High-rise suc­cess

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Front Page -

IN a scene that would be at home in a sci-fi movie, the new 2011 Volk­swa­gen Golf Cabrio is lifted into one of two stor­age tow­ers, each hold­ing 400 ve­hi­cles, at Volk­swa­gen’s Au­tostadt cus­tomer re­cep­tion cen­tre in Wolfs­burg, Ger­many. The soft-top Cabrio will be back in the front line in Aus­tralia later this year — tipped to be here just in time for spring. It will be sold along­side the hard-top Eos con­vert­ible. The Golf’s elec­tric roof is claimed to raise in just 9.5 sec­onds, even when the car is be­ing driven at up to 30km/h.
