Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet TSI [Car Review]

On a cool breezy Sunday.. there’s nothing like zipping around town with the top-down in a convertible. With the Golf Cabriolet, you get a four seater with a powerful 1.4 twincharged TSI engine, 7-speed DSG gearbox, and a roof you can drop in just 9 seconds. But on days when you want the roof up, you’ll also enjoy the comfort of a car with the quietest cabin in its class.
 
Anyone can look as swag in the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet!
Who's in for a ride with me now!?
 
 
Drivin' the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet is really easy. The ergonomic functions are easy to control and as the car isn't very big.. moving around on the road and parking is easy!
In addition.. the car has Power! It has what it takes to be a cabriolet!
 
 
Undiluted driving pleasure with the satisfying feeling of minimising the burden on the environment – it's all possible with the Golf Cabriolet. The powerful TSI engine is teamed up with a DSG gearbox to deliver low CO2 emissions. And ultimately that benefits not just the environment, but your wallet too. Thumbs up to this technology!
 
What's more!? The car has a "Park Assist" feature too!
It means that the car will park into the carpark lot that you've selected by itself.
Isn't that cool?
 
The functions on the dashboard are easy to control with simple designs which wouldn't make you go.. "Hey, which one to press!!?" Lol~!
 
The Radio-Navigation system has a colour TFT display for visualising maps clearly, an SD card slot for playing audio files, a built-in 30 GB hard drive as well as straightforward touchscreen operation.
 
 

Huge glove compartment in front of the front passenger seat.. and if you noticed there's black knob with a hole on it, it is actually for you to keep your things cool in the glove compartment. You can just turn the knob to create an opening for the cool air to enter to the glove compartment.
 
Lightings at the top.
 
A function to put the top down.
To put the down down, just press it down.
 
And to bring up the top, just pull the lever up!
By pressing the black button within the chrome lever, you would be able to bring both the side windows down.
 
Here's the side profile of the Golf Cabriolet.
 
Fronting the car.. there are LED lights which made the Golf Cabriolet looks even sportier.
 
And there are fog lamps on the bumper.
 
 
An impressive sight: the sports comfort seats with 'Vienna' leather upholstery are combined with 'Matte Chromium' inlays on the dashboard and door panelling to create a perfect visual impression. The picture is completed by the chrome bezel surrounds on the air vents and the instrument cluster dials.
 
 
A zoom-out of the interior.
 
A view with the backseats of the cabriolet.
You can see that leg-rooms for the rear passengers are pretty reasonable despite that the car is small.
 
With the top up this time!
 
It looks as good too!
 
 
So what about the boot space!?
 
 
You would be surprised that it is quite big!
 
 
The Golf Cabriolet has an especially sporty and elegant design at the rear. This is thanks to the dark-tinted LED tail lights, which mirror the dynamic character of the Golf Cabriolet perfectly. The sense of dynamism is further emphasised by the precise styling lines of the boot lid and rear bumper.
 
 
 
Hope you guys enjoyed the blogpost!
 
 

 
Here's a video I've done too.. Enjoy~!
