VW Golf Cabriolet gets new engines & bumpers

Despite the Mk7 Golf being on sale for two years, VW is trying to keep the Mk6 Cabriolet fresh with some small tweaks

VW Golf Cabriolet

Volkswagen has introduced a refreshed version of its Mk6 Golf Cabriolet – despite the Mk7 hatchback going on sale way back in 2013. The four-seater soft-top receives some styling upgrades and improved fuel efficiency, and will be on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Outside, the subtly upgraded front and rear bumpers and side sills have a sportier look, while inside the Golf gets the updated media infotainment system lifted from the standard Golf and new Passat.

Further enhancements are the six new exterior paint options, six new wheel designs and a new red option for the soft-top. As well as new designs for the cloth and leather seats inside, a new steering wheel will also feature.

Best convertibles on the market

The same four turbo petrol and two diesel engines will be available, but they’ve been uprated to make them Euro6 compliant. Petrol engines see average improvements of 7.5mpg, whereas diesel engines have been boosted by an average 2mpg across the range. The most efficient unit is the 109bhp 2.0-litre TDI with promised figures of over 65mpg and emissions as low as 109 g/km.

The car will be on display alongside the current Mk7 Golf and all-new Tiguan SUV at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this month. The refreshed Cabriolet will be made to order from November and prices will be revealed in due course, but expect a slight increase over the current car’s £22,540 list price.
