2011 VW Golf Cabriolet - Web Exclusive

Volkswagen will use the occasion of the 81st Geneva International Motor Show in March to present the new Golf Cabriolet.

Feb 23, 2011

The four-seater has an innovative electro-hydraulic soft-top that opens in just 9.5 seconds. The styling follows that of its hard-top three-door counterpart, but has a new rear section, lower profile roof line and a more raked front windshield frame.

Standard safety features include an automatically deployed roll-over bar, front airbags, side head/thorax airbags, knee airbag for the driver and ESP.

The new Golf is one of the quietest convertibles available thanks to the new soft-top. The roof can be opened or closed while driving at speeds up to 18mph.

European buyers will have a choice of six turbocharged direct-injection engines, whose output ranges from 105hp to 210hp. Four of the gasoline engines (TSI) and one diesel (TDI) are available with the DSG dual-clutch transmission; while three are available with energy-saving BlueMotion Technology.

The new 105hp Golf Cabriolet 1.6 TDI with BlueMotion only consumes 53mpg US (equivalent to 117g/km CO2).

In Germany, advance sales begin immediately. No date has been announced for US sales at present.

Less is more. Keep it simple. Go for an OEM look. Ice Sorsongsermkul isn't hearing any of that. In fact, he's gone completely the opposite direction with his RX-7, with a spec list that reads like a "who's who" of the tuning industry.
