2012 Geneva Motor Show: 2013 Vw Golf GTI Cabriolet is incredibly hot

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 8, 2012

Deliveries will start in September for the GTI version of the new Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet that was recently unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. However, Volkswagen will begin taking orders this July. This drop-top is the most powerful to have ever come from Volkswagen. It is the company’s first GTI Golf convertible and it has an output of 207bhp/207lb ft.

It can accelerate from zero to 62mph in 7.3sec and it can continue on to hit a top speed of 147mph (146mph with DSG). VW asserts that it has a fuel consumption of 37.2mpg and has CO2 emissions of 177 g/km. In comparison, the tin-top version of this car returns 38.7mpg and emits 170g/km of CO2. Opening the hydraulically operated cloth roof takes 9.5 seconds and it could be operated even up to speeds of 18mph.

The features on VW’s hot cabriolet car are similar to those of the standard GTI’s such as its red-rimmed radiator grille, GTI bumpers, rear diffuser and 17-inch ‘Monza’ alloys, which are covered in 225/45 rubber.

Its other features include tartan sports seats as well as a leather-trimmed steering wheel. When the roof is down, the Golf GTI cabriolet’s boot can be as big as 250 liters, which makes it the leader in its class. The Mini convertible has only half this figure. The 2013 Vw Golf Cabrio is expected to be more expensive; however, the exactly pricing details have yet to be released.
