Parkers overall rating: 2 out of 5 2.0

The hard-top PT Cruiser earned a mediocre three-star Euro NCAP rating when it was tested in 2002 and we'd expect the cabrio to perform similarly. ABS and traction control are standard and security is taken care of with an alarm/immobiliser and remote central locking.

The boot is incredibly difficult to access - it's low to the ground and shallow, which means you need to bend down a lot to get items in and out. The way the boot lid opens (outwards then upwards) can be a problem in confined spaces too, such as supermarket car parks or tight against a wall. Getting into the back seats is tricky too due to the low roof, high door sills and rollover protection bar while up front (with the roof up) it feels claustrophobic.

The roof is easy to operate though - just twist a lever to release it and it electrically folds down at the flick of a switch in 20 seconds.
