The first year the Cabrio had lower sales than expected, perhaps because VW overshot the market. Later models were lower priced, without a huge sacrifice in features.
The Cabrio embodies Volkwagen's fahrvergnugen philosophy; the ragtop is easily manipulated by one person, and the car corners beautiful, while providing a smooth, low ride.
