VW premiered its brand-new convertible coupe, the Eos, which sports a five-section glass retractable roof. It will hit the streets in the spring of 2006 in Europe and about a year later in the U.S. To protect occupants during a crash with the roof down, VW developed "head-thorax" airbags that unfold horizontally and vertically to cover the entire length of the side window. The concept for this car was first shown only 18 months ago, at the 2004 Geneva Auto Show.
