Volkswagen's Golf Cabriolet has a history, in this country at least, mostly defined by the hormonal and angry field hockey players who drove them. Thanks to its roll hoop it earned a nickname used by countless high school and college kids: Bitch Basket. The new Golf GTI Cabriolet swaps the bitchy attitude for a bitchin' 200-horsepower turbo-four.
Last year brought the return of the hoop-less Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet, which is a visual copy of the normal Golf sans-top. Now the new GTI Cabriolet mimics the hard-top GTI top-to-bottom. Ok, not top.
