The C70 Coupé is now dead, but the Convertible version lives on. It makes a welcome alternative to the executive convertible sector competing with Saab, BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz.

3 out of 5

The C70 Coupé is now dead, but the Convertible version lives on. It makes a welcome alternative to the executive convertible sector competing with Saab, BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz. It's getting on a bit but still makes a great place to be for four people on a sunny day and is practical enough for year round usage.

What owners say...

 The C70 is the perfect two-seater cruiser but accommodates 4 comfortably. Boot space is compromised by the roof storage but still allows fair holiday luggage.

 Luxury 4 seater convertible at a good height from the ground, don't have to scrape my backside on the floor to get in or out.
