1993 - 2000 (change model)
Practicality rating: 3.5 out of 53.5

No Euro NCAP result, as these tests were not yet being run. Good for its age, almost all models have ABS but earliest cars may have no airbags at all and some were retro-fitted. Passenger airbags generally optional and side bags only optional on the later models. Good immobiliser fitted from 1992 onwards.

The boot is quite a good size for a convertible and copes easily with the week’s shop or a weekend away.
