Pity they say it will improve boot space that the previous model intruded upon. It doesn't . The only things that we lost were the two cubby holes behind the two seats. No real loss IMHO. As for calling it a metal hard top. Get a grip, it's resin.

Yes Autocar only missed out on the other long term press error and say the body is Galvenised.

Similar to a financial journalist last week that said the new state pension will not be flat rate for half the people receiveing it who retire from April.

In the next sentence they said the new state pension is flat rate from April!

I rather like that, although it's pretty obviously a photoshop effort. I'd doubt if that roof line would fold.

Would love to see an actual coupe version with a pano sunroof, rather than the full folding job.

So still a problem to get in and out in a tight car park and you cannot out the hood down on a coupe.

Can't see a reason to have a cramped car and not get the hood down!
