There's no shortage of small convertibles on the market, but while the Micra C+C may not be the sportiest choice, it still has a lot going for it. Well built, comfortable and affordable to run, it's a drop top that appeals to the head as well as the heart.

There's no shortage of small convertibles on the market, but while the Micra C+C may not be the sportiest choice, it still has a lot going for it. Well built, comfortable and affordable to run, it's a drop top that appeals to the head as well as the heart. It does lose some of the cuteness of the standard Micra hatchback, but it's as easy to drive and features the same neatly laid out interior.

Although it has four-seats, the rear two are only useful as extra luggage space, but the boot is surprisingly large. The electrically-folding roof is all glass - giving the interior an airy feel - and takes around 20 seconds to retract. There are just two engine choices though and no diesel is available.

What owners say...

 Large boot for the type of car - practical when the roof is up.

 Metal and glass folding roof rather than Cloth. Massive boot when roof up - and I mean massive - as big as a Mondeos. Its got a 6 stack CD player and my wife loves music when she drives. Its the 1600...

 It's not really a very practical car but the storage was average. surprisingly nippy, very useful 'overdrive' button on the gear selector.
