Description

With its retractable hardtop and excellent drivetrains, the new Eos convertible is a welcome addition to the Volkswagen lineup and to the market as a whole. VW has a habit of releasing convertible models in the fall (if twice makes it a habit). The last time was the Beetle Convertible, a soft-top. This time it's a little more appropriate because the Eos' retractable hardtop makes it more viable as a four-season car. VW needs this convertible. True, it has one, but let's face it: Many men are as comfortable driving a Beetle as they are holding their wife's purse. (Note I said many ... I can see the hate mail already.) Aside from a line of Canon cameras, Eos is also the goddess of dawn in Greek mythology ? daughter of Hyperion and Theia. This being a convertible, it might be more relevant that she's the middle sister of Helios and Selene (the sun and moon). In "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey," Homer describes Eos as "rosy fingered" and "saffron robed." I describe Eos as a Rabbit with the top lopped off. Actually, it's not lopped off, it's sectioned and articulated to store in the trunk; you'd only know it's not a fixed-roof coupe if you got close and looked carefully, or observed it going through its 25-second transformation. Though it shares its platform with the Rabbit, the Eos has the Jetta's plunging chrome grille, combined with more interesting, scalloped headlights.
