Volkswagen Eos Exclusive – Click above for high-res image gallery

Volkswagen's campaign to move upmarket has been unrelenting. Between the likes of the Phaeton and the CC, the German automaker is not shying away from taking on BMW and Mercedes-Benz, or even its sister-company Audi, for that matter. VW's new Exclusive line does its part, too, upgrading existing models with some extra lux touches for those interested in a touch of added refinement.

Volkswagen Eos ExclusiveThe Touareg – another fine example of the luxurification of the People's Car – was the most recent to get the Exclusive treatment, and now VW has turned its attention to the newly refreshed Eos. Not only has the hard-top cabrio received a facelift and an engine swap, but now the Exclusive department has upgraded it with two-tone Nappa leather offset by aluminum and piano black trim, a new steering wheel and restyled door sills. The optional sport suspension comes standard on the Exclusive model, and buyers can choose from two 18-inch wheel designs. Pricing in Europe, where the Eos has been rolled out prior to its debut in other markets, starts at €35,275 (around $50,000 based on current exchange rates, not that those figures are comparable).

      $50K? Seems a little pricey to me, but that interior looks very nice in those colors.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It won't be nearly that expensive in the US.

      Oh cool! I think I found the cure for my insomnia.

      "Volkswagen's campaign to move upmarket has been unrelenting,"...except for the Jetta, which has taken a move decisively DOWN-market.

        So true. VW looks like a brand on the verge of identity crisis.

      One thing I like about having a hard-top convertible is that the top and body are all the same color. This edition screws that up. I do like the interior better, though.

      How about a one year old 335i convertable instead?
      The HP fuel pump is covered through 125 00 miles now.

      Taking on BMW, Mercedes, and Audi? I don't think so. Top-of-the-line VWs are luxurious cars. Audis, Mercs and Beamers are luxury cars. Big difference.

      How many cars can VW and Audi produce on the same Golf platform? And how can they charge so much for body-variations of the same car?

      This car looks best with the top UP.... it reminds me of a Chrysler Sebring convertible when the top is down... which IMHO is sort of ugly.

      Way to bland it up VW. You make Toyotas look sexy.
        • 4 Years Ago
        ..yea,Toyotas are sexy...generic as Asian cars can get..Camry or Passat CC??Hmmm thats tough.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'm referring to their recent design direction. Have you seen the upcoming Passat? It's a toss up between tit and the Camry for beigeness.

      WTG VW! The first EOS was kind of interesting to look at. It's good to see you've removed the interest and really raised the generic quotient with this design. Most people probably will think it's a Passat or Golf at first glance, unless they see the top down. You seem to be winning your race towards design mediocrity. I understand corporations wanting to have a "noticeable" style all their own, to make their cars recognizable. Some times that's a bad thing, as VW successfully demonstrates.

      it is only slightly less girly. Perhaps manly chicks will drive it.
