Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

The switchgear and plastics are all of a high quality, however, the plastics on the dash feel a little hard and look a little on the cheap side. Visibility is very good but when you have the hood in place there are large blind spots at the rear corners. Our advice would be to tick the box for parking sensors making parking especially in town that bit easier.

On the road the VW Beetle Cabriolet comfort levels are acceptable. It’s quite refined - road and engine roar are minimal.

When you have the hood down it is best to pop the foldable wind deflector up. This will protect the driver and front seat passenger from any breeze.

The ride is a little fidgety and is not as composed as the coupe version. Head- and leg-room is good while the seats have a decent amount of bolstering for your back. The side supports are good (especially when seated in the sports seats on the range-topping Sport trim) too and will hold you in place when cornering enthusiastically.
