BMW 3-Series details:

When the BMW 3 Series Convertible was represented, the only surprise was that it had a folding hard top. Other than that, its discreet looks were typical of the company. The distinctive kidney grille, tapered bonnet, strong shoulder line and sculpted sides were unmistakably BMW, but it seems that's why the company's buyers like its vehicles so much they're subtle.

Nobody buys a coupe-cabriolet for the practicality it provides in terms of luggage room. That's just as well, because the 3 Series Convertible can accommodate a mere 210 litres with the roof down, and all of 350 litres with it up. Back bench leg space is also compromised, although there's reasonable head space with the roof up. There's space for two only in the rear and they'll be okay as long as they're well under six feet tall. The only other luxury four-seater coupe-cabrio available is the Volvo C70, as all other competitors use a conventional cloth roof. Like the 3 Series, the Volvo seats four only and stows just 200 or 400 litres, depending on whether the roof is up or down.

BMW has never been too no-cost and simple with the traditional equipment on its vehicles. The days of poverty-spec vehicles have gone though, so the 3 Series convertible is reasonably well-equipped. Entry-level (SE) vehicles have 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, daytime running lights, xenon headlamps, back parking sensors, leather trim, electric windows and dual-zone conditioning as traditional. Move up to M Sport trim and you'll get 18-inch alloys, sports suspension, a multi-function helm and sports seatings.
