CAR GARAGE | Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet (2012) | Although Volkswagen is using a fabric top on the Golf, the four-cheater is one of the quietest of cabriolets. The results: the Golf Cabriolet actually sets new standards for acoustics in cabriolets. The soft top Itself consists of a linkage, a roof liner, insulating filler throughout and exterior cover layer. Perfection in aerodynamics: mounted Between the longitudinal frames of the top linkage are a total of 4 roof cross bows and the so-called front roof bow (the first large transverse element behind the windscreen frame). In turn, the soft top is joined to the roof bows fastened by screw-retention fabric strips. Consequently, even at higher speeds, the fabric roof does not fill with water. When the roof is stowed, the upper surface of the front roof bow covers the top surface of the storage box. The results: the standard fully-automatic elector-hydraulic top opens (9.0 seconds) and and Closes (11.0 seconds) faster. The top is operated from a central switch on the center console. Unlatching and latching of the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet's soft top is handled by an electromechanical locking system. It operates fully automatically.
