Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet review

£18,325 - £39,520
Published: 13 Jan 2015


What is it like on the inside?

The cabin remains a solidly-built delight, which you’ll be able to show to the world less than 10 seconds after pressing the electric roof lowering button. The four-seat interior has decent room for all passengers, although it can feel a bit claustrophobic with the roof up: blame the thick canvas rear section. Refinement is impressive wherever you have the roof. 

The boot, inevitably, has a fairly narrow opening. The stubby tail only has room for a small lid, unlike the more open deck of the coupe-convertible VW Eos. Space is also 100 litres down on the hatch, at 250 litres (the roof has to go somewhere), although it’s well shaped so you’ll be able to make maximum use of it.
