Parkers overall rating: 2 out of 5 2.0

The driving position is high, but not at all comfortable. The seats don't give enough back support and the steering wheel adjusts for height only so finding a position is tricky. Visibility is poor all-round: chunky windscreen pillars restrict the front view, the thick rollover hoop creates a large blindspot down the side of the car and a small rear screen means it's a pain to see out of the back with the roof up - and even more difficult to park.

Visibility is slightly better with the roof down, as you'd expect, but still far from ideal. The dials in front of the driver are large and clear, but the dash is button heavy and confusing - the central locking button is where you'd expect the electric window switch for example.

All models come with full leather upholstery as standard and there's plenty of legroom for the two in the back (it's a four seater, rather than a five) compared to other cabrios, although headroom is quite tight. Despite the low roofline, the front passenger has decent headroom, but there is considerable wind and road noise at speed and it isn't a very relaxing long distance car.

With the roof down, noise is kept quite low and it's surprisingly refined.
