2013 Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabrio priced from £29,310 in the UK

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 3, 2012

The starting price of the new Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabriolet with a six-speed manual gearbox is £29,310 while the seven-speed DSG version is priced from £30,610. The hot new cabriolet is powered by the same 207bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine that’s also used on the standard GTI model. With either gearbox, accelerating from zero to 62mph takes 7.3 seconds.

Meanwhile, the DSG variant has a top speed of 146mph while the manual-transmission car can reach up to 147mph. When it comes to combined fuel consumption figures, the manual offers 37.2mpg while the DSG one has 36.7mpg. The CO2 emissions level of the manual is at 177g/km while the DSG has 180g/km DSG.

The cabriolet has the same exterior features as the hatchback GTI with a set of 18-inch alloys, red-outlined front grille and a rear diffuser that has a chrome tailpipe on either side. The cabin seats have a cloth upholstery finish with leather offered as an option. Leather covers the multifunction steering wheel, handbrake and gear lever gaiter.

The usual contrast red stitching is also used. Just like on the standard Golf cabrio, the electrically operated roof could be folded away in only 9.5 seconds and can be operated at speeds up to 18mph. Volkswagen has started to take orders for the Golf GTI cabriolet. Deliveries will start this July.
