C - Cabriolet/convertible

05 June 2006

Cabriolet/convertible - Cabriolets and convertibles are different names for the same thing: a car with a folding roof, which is based on an existing hard-top model. An example is the VW Beetle Cabriolet, as opposed to a purpose-built roadster, such as the Mazda MX-5. They usually provide four seats and more practicality than a roadster.
