In official Euro NCAP crash tests, the Eos was awarded four stars out of a possible five, average rather than class-leading. In addition to a strong windscreen surround, in the event of the car rolling over, with the roof down, rear roll bars will pop up in 0.25 seconds. Safety features include dual front, side and curtain airbags, electronic stability programme, ABS and Isofix child seat mounting points.
All cars have an immobiliser and remote central locking.
With the roof up there's an adequate amount of bootspace and more than enough room for the weekly shop, but it's not exceptional. However, the boot area is flawed - the shape of the opening requires you to lean into the boot slightly, which is awkward, and with the roof down, items can get trapped underneath. It needs to be raised again to remove larger items, which is annoying and time consuming.
Vauxhall's TwinTop raises the folded roof slightly at the push of a button, to solve this problem. The roof itself is an exquisite piece of precision engineering and folds neatly away. It does take around 25 seconds though - which can seem much longer in a sudden downpour.
