Advance sales of the Golf GTI Cabriolet begin

Following its big reveal in Geneva, Volkswagen has launched the new Golf GTI Cabriolet model in Germany this week.

Powered by the same 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine as the hatchback, the Cabriolet has 155 kW (210 hp) and 280 Nm of torque to play with, and comes with a six-speed manual or optional six-speed dual-clutch DSG gearbox. The sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes 7.3 seconds and top speed is 237 km/h (147 mph), while average fuel consumption works out at 7.6 litres per 100 kilometres (DSG: 7.7 l/100 km).

Prices start at € 31,350 for a manual-equipped car, but that figure rapidly rises when you add such goodies as DSG and the 18-inch Detroit alloy wheel upgrade. Other countries in Europe will have to wait until the second half of the year before they can receive the Cabriolet.
