Model: Cabriolet Boutique

1988-1992

Model Information

The Cabriolet Boutique was the top trim level for the 1988-1990 model years in the USA, and up through 1992 in

Canada.


Canada: The 1991-1992 Boutique is the basic equivalent of the Carat in the USA; car is called a Golf Cabriolet.


Reportedly, only 5 Guinea Blue models were produced for the USA.  This has yet to be proven, but this one-year-only

color is definitely a rare one.
