Article by Christian A., on December 21, 2013

Volkswagen announced the new Golf Cabriolet Karmann, a special edition of its open top vehicle named after the legendary auto manufacturer Wilhelm Karmann GmBH. Priced at 27,725 Euros in Germany, the new 2014 Golf Cabriolet Karmann comes with the Karmann logo on the front fenders, 17-inch Porto alloy wheels, but also chrome surrounds on the front fog lamps and air intake grilles.

Inside, the center panels of the front seats are upholstered in black Alcantara, while the steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake grip are wrapped in high quality leather and fitted with gray stitching. Moreover, a chromed trim is found on the cockpit, while dark gray door inlays in brushed aluminum round off the stylish overall look.

The 2014 Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet Karmann comes as standard with Park Pilot, multifunction display "Premium", Radio RCD 210, center armrest with storage, wind deflector and door sill plates with the inscription "Karmann". According to Volkswagen, the Golf Cabriolet Karmann can be ordered with fuel-efficient engines developing from 105 PS (77 kW) to 160 PS (118 kW). Pricing for the Golf Cabriolet Karmann 1.2 TSI (77 kW / 105 PS) starts at €27,275.

Front end: Seen from the front, this cabriolet is obviously a classic Golf. Nonetheless, the cabriolet has a much sportier look from this perspective, as a result of the swept-back windscreen. A particularly dynamic image comes about when the Cabrio is requested with the optional bi-xenon headlights. In this case, the daytime running light formed by 15 LEDs is automatically incorporated in the double headlight housing.

Rear: The smoked LED rear lights were adjusted from the three-and five-door Golf. Naturally, designers and engineers overhauled the rear section itself. The cabriolet's bootlid expands low into the bumper, and it swoops far upward, making it easy to load baggage and other things. An exquisite chrome trim strip shapes a visual contrast between the lower edge of the soft top and the bootlid; this uninterrupted chrome strip stretches out up to the A-pillars.

Side profile: In side profile, 3 aesthetic traits of the cabriolet are particularly alluring to the eye: the more swept-back windscreen, the visually very small boot and the soft top incorporated in these style lines. At the point when the soft top is down, the Golf Cabriolet has an exquisite, broadened look. With the top up, the compact and fresh styling lines around the imaginary C-pillars and the boot convey the distinguishable trait of the past model and move it to modern times - spanning over a whole decade.

As standard, the Golf Cabriolet leaves Volkswagen's Osnabrück facility with weight-enhanced 16-inch steel wheels with appealing full wheel covers and 205 tires. Five diverse alloy wheels are likewise available as alternatives (one 16-inch, three 17-inch, one 18-inch).
