The upgraded model sees the addition of plenty of standard equipment, including new 18-inch alloy wheels, and an updated media system with a 6.5-inch screen that includes satellite navigation and acts as a display for the standard reverse-view camera. That system includes a 30 gigabyte hard drive that is used for the navigation and acts as a music storage device, too.
Other new additions include two-tone "Nappa Cool leather" upholstery, which is designed to reflect some heat from the sun so your backside doesn't get burnt upon entry, as well as bi-xenon headlights with cornering function and LED daytime running lights. Front and rear parking sensors are also standard.
The car remains powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder engine with 118kW of power and 240Nm of torque. The six-speed manual option has been dropped, with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic now standard (that's been the case for several months).
The price has gone up, inching the Golf Cabriolet towards where the Eos once sat. The Golf Cabriolet Exclusive costs $43,990 plus on-road costs, where the existing 118TSI was a $40,390 plus costs proposition with the auto 'box.
