What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For Easy to live with; folding hard-top roof; reasonable boot space

Against Only two seats; compromised handling

Verdict Compact and attractive roadster, shame it's not so good to drive

Go for… 1.4 Sport

Avoid… 1.8 Exclusiv

Vauxhall Tigra Coupé Cabriolet
  • 1. The entry-level 90bhp 1.4-litre is the best buy, with reasonable insurance and fuel costs
  • 2. Servicing costs are reasonable and similar to those of the Corsa on which it's based. Using an independent garage will also save you money
  • 3. The 1.4-litre averages 46.3mpg and emits 146g/km, with the 1.8-litre at 36.7mpg and CO2 of 185g/km. The diesel does an average of 61.4mpg and emits 124g/km of CO2
  • 4. The door seals can leak, so check the interior and seals for evidence of moisture or water stains. You should also inspect thoroughly and test the complex folding roof
  • 5. Entry-level Tigras come with alloy wheels, front electric windows, remote central locking and a CD player
