Volkswagen convertible. First introduced in 1995 as a replacement for the Cabriolet, the Cabrio's target market was successful professional women who hadn't had a convertible as a teenager.

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.
