More details

Making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 1979, the soft top Golf was offered in most countries as the GLi with a 1588cc GTi engine and stiffer suspension, alongside the GLS which had the 70bhp 1457cc unit. The GLi convertible was upgraded with the 1.8 GTi engine in 1982 and the smaller petrol lump was replaced by the 1595cc carburettor unit in 1983. 

Of course, the Mk2 Golf replaced the Mk1 in 1984, but the cabriolet version kept the beautifully retro lines of the classic original Golf for much longer. However, in 1988 there was an attempt at modernisation when moulded bumpers, integrated front and rear spoilers and sill and wheel arch extensions were added.

Spec levels were improved in 1990 and for the first time, a hydraulically operated power hood became an optional extra.
