For some, the idea of a Volkswagen cabriolet coupe seems something of a myth, but between 2006 and 2015 it did indeed exist in the form of the VW Eos. It was actually a successor to the VW Golf Cabriolet, so the convertible market wasn’t entirely alien to Volkswagen anyway at that point. It was also the first coupe that the German giant had built since the discontinuation of the VW Corrado, which was built between 1988 and 1995.

All VW Eos models conform to a single generation, but there was a mid-life facelift conducted in 2010 that then went on sale outside of Europe as well in the 2012 model year. Some base-level models in the US even survived the axing of the model in 2015, continuing to be sold into the 2016 model year.

As a convertible, the VW Eos also stood out for its unique roof design, an industry first at the time. The roof includes a 5-piece folding assembly and an independently sliding glass sunroof. When activated, it would fold automatically into the trunk in just 25 seconds, and would reduce trunk space from 10.5 cubic feet to about 6.5 cubic feet after doing so.

A number of powertrains were available, from 1.4-liter inline-4 gasoline engines to 3.6-liter VR6 (gasoline models) and a 2.0L diesel option, too. The most powerful variant was the 3.6-liter VR6, which could get up to 256-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and was paired with Volkswagen’s cutting-edge 6-speed direct shift gearbox (DSG), a dual-clutch system that’s far more dynamic than any typical torque converter transmission.

Volkswagen sold the VW Eos mostly in mainland Europe, North America and other left-hand-drive markets. In late 2006, however, they did also export right-hand-drive versions to Japan, New Zealand, and then Australia and South Africa.
