Volkswagen has applied some minor update to the 2016 Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet, which will be shown at the 2015 Frankfurt International Motor Show.

The updated, Mk6 Golf-based model can be distinguished by a sportier front bumper, new side sills and sporty accents on the rear bumper. There are also six new exterior colours and wheel designs, along with an additional soft-top colour.

Inside, there is a new steering wheel, trim elements as well as new designs for the cloth and leather seats.

Also new on board are the Composition Colour and Composition Media radio/infotainment systems. In Europe, the new infotainment system brings Car-Net, featuring Guide & Inform and App Connect smartphone integration to the Golf Cabriolet.

Guide and Inform allows the use of internet-based information channels, which include Online Traffic Information, News, the Vehicle Status Report and Weather. In addition, drivers can discover restaurants, museums or cinemas in unknown surroundings or access information on free parking spaces in car parks and integrate them in the optional Discover Media navigation system’s route guidance.

The 2016 Golf Cabriolet also gets a range of uprated engine and switched to the Euro 6 emission standard. Its petrol line up range from a 77kW 1.2 TSI to a 162kW 2.0 TSI, while diesel engines consist of an 81kW 2.0 TDI and a 110kW 2.0 TDI.

The updated 2016 Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet will likely arrive in Australia in the 2nd half of next year.
