Volkswagen Eos — TIMING CHAIN OR BELT?


| Home / Volkswagen / List of Volkswagen Eos Models without Timing Belt

The Volkswagen Eos is a convertible sports car manufactured by the German marque Volkswagen. It began production in 2006 and ceased to be marketed in 2015. It is considered the natural successor to the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet. However, the Eos is actually the successor to the Volkswagen Corrado, as the VW Eos is the first coupe with retractable hardtop of the brand since that model was discontinued in 1995.

Although many may think it is based on the VW Golf, the Volkswagen Golf is based on VAG’s PQ46 platform, shared with the Volkswagen Passat B6. Even so, the wheelbase of the model corresponds to that of a Golf V (PQ35 platform). The body of the Eos was designed entirely from scratch. The hood was an external design commissioned to Oasys (Open Air Systems GmbH).

The Eos had only one generation, but it did have a redesign in 2010 where the convertible also received a new range of engines – not all was good news, also withdrew the possibility of buying the sports car with a V6 engine. Throughout its life, the Eos was sold with TDI diesel and FSI, TSI and TFSI petrol/gasoline engines. All versions came with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, with options to equip a DSG gearbox that came as standard on the six-cylinder variants.

The Eos ended production in 2015 without a replacement as the Volkswagen Group reduced its vehicle fleet to cut costs. Among its alternatives were the Opel Astra TwinTop, the Ford Focus Cabrio or the Peugeot 308 cc.
