Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabriolet had its premier yesterday

Volkswagen presented yesterday the Golf GTI cabriolet version at the Worthersee. But the car on display is a concept and no details were revealed.
Even if the carmaker is silent, we assume that the production version of the Golf GTI Cabriolet will have a 2.0-liter TSI engine that will produce 210 PS and with this amount of power the car will be able to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 7.2 seconds. The top speed will be somewhere around 148 mph.
The fuel consumption will probably be around 37.6 mpg and the CO2 emissions will be 178 g/km.
There won't be a lot of differences between the cabriolet version and the hard-top GTI concerning the equipment. So the GTI cabrio will have the XDS limited slip diff and also the ESP Electronic Stabilization Program.
As mentioned above, the vehicle displayed in Worthersee is only a concept and of course the production version will be at least a bit different concerning the exterior.
