Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabrio - UK Pricing Announced

The Golf GTI Cabrio made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show this march and is now available for purchase at VW dealerships across the UK. The car is exactly what one would expect after reading its name: it’s a Golf Cabrio with the GTI running gear underneath and the familiar 2-liter turbo engine with 210-hp. The powerplant delivers excellent performance, however the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) time is 7.3 seconds, which is 0.4 seconds slower than the GTI hatch, due to the cabrio’s higher overall weight - it has a top speed of 147 mph (235 km/h).

It sits at the top of the Golf Cabrio range, attempting to combine the driving pleasure of the Golf with the pleasure of open-air motoring. Over the standard cabrio it gets a full GTI-makeover, complete with new bumpers front and back, GTI grille, dual exhausts and GTI 'Monza Shadow' rims. On the interior it gets the flat-bottomed steering wheel of the normal GTI which is leather-clad, along with the handbrake lever and shift-knob.

The car is available for order now but deliveries are due in July, with prices starting from £29,310 for the manual version and rising to £30,610 for the DSG.
