Here we have the first open-top GTI model within Volkswagen’s range, namely the Golf GTI Cabriolet, a model which is going to hit the showrooms this summer.
The new German model is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged unit capable to deliver 207 horsepower and 280 Nm of torque.
The four-cylinder engine is coupled to a standard six-speed manual transmission while a double-clutch DSG can be also ordered.
The new VW Golf GTI Cabriolet is able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 7,3 seconds before hitting the top speed of 235 km/h, no matter what’s your choice in terms of gearbox.
The fuel consumption of the convertible Golf GTI is rated at 7,6 liters/100 km while the CO2 emissions at 177 g/km. On the styling part, there are not too many things to point out, maybe only the new 17-inch alloy wheels fitted with 225/45 tires, revised interior trim and improved suspension.
We also have to remind you that the next generation of the German model is scheduled to debut later this year, most probably at the Paris Auto Show.
