Volkswagen has released the first details about the facelifted 2011 Eos.

On the styling front, the convertible features redesigned bumpers, modified headlights, a revised grille, and LED taillights. Inside, the cabin boasts a new multi-function display and optional 'Cool' leather seats which reflect sunlight and heat. Tech goodies include Light Assist (which automatically switches between high- and low beams), Park Assist, and Keyless Access.

While the company is staying quiet on specifics, a variety of four-cylinder engines will be offered. The turbocharged petrol units produce 90 kW (121 hp / 122 PS) to 155 kW (208 hp / 210 PS), while the 2.0 TDI churns out 103 kW (138 / 140 PS. More importantly, the latter gains regenerative braking and start/stop technology which lowers fuel consumption to 4.8 l/100 km (49 mpg US).

The updated model will be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show and European sales are scheduled to begin in January.
