Volkswagen has brought along to Geneva the R Cabriolet version of its well known hatchback. The new convertible version of the sixth-gen Golf stood right beside the Golf VII family (hatchback, estate, GTI) which is not an every-day sight to see.

The Golf VI-based R Cabriolet features an exclusive 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine that develops no less than 265 HP – 195 kW. All that juice goes to the wheels thanks to a 6-speed DSG transmission that helps the hot cabrio sprint from 0 to 100 Km/h (62 mph) in 6.4 seconds all the way to an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

On the styling side, the Golf VI R Cabriolet showcases new features like the chrome-tipped exhausts, side sill extensions, LED daytime running lights and bi-xenon headlights. Customers can also opt for 18- to 19-inch wheels that work perfectly with the vehicle’s lowered suspension.

The interior of the ride reveals four individual sport seats and a fully electric insulated top which can be raised in 11 seconds and lowered in 9.5s at speeds of up to 29 km/h (18 mph).

The Golf VI-based R Cabriolet is expected to hit the European dealershops this spring.
