Much as we love the Golf GTI, some of the character of the original hatchback was lost once the roof was chopped off. Mostly due to the 200 kilo weight penalty of the additional bracing needed. But the same peppy GTI handling was still present.
However, none fits the description of a cabriolet more than a Mercedes-Benz. The E350 snags the win by a mile for its elegance, build quality and regal performance.
