Video at Geneva: Volkswagen shows latest drop-top Golf

Volkswagen gave soft-top fans at the Geneva Motor Show something to look forward to with the new Golf Convertible. Looking similar to the Eos, the Golf is differentiated from its drop-top brother by the new fabric roof.

Having a fabric roof means that the new Golf Convertible is more practical, with its lighter weight and 250 litres of boot space even with the hood down. It's clever too, with the roof closing in just 9.5 seconds and operational up to 19mph.
