Prices start from around £26,500 - that's getting on for nearly £4,000 more than an equivalently-specified version of the fixed-top model, so you've really got to want the open-topped vibe here. You have to have entry-level 'Design'-spec if you're to have the base 1.0-litre TSI 115PS petrol engine. Otherwise, it's the 1.5 TSI EVO 150PS petrol powerplant, available in either 'Design' or plusher 'R-Line' levels of trim. With this larger engine, there's the option of a 7-speed DSG auto gearbox for an extra £1,600. Go for that with 'R-Line' trim and you'll need well over £33,000.
Still, there's plenty of kit fitted across the range - in addition of course to the fully powered fabric hood. Even 'Design'-spec gets you 17-inch alloy wheels, Adaptive Cruise Control, ambient lighting, a Driver Profile Selection driving modes system and a Discover Navigation infotainment system with an 8-inch centre-dash screen. The 'R-Line'-spec version adds larger 19-inch wheels, lowered sports suspension, an R-Line styling body kit, LED headlamps, front fog lamps, more responsive 'Progressive steering' and a 10.25-inch 'Active Info Display' digital instrument cluster screen. Safety kit across the range includes autonomous brake ('Front Assist' and 'City Emergency Braking System'), plus lane Assist and a Driver Alert system.
