GOLF CABRIO

Volkswagen has this week announced that its convertible Golf Cabrio will return in 2011, at the same time signalling the death knell for the Golf 5-based Eos convertible.

The news follows reports from around this time last year that suggested Volkswagen's purchase of the Karmann brand and its plant at Osnabruck could lead to the Cabrio's return.

The Golf Cabrio last appeared in the company's line-up as part of the Golf 3 range, although it benefited from a front-end Golf 4 update in 1999.

The Eos, replacing the Cabrio when the fifth-generation Golf arrived, had a similar styling update last month, getting Volkswagen's new letterbox grille and sharpened headlights.

Volkswagen has offered few details for the new Golf Cabrio, although it is expected to do away with the folding hardtop of the Eos, returning to the softtop style of its predecessors.

As with previous generations, the new Golf Cabrio will likely be all-but-identical to the Golf's two-door bodystyle from the ground up to the belt line and boot lid.

Production is set to begin next year at Volkswagen's Osnabruck plant in Germany.

The last vehicle to be produced by Karmann at Osnabruck was the Mercedes Benz CLK, which finished production in June last year.

Karmann and Volkswagen have a strong history together, thanks in particular to the iconic Beetle-based Karmann Ghia of the 1950s.

Previous generations of the Golf Cabriolet have been built by Karmann, and with the current generation Eos reaching the end of its life cycle, a new Golf Cabrio has seemed likely for some time.

Our renderings (above and top) offer a glimpse at how the new generation Golf Cabriolet might look.
