By Jeremy BennettIt's still early days in the lifespan of the latest Golf convert­ible with Blue-Motion technology, so the 427 registrations to the end of September this year cannot be compared accurately with previous performance. However, against competitors like the Renault Megane CC, Peugeot 308CC and Audi A3 convertible, Volk­swagen is confident enough to pronounce one advantage that will set it on the road to success. When asked why a customer would choose this car, a spokesman said: "It's a convertible Golf. Or 'the Golf among convertibles' as the Germans would say." The Golf is as much as a car for the masses as exists in the market, particularly one that is mainstream and yet aspirational (I should know, I once owned one) thanks to its continuous evolution and long-standing GTI pedigree.In a showroom the salesman has a long list of USPs in their armoury: the long heritage of soft tops, competitive pricing and you cannot always put a price on the comfort of high build quality, particu­VW counts on the 'Golf factor' for convertibleDriven VW Golf SE 1.6 TDI Convertible - on sale nowlarly in a car with more moving parts than the average saloon. And the roof deserves special mention as the car has been subjected to major reinforcements to ensure safety. The car comes with a rollover protec­tion system, active whether the hood is open or closed and activates at the slightest hint of a roll or impact. Roof supports extend in less than 0.25 seconds to provide additional protection. And the hood opens in just 9.5 seconds at travel speeds of up to 18mph. It doesn't impinge on boot space when retracted and as it's multi-layered you're adequately protected from the elements.The predicted best-sellers, and each due to account for around 20% of overall sales, will be the SE 1.6-litre TDI BlueMotion Technology 103bhp and the SE 1.4-litre TSI 120bhp due later this year.There are a number of finance offers, for private/fleet buyers.
