2001 Volkswagen Cabrio Overview

For 2001, Volkswagen expanded the Cabrio line by adding the GLX, a high-end trim package that joined the base GL and mid-level GLS packages. All three versions were powered by a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, 115-hp engine that has been the workhorse for the Cabrio since its introduction in 1996. It's linked to a five-speed manual overdrive transmission, which is also standard equipment for all three trim packages. A four-speed automatic transmission is available as an option.

The value-priced GL package includes air conditioning, power door locks, anti-lock brakes, a manually operated drop top, an AM/FM/cassette stereo system, daytime running lights, and front and side airbags as standard equipment. The GLS adds power windows, cruise control, and heated seats, while the top-of-the-line GLX adds a power convertible top, leather seats, foglights, and new 14-inch wheels.

Drivers were impressed with the Cabrio's legroom, despite the fact that it's a small car. Other positive points cited by drivers were the car's sporty styling, handling, and safety features. But once again, as with the models for the previous few years, a number of drivers have complained about quality issues with the Cabrio, mostly with fit and finish items, though on occasion larger problems have surfaced.
