. The bumper has been re-designed and the side mirrors look more chiseled. Moving to the rear, the revised bumper now house a diffuser and the new rectangular tail lamps incorporate LED techbology.

Inside the cabin, the changes are limited to some fresh colors, new controls for the air conditioning system and additional features such as the keyless locking and starting system, a new multi-function color display and remote control for the retractable hardtop.

Under the hood, the only change is the incorporation of start-stop system and regenerative braking for the 140hp 2.0 litre TDI engine that helps to improve fuel consumption by 0.7 litre / 100km. More details on the 2011 VW Eos will be released at the car's LA Sow premiere in November.

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.
