VW has released the Golf Cabriolet Karmann special edition in Germany, which is available to order at a starting price of €27,275 ($37,255). As the name suggests, the limited production Golf is a tribute to coach-building company Karmann, bought by Volkswagen in 2009.
The car features the Karmann logo on the front fenders, as well as subtle details like the 17-inch “Porto” alloy wheels, chrome surrounds on front fog lamps and chrome bars on the upper and lower grille.
On the inside, the Golf Cabriolet Karmann sports black Alcantara on the center part of the front seats, “Catch Up” fabric in “Sioux” color on the lateral seat supports, and leather-wrapped steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake lever with gray stitching. There’s also chrome trim in the cockpit, dark gray door inlays in brushed aluminum and “Karmann” lettering on the door sill plates.
The model’s standard equipment includes Park Pilot, “Premium” multifunction display, RCD 210 radio, center armrest with storage and wind deflector.
The VW Golf Cabriolet Karmann is offered with the entire range of diesel and gasoline engines from the regular Golf Cabriolet, ranging from 105PS to 160PS. The entry-level model fitted with the 105PS 1.2-liter TSI engine starts from €27,275 ($37,255).
