The update to the Volkswagen Eos takes the convertible's appearance from so-so to fab for 2011. The Eos facelift is entirely cosmetic - which includes VW's new face that is being rolled out across the model line-up with a glossy black grille. The car’s rear shows off a new LED light cluster and a redesigned rear bumper with a diffuser. Additional enhancements include a multi-function instrument panel with colour display, a dipped-beam system that automatically switches for you and the latest generation parking assistant. VW will also introduce “cool leather” - skins treated to remain cool in hot weather by reflecting the sun’s rays - as an option on the drop-top. The updated Eos will be shown at November’s Los Angeles auto show but it is not yet clear whether the face-lifted Eos will be sold in South Africa.
