6th October, 2010

With the arrival of the new model year 2011, the Volkswagen Eos will be treated to an engine upgrade, which sees the Eos deliver the same power output as the Golf GTI.

With the arrival of the MY11 Eos, Volkswagen's coupe/convertible now features the 2.0 litre four-cylinder TSI petrol engine with a 155 kW power output, which allows the vehicle to accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h in 7.8 seconds. Maximum torque – 280 Nm – is delivered between 1,700 and 5,200 rpm, an exceptionally wide range to provide excellent in-gear performance and keen throttle response. The Volkswagen Eos is available with a six-speed manual or six-speed DSG transmission. Emissions of CO2 are 173 g/km (DSG: 184 g/km) and fuel consumption is just 7.4 L/100 km (DSG: 7.9 L/100 km).

The VW Eos’s TSI engine offers new features including modified pistons and piston rings, new induction system and a high-pressure fuel pump. This engine was designed for Euro V compliance, lower CO2 emissions, fuel efficiency, ease of servicing and “packaging”.

The Volkswagen Eos is still available with the 2.0 litre four-cylinder 103 kW diesel paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed DSG gearbox. Model Year 2011 also gives the Volkswagen Eos some other enhancements like standard Vienna leather upholstery with heated front seats, new 17” alloy wheels and a range of new exterior colours combined with new chrome grille strips and 'cherry red' tail lights.

Every manual VW Eos now comes with standard Hill Start Assist (HSA), which holds the vehicle when the foot brake is released by temporarily locking the brake pressure (for a maximum of 1.5 seconds) to provide comfortable starting-off without rolling back. Hill Start Assist (HSA) operates on inclines greater than 5%.

Pricing begins from $46,990* for the Eos 103TDI and $48,990* for the Eos 155TSI.

NOTE: * Prices indicated in this news story are the manufacturer's list prices (MLP) only. As such, the on-road costs (such as dealer delivery fees and the various state/territory statutory charges) are not included in the MLP. Additionally, prices are always subject to change without notice.
