I really don't know why, but Volkswagen and in fact a lot of other German automakers have developed a strong love for facelift. The company that once built a new Golf just for the fun of it has now pushed out small cosmetic updates for the Polo, Scirocco and soon the Jetta as well.
Will the Eos convertible get the same treatment? It might if VW's new logic works the way I think it does. Is developing a brand new model worth it from a volume point? No. Is it worth killing off? No, because the Eos is still the only hardtop convertible.

Taking that into account, here's what to expect. X-Tomi Design is responsible for the renderings and he decided the Eos needed GTI wheels, which it kind of does. Also new are the headlights from the Golf 7, with sharper outer design and soft U shapes defining the shape of the lenses.

So what about engines? Going from the bottom up the 1.4 TSI needs to get 125 PS, the 1.4 TSI with 160 PS will be replaced with a 2.0-liter TSI producing 180 PS and the 2.0 TDI will get 150 PS. Finally, the top-spec car will offer 220 PS.

Let's just wait and see if Volkswagen will confirm our wildly speculative numbers with actual production specs.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
