Discontinued 2016 VW Eos Komfort
We’d like to say it’s time to say goodbye to a beloved model, but we know a niche when we see it. The Eos never met with much popularity here in the States, or we wouldn’t be talking about a model that’s making one last go at dealerships before taking a graceful exit. Still, it’s hard to see the now discontinued 2016 VW Eos Komfort go. Some say the reason it never sold well is because of pricing, others because it wasn’t marketed well, but either way it had something to offer than to other model on the market has.
For those unfamiliar with the model, it is the only hardtop convertible with a power sunroof available in America. Soft top convertible have become the popular choice because many shoppers actually want a top that is obvious even when it’s up. If you’re driving a convertible, you want everyone to know you are, right? On the other hand, the hardtop looks sleek and sporty, not to mention being more durable. It also retracts in just 25 seconds, which means you can enjoy fresh air at a moment’s notice.

What’s easily the most noteworthy thing to notice about the 2016 Volkswagen Eos is the price drop. You may have noticed we started out by talking about the Komfort specifically, and that’s because there is no other trim level for the limited production model. With only a single option, the new starting MSRP of $31,995 is what you can expect, plus taxes and a destination fee. There aren’t packages or trim levels from which to choose, and the price represents a decrease of more than $4,000.
As can probably be expected for a model that is being discontinued, and reduced to one trim level, the features for the 2016 Volkswagen Eos have not changed from the previous model year. That’s right, no MIB II system is to be found here. What you will see is Bluetooth with audio streaming, touchscreen navigation, VW Car-Net features, dual-zone climate control, V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces and heated, 12-way power-adjustable front seats.
Production on the 2016 Volkswagen Eos ends in November, though there is no word on an exact amount of vehicles that will be made. Let’s just say, if you want to get in an Eos, the time is now.
