Stuart has just gotten out of the VW press conference and has more info on the German company’s wares for 2006. The first is the new VW Eos hardtop convertible. It’s called a CSC design for coupe-sunroof-convertible. Apparently it is the first hardtop convertible ever to incorporate a sunroof, as well. The hardtop is able to go up or down in a swift 25 seconds.

The U.S. market Eos will get VW’s 2.0L turbo four-cylinder rated at 200-hp or a 250-hp, 3.2L V6.

The interior includes another first – VW’s easy-entry seats that remembers front seat positions when seats are moved to allow rear seat passengers in and out. Safety features include safety-optimized front headrests and special front-side head-thorax airbags.

If you’re looking for more the Eos will also offer an optional Dynaudio 10-channel, 500-watt sound system and bixenon headlights with dynamic and static cornering lights.

More pics from the show and official shots of the Eos after the jump...
