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

    Fully-loaded, big-hitting diesel CLS shows the potential perils of ticking too many options boxes on your order form. A good car with a bad suspension combination.

    Super saloon deploys four-wheel drive to improve every facet of its driving experience. Faster and more capable than any, and more exciting than most, of its celebrated predecessors

    More power and an intoxicating soundtrack have breathed new life into our love affair with the biggest, baddest Range Rover Sport variant

    The new Vantage has been developed as a Porsche 911 beater, and our first taste on UK roads suggests it can live up to that bold claim
