Just like its namesake in Greek Mythology, the Titan goddess of the dawn who rose from her home at the edge of Oceanus, the re-designed Volkswagen Eos will emerge to the press and public on the edge of the Pacific Ocean at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Early images of the significantly enhanced hard top convertible show an updated design that has been enhanced with numerous new features.
In traditional VW DNA design language, the exterior is clearly structured and horizontally contoured with a radiator grille consisting of three shiny black louvers between the newly designed head lights. Two part LED rear lights with a fiber optic technology system and redesigned rear bumper with diffuser create a new look from behind.
On the interior, it is technology that rules the re-design details with a new multi-function instrument panel with color display and second generation park assist. Also new on the 2012 Eos is the Keyless Access system, which as a new feature also opens and closes the roof by wireless remote control. The special Light Assist system takes over the function of switching between dipped and main beam, automatically adapting this to the traffic situation.
And just like the origins of the mythical character, Eos, who rose from Oceanus to herald her brother Helios, the sun, the 2012 VW Eos is a true worshipper of the sun with a convertible top ready to play in the sunshine.
