It will be available with a choice of three engines, a 2.5-liter unit with 170 hp, VW’s familiar 2.0-liter TDI with 140 and a range-topping 2.0-liter turbo unit, with 200 hp - the engine from the MK V Golf GTI. The latter is also available with a six-speed dual-clutch DSG gearbox.

In the US, its main rivals are the Mini Cooper Convertible, as well as the Fiat 500C - it starts off at $24,995 for the base 2.5-liter-engined car, while the diesel-engined version costs from $27,895, rising to $32,395 for the range topping version, which comes loaded with kit, including a full-leather-clad interior (steering wheel, shifter, dashboard and door trims), sports seats, touchscreen infotainment system coupled to a high-end audio setup, 18-inch alloys and an auxiliary instrument cluster.
