The stylish Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet has been put through its paces, and yet emerged with flying colours.
After getting behind the wheel of a variety of the Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet 2.0 TDI Sport, the Daily Telegraph's motoring expert Andrew English deemed the car to be "a huge improvement on the previous version, and a fun way of getting the wind in your hair".
The vehicle in question, which the publication awarded with a rating of four out of five stars, came packed with a 1,968cc, four-cylinder turbodiesel engine under its bonnet.
With this motor in place, drivers can achieve up to 138bhp and a maximum torque of 4,200rpm/236lb ft at 1,750rpm.
From a driving perspective, the engine is capable of reaching 62mph from a standstill in just 9.9 seconds and then go on to hit a top speed of 122mph.
Of course, this being a cabriolet version of the well-loved Volkswagen Beetle, one main question being pondered by motorists is how effective the car's roof is when put in action.
Mr English has looked to answer this query by stating that the all-new automatic hood mechanism moves at up to 31mph – translating to nine seconds to totally go down and only another 11.5 seconds to go back up and latch into place.
