The Top Gear car review:Volkswagen Eos
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
The seats are excellent. And of course it’s cramped in the back, but not as bad as the hatch-derived opposition, so maybe VW does have a point there. The glass roof slides to make a sunroof if you don’t want to blast your passengers.
VW has a knack of making seats and instruments look well-crafted, but the Eos’s quality impression is undermined by the shaky body and some scrappy plastics in the lower dash. Roof reliability hasn’t been perfect either.
Like all CCs the boot space suffers when the roof is down, despite the huge complexity of the Eos’s effort.
