Volkswagen officially unveiled the new Golf GTI Cabriolet, a model scheduled to hit the stage of this year’s edition of the Geneva Motor Show.
The German model packs a powerful 2.0-liter engine capable to deliver 210 horsepower and 280 Nm of torque with a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 7,3 seconds before hitting the top speed of 237 km/h.
The four-cylinder turbocharged engine is coupled either to a six-speed manual or dual-clutch DSG transmission and returns a fuel consumption of 7,6 liters/100 km and CO2 emissions of 177 g/km.
The new Golf GTI Cabriolet uses a fabric top able to open in 9,5 seconds and close in 11 seconds when used at speeds up to 30 km/h.
In terms of appearance, the new model gains new 17-inch alloy wheels with 225/45 tires while larger 18-inch alloys are available as well. A honeycomb grille, fog lights and a rear bumper with an air diffuser complete the exterior appearance of the new Golf.
“The Golf GTI Cabriolet goes on sale in the UK in the second half of the year. Prices and further specification details will be announced closer to the on-sale date,” adds the car maker.
