VOLKSWAGEN GOLF TDI BLUE MOTION TECHNOLOGY SE 1.6 TURBO DIESEL CABRIOLET finished in Pure White with Titan Black “Merlin” cloth upholstery. This is an absolutely beautiful example of the reliable, great to drive and cheap to own Golf Cabriolet range. This car has the 1.6 16 valve TDI CR Turbo Diesel engine with 105 bhp, coupled to a five speed manual gearbox. Thanks to the Blue Motion Technology package that includes a Start/Stop system it can return an amazing 64.2 mpg on the combined cycle, is a group 17 insurance (on the newer 1-50 scale) and costs just £30 per year to tax. Performance is lively too with a top speed of 117 mph and a 0-60 time of 11.7 seconds. The Golf Cabriolet has a highly capable chassis, just like its hatchback cousin. It offers well balanced handling, accurate steering and a comfortable ride quality. With its torquey Turbo Diesel engine providing strong acceleration without the need for high revs plus a slick gearchange too – this is a fantastic all rounder on the road. There is plenty of space for front seat occupants, the rear seats might be a bit tighter for taller people but children or smaller adults will be comfortable enough! The boot is a pretty good size for a convertible and unlike some vehicles is not affected at all by dropping the roof (which takes less than 10 seconds by the way – much quicker than many other convertibles!) The rear seats split/fold to accommodate longer items when necessary. There are a few handy user friendly features fitted, such as – a sliding front centre armrest with integral storage, two front cupholders, lockable and cooled glovebox, front door bins, rear passenger storage tray, drivers lower storage box, 12V power sockets front and rear plus one in the boot, front map reading lights, illuminated vanity mirrors, front footwell illumination, plus height adjustable front seats. Although the Golf Cabriolet was never tested by Euro NCAP, the hatchback model gained a top rated five star score so this should prove to be a very safe vehicle. It comes with loads of safety equipment as standard, including – driver and passenger airbags (with passengers de-activation switch), side airbags, drivers knee airbag, ISOFIX child seat mountings on the rear seats, day running lights, high beam assist, active roll-over protection system, ABS brakes and ESP stability and traction control. Reassuring stuff to know when you’ve got the nearest and dearest on board! This SE model is not short of goodies either, spec includes – “Climatronic” dual zone climate control air conditioning, power hood, electric windows all round, electric/heated mirrors, trip computer, power steering, cruise control, 17 inch “Porto” alloy wheels, automatic headlights and wipers, auto-dimming rear view mirror, front and rear parking sensors, Bluetooth hands free phone system and its original remote control VW RCD 310 RDS stereo/CD player with DAB reception, auxiliary MP3 connector socket and “Multi Device Interface” USB port.

This Golf Cabriolet has an excellent pedigree. It was supplied new by Ventura Park VW of Tamworth to a lady from Redditch, then was subsequently purchased by a gentleman from Crewe in September 2015 who has owned the car ever since. There is a full service history with five stamps in the book, four from main VW dealers and one from an independent garage. Together with the MOT records this service history confirms the very low mileage of just over 22,000 beyond doubt and also proves that the car has received proper maintenance throughout its life. It is presented in virtually immaculate condition throughout, drives like new and looks stunning in its gleaming white paintwork with contrasting black hood and interior. It is set off externally by the sporty alloys and LED rear lights, Mercedes style door mirror integrated side indicators, plus the chrome waistline trim and front grille inserts. The interior is enhanced by the nice to hold leather rimmed steering wheel, gearknob and handbrake grip, stylish metallic effect dashboard and door inlays, chrome plated touches on the door handles, steering wheel, gearknob, plus the instrument dial and air vent surrounds. If you are looking for a high quality convertible with minimal running costs and a comfortable drive – the Golf TDI 1.6 Cabriolet should be top of your list. With this cars ideal two private owner; full service history provenance backing up the tiny mileage, plus its generous SE spec, amazing condition and trendy white paintwork – I really don’t think you will find a superior example anywhere in this price bracket. It would have retailed new for over £22,000 so bearing in mind how well Golf’s hold their price, this is fantastic value now at only £9,995!
