What features are available on a convertible VW Golf?

  • Dual-zone climate control.
  • DAB radio and multimedia screen to connect to phones.

The practicality of a VW Golf convertible

The VW Golf convertible isn’t just a fun car to drive. A well as personal enjoyment, it is also great for families. The car has four unique seats, each with its own seat belt, and is capable of seating four adults comfortably with respectable rear legroom. There is rear boot space of 250 litres as the roof folds down on top of the car instead of inside the boot, and the rear seats can be folded down for expanded storage. Depending on the model, the roof can be electrically folded down in less than 10 seconds. Depending on the specific engine, up to 1,400 kg can be towed behind it.

Safety features of the VW Golf cabriolet

The hatchback sibling of the 2009 to 2016 model year scored a full 5 stars on the EuroNCAP safety test, and the cabriolet version is based on that design. It also features body strengthening to compensate for the lack of a hard roof and ESP for added stability. In case of a rollover, protective bars pop up along with the driver and passenger airbags.

Is the VW Golf cabriolet an economical car to run?

Yes. Even if you get the mid-range 2.0-litre petrol engine, you’ll be averaging at least 65 miles to the gallon, making it competitive in its segment. With its low CO2 emissions, you will also be able to save on your next tax bill.
