Britain’s lovely summer is the perfect time to sell open-top cars! And this year there’s no shortage of new and exciting models.
Volkswagen just released the pricing details of the new Golf Cabrio as the order books open, but the car won’t reach customers until September, or at the end of summer. That’s a bit odd, but anyway, the Cabrio with its folding fabric roof is a fine vehicle all year round.
Pricing for Golf Cabrio ranges between £20,720 to £26,595. What all models have in common include active rollover protection system is employed, ABS, ESP and front and side head/thorax airbags, 50:50 split/folding rear seat and Easy-Entry function ensure maximum practicality and good access to the rear, and a 250 liter boot.
The new Golf Cabriolet will be available with a choice of three engines: a 1.2-litre TSI 105 PS, 1.4-litre TSI 160 PS and a 1.6-litre TDI 105 PS. A further petrol and two diesels will be offered later in the year. DSG automatic transmission will be offered while BlueMotion Technology modifications will be applied to the diesel engines to ensure high efficiency and low emissions.
Three trim levels will be offered – S, SE and GT – and all will have a high level of standard specification, featuring 16-inch alloy wheels, and Bluetooth among other items. Moving up to SE, features such as 2Zone climate control, cruise control, parking sensors and automatic lights are added, while at the top of the range, GT adds a number of new highlights including sports suspension, Alcantara upholstery and 18-inch alloy wheels.
