1993 Volkswagen Cabriolet Overview

For its final year in production, the Volkswagen Cabriolet was powered by a 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder engine that generated 94 hp. It was linked to a five-speed manual overdrive transmission; a three-speed automatic was available as an option.

New for 1993 was leatherette upholstery in the Base (Standard) model and an upgraded audio system; a CD player was available as an option. In addition, the Carat trim package of the previous year was rechristened the "Classic" package for 1993.

Standard features included power windows, power steering, power brakes, power exterior mirrors, alloy wheels, sports suspension, and a driver's-side front airbag. In addition, leather seats and air conditioning were standard on the Classic trim package.

Drivers noted that the Cabriolet was fun, quick, and handled well, although reliability could be spotty. While the cars got good gas mileage, repairs could be expensive. The top was easy to lower and raise, one driver noted, while others pointed out that the car is considered to be very collectible.
