Volkswagen decided to shorten the Cabriolet name to just Cabrio. It was launched with the third generation Golf in the US. Oddly, when the fourth generation of the Golf was released, the Cabrio stayed on the old Gen 3 architecture but the styling was updated to look more like the Gen 4. Many of the Volkswagen Cabrio parts are shared with the Gen 3 model. Towards the end of production, a TV ad featuring four young adults driving around in the car on a moon and star filled night became very popular. The ad was entitled "Milky Way" ran for a few years and boosted the record sales of Nick Drake, whose song "Pink Moon" was featured in place of any dialog.
