End of the road for Volkswagen Eos, Routan

Volkswagen today announced significant changes to most of its North American lineup while tolling the bell for the Eos cabriolet and Routan minivan.

In the U.S., for the last production year of the Eos, the Sport trim is replaced for 2015 with the Final Edition, which offers added value at the mid-level trim with 18” Vicenza wheels as well as unique Cornsilk Beige and black two-tone Vienna leather. Canadian availability has yet to be confirmed, though.

Meanwhile, the low-selling Routan won’t even be offered in 2015.
