Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet Is Back!

Set for a public debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week, the new Golf cabriolet is based on the underpinnings of the latest MkVI Golf GTI.

The two-door four-seater cabriolet features an electrically operated canvas top, that can be raised or lowered in 9.5 seconds at speeds of up to 18mph. The newcomer does not have the permanent rollover hoop, like its predecessor had, which was last seen in 2002. Instead it features a pop-up system that is activated when the car detects it’s about to flip over.

Six powerplants are available for the new Golf Cabriolet. Four petrol engines range from 103bhp to 207bhp. Two diesel units range from 103bhp to 138bhp. Customers can choose between five and six-speed manuals or six and seven-speed DSGs(not offered on the 1.2 litre petrol and 1.6 litre diesel).

UK pricing has not confirmed yet, but will likely start from around £20,000.
