Based on the current generation Golf, the Golf Cabriolet seats four and has an electric canvas roof. The canvas roof takes only 9.5 seconds to be raised or lowered and can be operated at speeds up to 18 mph. Unlike past Golf Cabriolets, the new one does away with a fixed central rollbar and instead gets a pop-up system that is similar to the Eos.
Speaking of the Eos, the Golf Cabriolet is smaller and will slot below it in the VW lineup. In Europe the VW Cabriolet will be powered by a range of diesel and gas engines. Sales will begin this summer in Europe. VW hasn’t announced when it will be offered in the U.S.
