1999 Volkswagen Cabrio Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 10 reviews
1999 was a landmark year for Volkswagen, as the German automaker launched not one but three redesigned vehicles in North America. In addition to an updated Cabio, VW unveiled new looks for the Golf and Jetta. The goal, according to VW chairman Ferdinand Piech, was to increase the number of standard features in the cars, as well as their quality and value.
For the Volkswagen Cabio, the trademark fixed rollbar remained, but the front of the car was dressed up with a more aerodynamic look that took its cues from the redesigned Golf. The inside was updated as well, with new seat fabrics, trim and dash, and new controls for the radio and climate control system.
The same two trim packages were available as in the previous year -- the base-model GL and the more feature-laden GLS. Both were powered by a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, 115-hp engine that remained virtually unchanged from the previous year. It was linked to a five-speed manual overdrive transmission. A four-speed automatic overdrive transmission was available as an option.
Air conditioning and anti-lock brakes were added to the GL's list of standard features, which also included power door locks, front and side airbags, daytime running lights, an anti-theft alarm system, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo system. The GLS added a number of features, including power windows and leather seats. In addition, the GLS retained its powered convertible cloth top, while the top on the base model GL was manually operated.
While some drivers raved about the Cabrio's quality manufacturing, others were less impressed, noting that the vehicle was in and out of the shop, and sometimes for relatively sustainable repairs, such as windows, the AC system, and the convertible top. The car's handling and economy were still positive points with drivers.
