Volkswagen Cabrio for sale
Few cars blend a unique aesthetic with familiar logistics as much as the Volkswagen Cabrio. A convertible variation on the Volkswagen Golf, the compact car is often referred to as the Volkswagen Golf Mk3 Cabrio. Additionally, the two-door convertible is the predecessor to the Volkswagen Cabriolet, which was itself a variation on the Volkswagen Rabbit. However, finding new and used Volkswagen Cabrio for sale can be challenging, as the model was only available from 1994 until being discontinued in 2002.
Features of the Volkswagen Cabrio
Introduced in 1994 for the 1995 model year, the Volkswagen Cabrio was designed with the specifications and features of the Volkswagen Golf Mk3. The significant difference between the two vehicles was the body, with the Volkswagen Cabrio being the convertible version of the hatchback. Losing about 130 pounds from the original model, the Volkswagen Cabrio was a much sportier vehicle than the traditional Volkswagen Golf. The car came standard with a five-speed manual transmission, although a four-speed automatic upgrade was also available. Other options available for the vehicle included leather interior and metallic paint. The Volkswagen Cabrio also received a subsequent upgrade with the arrival of the fourth-generation Volkswagen Golf Mk4.
Comparable models to the Volkswagen Cabrio
Finding a Volkswagen Cabrio for sale is not always an easy task. The vehicle was short-lived, and owners typically have a loyalty to the fun and sporty car. Thankfully, the list of competitors for the two-door convertible is not short. Vehicles that share a similar price range and feel include the Chevrolet Camero, Pontiac Firebird or the Mazda Miata. Additionally, with the specifications identical to the Volkswagen Golf, it is typically considered a viable option if the drop-top is not a deal-breaker.
