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.

    I Love my VW Eos. This is my 2nd one my 2010 was my favor . After being almost payed off, it became gulp in water, I went to let my top back it wold no release Took to 2 VW Services to see what was wrong, after open the trunk underneath was logged in water the conv. top was corroded and modulars and very thing was destroyed, was told to get rid of it or just drive with no conv. top. the othe VW Service stated that it would cost anywhere between 8,000. to 10,000 for repair. That when I purchased the 2014 VW Eos. I was really happy because of the price they sold it to me for, I went back to get my 2010 back they state it was gone. Gone where? if no good what did they do with it. 2 weeks after I had the 2014 Eos, It rained had that day I get in my car to go to work and when I open the door water had leaked through were the conv. top goes back I took it to the shop they told I had to pay for service, Why do i have to pay when this was purchased like this. So they serviced the vehicle. w/o charge. It rained again still leaking took it back they had to order another part. What I don”t get is why they couldn”t have discounted me a better deal for a trade in. Because of the similarity with the water leaking in the car and they had no ideal how this happens. Now I am driving My VW Eos but not as happy as with the 1st. But with both vehicles I get so many compliments, I have the 2014 since 2017 and I am still getting compliment rom kids young adults women and men, they are just so amazed at this car, It like that a hard top where does the go, I have to show them how it work there likes WOWOOOO! did”t no VW made a car like that. smile.
