Parkers overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 4.5

The coupe model achieves a four-star Euro NCAP rating which the cabriolet should match and it features six airbags as standard and a full compliment of electronic safety measures. Extra roll-over protection triggers behind the rear seats in the event of a roll. Puts up a very good fight in the face of thieves who might otherwise find it a very tempting target.

The boot features a collapsible wall so that when the hood is not in use, more boot space is freed up. Additionally the entire roof mechanism can be removed as a cartridge when using the optional hard top giving maximum boot capacity.
