More bling for VW's Eos
21 August 2006

VW has blinged up its Eos for the Californian showcase of design and restoration, Pebble Beach.

With suspension cut down by an inch, H&R springs and 20inch multispoke wheels, the Highway 1 design study certainly has visual impact. Providing the power is VW’s 3.2-litre V6, transmitted via its DSG semi-automatic gearbox.

The interior has had a makeover too: piano black lacquer trim and unique leather upholstery are the highlights.

The car comes a month before VW launches the range-topping Eos, with that V6, in the US. You can order one in the UK now, with delivery in November. But none of the design study's features will make it onto the UK options list.

Our Verdict

Kia Cee'd

The Kia Cee’d is more than good enough to harry the opposition

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
