Accessible Eos: VW Prices New Convertible Under $30,000

The car company of the folks just announced pricing for its new Eos convertible. As expected, it's coming in under 30 large, or $27,990 at base — that'd be with the 200hp 2.0 liter turbo four — though with VW's more potent, narrow-angle V6, the MSRP rises to a more princely $36,850. Premium-package options include six-speed DSG auto box with Tiptronic, leather wrapped steering wheel, shift knob and brake handle, automatic headlights, dual-zone climate control, 12-way power driver seat, heated front seats and washer nozzles, windblocker, center armrest and trip computer, for $31,065. The VR6 model includes wood trim, all-season tires, multifunction steering wheel, HomeLink, rain-sensing wipers and satellite radio. Not enough options? Try a 600-watt Dynaudio sound system with ten-channel amplifier and ten speakers, bi-Xenon "theft bait" headlights with dynamic and static cornering lights, DVD nav system, park distance control and 18-inch alloys. Goddess of the Dawn sold separately.
