The much talked about 2012 Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet (Convertible) will finally be dropping its top at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show and it will be dropping it with a new electro-hydraulic drive that opens the Golf’s top in just 9.5 seconds.
Design wise the 2012 Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet reminds us of the stateside’s Eos, but there is a lot of Golf in when you look closely, especially with the GTI-inspired LED rear-lights. Volkswagen says that the 2012 Golf Cabriolet is one of the quietest convertibles today that can be opened or closed during speeds of up to 18.6 mph.
Power for the 2012 Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet ranges from a range of six turbocharged, direct-injection gasoline and diesel engines with output ranging from 105-hp to 210-hp. Five of the engines are available with dual-clutch transmissions and three with BlueMotion technology.
Advance sales of the 2012 Volkswagen Gold Cabriolet start in Germany tomorrow with all the features offered in the regular Golf… besides the sunroof of course. No word on stateside sales.
Check out the high-res gallery after the jump.
