VW Golf 6 Cabrio from 2012 ? image

After we announced the rumors about an Vw Golf CC, Auto Express magazine announced that VW could reveal in 2012 a new Golf 6 Cabriolet based on the Golf 6. Most probably the new Golf Cabrio will compete against Ford Focus CC and Peuget 308 CC.

The engine lineup should mirror that of the hatch, with four new petrol units ranging from 80hp (60kW) to 160hp (118kW), and two diesels developing 110hp (81kW) and 140hp (103kW) respectively. A 240hp (179kW) GTI model should also be available.

The car will be able to put on its multilayered roof in less than 10 seconds – the retracting mechanism will work at a maximum speed of 30 km.

    These are definitely "chick" cars and I love them. I drive a '99 VW Cabrio Convertible, but if this picture is the final thing I'm disappointed. One thing that always sets these cars apart from other convertibles is the roll bar across the top. I was hoping that they would keep that true to form but it looks like they didn't. Now, in my opinion, it looks like every other small convertible car on the road.
    Please tell me you'll re-think and give us the option of a roll bar!!!

      it most likely will have something like the bmw or volvo where the roll bar pops out from behind the rear seat head rests when the car is in a crash with the top down

    I agree with Ann. The roll-bar really separated it from other convertibles in terms of looks. Volkswagen might be thinking it looks too old-fashioned. They look great on the PT Cruiser though, so I'm sure VW could do a good job of making it look great. I own a 2000 VW Cabrio and I love the roll-bar, it's fun to sit on. :)

    Don't hold your breath. Volkswagen says they have no plans to make this for the U.S.!

      :D Then that means mine will stay the newest here and remain special! Score!

    Saw a white one with a German plate on the back of a transporter today! Fine looking car.
