Parkers overall rating: 5 out of 5 5.0

In the event of an accident, occupants are protected by six airbags including head airbags in the window sill - a world first for a convertible. If an incident is bad enough for the vehicle to start to roll, twin roll-over hoops behind the rear seats are triggered, springing into place to augment the reinforced windscreen pillars. Electronic stability control is standard and can help correct the car's line during a skid by braking one or more wheels individually and cutting power if necessary.

Carrera and Carrera S versions of the Cabriolet have 135 litres of luggage room in the front. The space isn't massive but is usefully deep and can deal with a decent-sized overnight bag. Carrera 4 models and the Turbo have 105 litres - about the same as an Audi R8. However the rear seats can be used for carrying space (which most people do) and they also fold flat to form a useful luggage shelf.

The roof can be opened or closed on the move at speeds of up to 31mph and takes around 20 seconds to complete its operation. When open, it sits flush enough not to cause any rear visibility problems. A hard-top can be fitted should you require additional security or high-speed refinement.
