1995 Volkswagen Cabriolet Review

A good first convertible, safe with tame handling.

Reviewed by Automotive on


The 1995 Volkswagen Cabrio is a convertible with a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine paired with a standard, five-speed manual transmission or an optional, four-speed automatic transmission. The 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine on this car delivers 115 horsepower (hp) and 122 lb-ft of torque. Unfortunately, there is no V-6 engine option for this sporty car. Two outstanding features of this vehicle are the power convertible roof and the digital display.

What's New

This model year, Volkswagen added dual airbags, anti-lock brakes, and a 115 hp engine the list of standard features for the Cabrio.


Standard exterior features for the 1995 Volkswagen Cabrio include a rear lip spoiler, a body-colored grille, and body-colored front and rear bumpers. Black body side-moldings and rocker panel extensions are also standard. A power convertible roof, dual power remote heated mirrors, light tinted windows, and 14-inch wheels round out the list of standard exterior features for the Volkswagen Cabrio. Metallic paint and alloy wheels are available options for this convertible.


The 1995 Volkswagen Cabrio can seat up to five occupants, including the driver. It comes with two-way adjustable front sport seats, which are available with optional leather upholstery to add some luxury to the sports car. The standard audio system includes an AM/FM/Cassette audio player with six speakers and radio theft deterrent. A CD player and CD changer are available options. The Cabrio has a nice audio system for a car of its model year.

Storage features include a center console, a lighted glove box, and dual door bins. Other standard interior features include dual-illuminated visor vanity mirrors, a systems monitor, a dome light, and a cargo light. Driver and passenger windows are one-touch down for added convenience. Unfortunately, air conditioning does not come standard for this convertible, but can be included as an optional add-on.

Performance & Handling

The Cabrio is a front-wheel-drive vehicle with a front strut suspension, a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine, and a five-speed manual transmission capable of 115 hp and 122 lb-ft of torque. A four-speed automatic transmission is available as an option. Front and rear anti-roll bars are standard to help with stability when cornering and driving on irregular or uneven surfaces. Cruise control also comes standard.


The Cabrio features front disc/rear drum anti-lock brakes. Driver and passenger front airbags also come standard. Variable intermittent front windshield wipers, fixed interval rear windshield wipers, and a rear defroster all help keep the windows clear during bad weather.

To add to the long list of safety features of the Cabrio, a security system, power door locks, a power trunk/hatch release, a power remote fuel flap release, and fog lights all come standard. The 1995 Volkswagen Cabrio is certainly an above-average car in the safety department.
