What's the used Vauxhall Tigra sports like?

By the time this second, all-new, Tigra arrived in 2004, things had changed. Just being a cute coupe was no longer good enough, so Vauxhall went hi-tech with a folding metal roof to compete with cars like the Peugeot 206 CC, Ford StreetKa and Mini convertible.

And, very good it is, too. The electric roof stows quickly and easily, and boot space is reasonable when it's down. Protection from buffeting is good and, with the roof up, it feels like a genuine coupe.
