The latest addition to Volkswagen's Golf Cabriolet range - the GTI - is now available to buy in the UK.

With prices starting at £29,310 on the road and rising to £30,610, the GTI is the top model of the Golf Cabriolet range and is packed full of new Volkswagen car parts.

These include a bespoke rear diffuser, framed by a chrome tailpipe on either side, and 18-inch alloy wheels as standard.

Under the hood, the car boasts a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine - the same as the one found in the GTI hatchback.

This can be paired with either a standard six-speed manual gearbox or an optional six-speed dual-clutch DSG gearbox.

According to the German carmaker, the roof on the Golf GTI Cabriolet can be folded away in around nine and a half seconds, and this can be done even while travelling at speeds of up to 18 mph.
