Volkswagen Eos Interior

Test drivers agree that the 2015 Volkswagen Eos has an elegant interior design, top-notch materials and excellent build quality. They particularly like the Eos’ convertible top, which includes a unique built-in panoramic sunroof. Reviewers agree that the front seats are comfortable, but, as with most convertibles, the back seats are cramped for adults and the trunk is quite small.

  • "The refined interior, available in several color options, showcases standard ‘Matte Chrome’ detailing as well as chrome-framed window buttons and light switches." -- Left Lane News
  • "Open or enclosed, the cabin features high-quality materials and excellent overall fit and finish." -- Edmunds
  • "The VW Eos' interior is more intelligently designed and better assembled than cars we've driven costing twice as much." -- Kelley Blue Book (2014)

Seating

The 2015 VW Eos seats four and comes standard with leatherette upholstery, heated front seats and a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Available features include leather upholstery and a 12-way power-adjustable front passenger seat. The Eos’ front seats are spacious, supportive and comfortable on long trips, according to critics. They add that the back seats are roomy enough for kids, but tight for adults, which isn’t unusual for a convertible. Test drivers say that wind turbulence is well-controlled with the top down.

  • "Although the backseat is suitable for kids, adults will feel cramped, as the convertible top mechanism impinges on both passenger and trunk space." -- Edmunds
  • "Thanks in part to the tall front deflector that can be manually deployed from the windshield's edge, wind buffeting in the passenger cabin is kept to a minimum." -- Kelley Blue Book (2014)
  • "The Eos model's front seats provide firm long-distance comfort and surprisingly good lateral support through the corners." -- AutoTrader (2014)

Interior Features

The 2015 Volkswagen Eos comes standard with a power-retractable hardtop with a built-in panoramic glass sunroof, a 5-inch touch-screen navigation system, dual-zone automatic climate control, iPod and auxiliary inputs, Bluetooth, satellite radio, a CD player and an eight-speaker sound system. Available features include a touch-screen navigation system with a 6.5-inch display, push-button start, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors and a 10-speaker Dynaudio sound system.

Automotive journalists like the Eos’ unique convertible top, which features a large built-in sunroof. Critics add that most of the Eos’ dashboard controls are easy to use, though some complain that the screen on the standard navigation system is too small.

  • "The base touchscreen interface in Komfort and Final Edition works pretty well from an audio standpoint (the iPod interface is particularly well designed), but navigation functionality is hampered by the screen's small size." -- Edmunds
  • "The big story with the Eos is, of course, its power-retractable hardtop, which lowers in 25 seconds and features an integrated power sunroof that both tilts and slides independent of the rest of the roof. It's a remarkable engineering achievement, especially given that the sunroof, at 44 in wide and 22 in deep, is one of the largest sliding panels in the business." -- AutoTrader (2014)
  • "Like most other VWs, the Eos offers a simple, user-friendly dashboard with clear gauges and mostly handy, intuitive switchgear." -- Consumer Guide (2013)

Cargo

The 2015 VW Eos has 10.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the top up and 6.6 cubic feet with the top down. While that’s decent for a convertible, most critics are still disappointed with the cargo capacity, especially with the top down. The Eos comes standard with a lockable center pass-through for long, narrow items, but its rear seats do not fold down to expand trunk space.

  • "The trunk offers just 6.6 cubic feet of luggage space if you have the top down and a still-skimpy 10.5 cubic feet with the top up." -- Edmunds
  • "Cargo space is generous with the top up, but top-down weekend trips with four people aboard will require packing lightly, as trunk space shrinks significantly with the top stowed, falling short of the competition by a fair bit." -- Automobile Magazine (2014)
  • "VW claims 10.5 cubic-feet of trunk space with the roof raised and just 6.6 with the top dropped. The latter is sufficient for a few medium-size duffels, but larger suitcases and golf bags won't fit, and the irregular trunk shape requires careful packing even when you don't travel al fresco." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
