      Ditto! They pretend the GTI isn't a Golf.

      Well hang on there. The Germans aren't exactly stressing the Golf relationship either anymore:


      No "Golf" badge anymore.

      I wish they'd kept the rollbar too. Its what set the Cabrio apart from other convertibles and the new one looks naked and boring without it.
      As an aside, I don't think of Cabrios as "girlie cars". If you want a compact convertible with some utility, its the only way to go, and I'll take one any day over the Eos. I'll just mention that most of the Jeep Wranglers I see are being driven by ladies, yet they avoid the girlie label.

      Although, I'm sure its added cost and complexity to the vehicle - the trade off might have been weight savings?

      dont you guys know that car makers dont listen to the 5% of you who want this or that?

      car makers listen to their CFO executives who give them pretty presentations and explain "this will make your wallet 3 times fatter"

      the engineers who design the hard work of the car just want to keep their jobs and dutifully say "although that wont work practically... yes i see your point and my team is currently working on making your design"

      why do the europeans get more options.. just go to www.volkswagen.co.uk.. look at how many versions of the golf they have... while we only get 3 golfs..... look at how many vans they have... we only get 1 ... which based on dodge caravan... so stupid.......i get the market for car like polo isnt there......... but why cant we replace ford fiestas and chevy sparks with the polo...

      im sure were not the only ones who want german engineered cars...

      I don't understand where everyone is getting the "it looks just like an eos" comments from. The mk6 golf cabrio looks nothing like an eos, at least to my eyes, and I have seen quite a few of them in person.
