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.
