Ten Review

Is there space in range for a soft top Golf the successful Eos convertible that’s on the same chassis already Volkswagen certainly thinks so and hard not to warm to the latest in a line of open top Golf Available with a choice of six this is a major product and one that we’ll monitor quite some interest.

Well, did you miss it? The launch for the latest Volkswagen Golf mentions that this is the soft top Golf on sale the Mark 4 and if you lost track of the we’re now on iteration six. guessing that you probably and that’s largely because already offers an excellent convertible built on modern mechanicals called the Eos. the boffins at Wolfsburg have a latent need that the Eos satisfying. A need for a simpler, complex car without the Eos’ hard top roof. Most of us that the folding hard top was the way forward for cars in this but Volkswagen seems intent on back the clock and sticking tradition for the Golf by retaining the roof, doubtless spurred on by the big Audi has enjoyed with its top A3 Cabriolet.

Driving Experience

A fact Volkswagen rather kept its hat with the last Golf is that it was actually a facelifted 3 rather than an actual 4 which means its underpinnings that of a 1994 car. the step forward to a current Cabriolet is massive and, at slightly befuddling. This is based on the current Mark 6 which means multi-link front and rear and body that’s from another This comes courtesy of a window frame and structural to the underbody, side panels, and doors the rigidity benefits of are manifested in improved safety, and refinement. The engine line up no fewer than six, with a 1.2-litre TSI 105 PS, a 1.4-litre TSI 160 PS and a 105 PS TDI diesel for budget buyers. looking for some rather exciting engines will to consider the 1.4-litre TSI 122 PS, the 140PS TDI diesel and preferrably, the 2.0-litre TSI 210 PS unit of the GTI flagship model.

Design and Build

Volkswagen to distance the Golf from the Eos by that it’s 208mm and while this is true, a look at the cars shows as expected, both ride on the wheelbase and it’s the bigger end of the Eos (designed to accommodate the folding tin that accounts for much of the in length. By contrast, the tail end of the is almost shockingly pert, the result that with the roof stowed, there’s a 250 litres of luggage space Some recompense comes the 93 million miles of headroom on Build quality seems up to the Volkswagen standard which soft touch materials, metal trim inserts, mood lighting and silicon everything. The soft top features an exterior skin, as well as window and door seals. a heated rear windscreen and a clever feature when the is stowed. The upper side of the edge (the segment directly mates to the windscreen covers the entire top surface of the storage box, eliminating the for a tonneau cover. This that the roof can swing position in only 9.5 seconds and it can at speeds of up to 18mph.

Market and Model

The Golf is offered in the UK with a choice of levels — S, SE and GT — a GTI flagship variant. All enjoy a healthy dose of standard Although it’s a little for a definitive specification sheet, is mentioning 16-inch alloy that fully automatic operated soft top, DAB and Bluetooth. As customers would from any car in the Golf family, the will be equipped with serious safety equipment. includes an active roll-over system, ABS, ESP, all round and a driver’s knee The value proposition we’re to comment upon until releases some pricing but it to allow quite some between itself and the Eos if customers to be seduced by the hard top car.

Cost of Ownership

Engine of the award ceremonies have a little boring of late. It to be the case that the spoils shared around but it seems the Volkswagen Audi Group has a on this sort of thing and at the sort of power to efficiency many of its current engines can it’s perhaps no great The engines in the Golf Cabriolet are no and even the smallest entry-level unit has a lot to be said for it. It’s a engine which sounds underwhelming but it’s fitted a turbocharger which plumps the up agreeably yet in the hatchback version of the it manages 49.6mpg and emits Choose the entry-level diesel and get something cleaner and meaner although you’ll need to do the and figure out whether your mileage justifies the additional premium. The Golf Cabriolet has been well regarded by the market and given that been a while since buyers have been to get their hands on a nearly new top Golf, it’s a bombproof bet residual values are going to up very well.

The question that may niggle a when considering the Volkswagen Cabriolet is whether the arrow of evolution has temporarily been backwards. We already have the Eos but Volkswagen has chosen to launch a lighter, more affordable There is an argument to say that lighter and more affordable necessarily a retrograde step and clearly believes the market support that view. In the Golf Cabriolet looks good. The styling is sleeker any soft top Golf to date and the is unimpeachable. If Volkswagen can get the pricing it’s hard to see this car on its face. Get the pricing wrong, and this car could easily a curious sideshow attraction.
