Hi All,

I was considering the name Eos and how it came to be associated with a car. Due to the Sun God, Eos and the cars lack of roof it seems appropriate but perhaps looking at the parts used it could have been called the "PassGo", since parts come from both the Passat and the Golf.

(Of course it will be in North America due to difference in branding).

Anyone else come up with some other ideas?

PS for those in the UK, tomorrow looks like a day where we can get the top down at last!

I am guessing your first guess is correct. When I first saw the car's name I thought of the Canon Eos Camera and was surprised.

Just because its standard means nothing, it's still miles better than the others out there like Renault, Vauxhall & Peugot equivalents and 'What Car' seems to agree. I must admit that its one of the nicest cars I have ever owned.

I'm sure you will feel the same, lets know what your intial impressions are.

Cheers

Yeah I agree with Gogg, an eos (any spec) wipes the floor with the competition! Guess you will have picked yours up by now Pete and will have been driving around all day! hope you are enjoying it and post some pictures for us!!! :D

Funny story with the name...

I went to test drive one and ask the sales guy if "I could drive an E O S"... I thought it was three letters and not a word! Boy, I looked stupid. Thanks VWoA for NO Advertising... :p

Did the test drive convince you to buy one?

Test-drives in EOS cars should be banned.

There is really no such thing as an EOS test-drive.

I recommend driving all the competition first, then, give the EOS a try. Once you've driven the car-- especially with the top down-- you will feel that purchase isn't an option. So I believe that a "test-drive" of an EOS is more of an owner's "practise run".

:)

My EOS started with a drive by sighting of one in a dealer's lot. We stopped to check it out... and the sales guy said, "get in, lets go for a ride. I'd really like to hear how the car compares with your Honda."

<sigh>

Hours of research later, and my "practice run" ended up bumping the honda out of our garage. "Out with the old..." I always say. ;)

Amen! I can honestly say the same thing... Drove it... then told the wife "I can't go back without leaving with the car!" :rolleyes:

Oh, and I think consumer reports called the Eos a Passat rear (to handle a large roof in the trunk) and a jetta front. But hey... nobody's complaining. just sharing.

Who ever is interested in finding out more about the goddes Eos and Greek Mythology, try the following links

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eos
http://thanasis.com/eos.htm

In brief,

Eos ("dawn") was, in Greek mythology, the Titan goddess of the dawn, who rose from her home at the edge of Oceanus, the Ocean that surrounds the world, to herald her brother Helios, the sun.

She was also know to seduce young men !!!

Funny, When I use my camera to shoot my car, It's a eos20d shooting the eos2.0t...hmm something to think about;)
Funny you should say that, I was thinking about looking at the Canon EOS camera just because it bore the same name.
