New entry-level model for Volkswagen’s Eos convertible range

Volkswagen has added a new entry-level model to its Eos convertible coupe range.

The S trim will replace the current entry level Eos, which will have its specifications changed and be rebranded as an SE model.

In order to differentiate the two models, Volkswagen has made the new entry-level Eos cheaper by £585 – making it £19,440 on the road for the S1.4-litre TSI version with 122 PS and six-speed manual gearbox.

The new cars are also issued with ‘Climatic’ semi-automatic air conditioning, 16-inch alloy wheels, remote control central locking with alarm and a five-section electric roof system as a matter of course.

Meanwhile, the most basic SE will cost £20,530 and come with a multifunction computer, rear parking sensors and 17-ince alloy wheels.

The other two models in the range – Sport and Individual – will also be modified, with Sport being boosted by the addition of 18-inch alloy wheels and a luxury pack, which includes a rain and dusk sensor and door mirrors which can be folded electronically.

This luxury pack will also fitted to cars in the Individual range.

Shares in Volkswagen have fallen recently following news that Porsche is willing to sell up to five per cent of its share options in the company.
