Volkswagen confirm return of Golf Cabrio in 2011

Last week, VW confirmed that the Golf Cabrio would return in 2011 with a brand new version of the iconic model. Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen made and announcement that the 2011 VW Golf Cabrio will enter production next year at the company’s plant in Osnabruck.

While no details of the new Cabrio have officially been released yet, it’s expected to be a soft top, just like its predecessors. With the Golf Cabrio in production, 1,800 jobs will be created at Volkswagen’s Osnabruck plant by the end of next year.

In terms of engines, the new rag-top Golf will most probably offer the same choices as the hatchback. This means it should receive both petrol and TDI diesel engines. As far as the top of the line performance model’s go, no details have been revealed. However, a 2011 VW Golf GTI Cabrio seems very likely as does a GTD model.

Check back as we bring you more details and specs on the future 2011 VW Golf Cabrio, as they become available.
