The engine is known as a potent yet fuel efficient turbocharged four-cylinder outputting 155kW of power and 280Nm of torque. Not only does it have this much torque though it's also very versatile; 280Nm available between 1,700 and 5,200 rpm.

In the Volkswagen Eos the engine allows the car to do the 0-100km/h sprint in just 7.8 seconds. Not bad for a small convertible. While it showcases relatively sporty figures, the engine remains quite fuel efficient too, returning 7.4L/100km in fuel consumption in manual form (7.9L/100km with the automatic DSG gearbox), and emits just 173grams of CO2 per kilometre (184g CO2/km with the DSG).

The 2011 Volkswagen Eos is still also available with the 2.0-litre TDI 103kW turbo diesel engine, but all the new models see the addition of new 17 inch alloy wheels, Vienna leather interior with heated front seats, and a range of new exterior colour options.

Pricing for the 2011 Volkswagen Eos remains unchanged from the just-superseded version; $46,990 for the Eos 103TDI and $48,990 for the Eos 155TSI, excluding on-road costs.
