Welcome, purveyors of fine Volvo model codes! Are the NK and NC models closely related? What’s the alternative code for the V40 Cross Country? All your questions should be answered by the handy table listed below:
Yoh, that’s pretty. How much does it cost?
You need to know: Three times. That’s how often I got asked about this car’s price in less than 12 hours. A lot of that may be down to this press unit’s striking combination of black metallic paint, sleek light clusters on every corner, pincushion Mercedes radiator grill, pale beige interior and AMG Line goodies.
The superficial attributes
Good news. People are actually reading my reviews and, more importantly, some of these people appear to be listening to my suggestions. When I dismissed some sporty BMW convertible a few weeks ago and stated that I’d rather drive a weaker version, I honestly didn’t expect it to pitch up so quickly.
The ruinous mother
Five days. That’s how long it took me to finally get used to my latest test car or rather, to actually appreciate what its maker had in mind. Forgive my initial resistance to its charms, but the BMW M240i Convertible annoyed me for 120 hours straight with its many, many flaws during my regular commutes.
Like last year, we asked you to vote for your favourites through our new website and social media pages but, unlike last year, y’all must’ve been so drunk that you couldn’t be bothered.
The polite softness
I hate pointless things. Nay, I detest anything that misses its point or purpose. Like a screwdriver being used as a chisel, creative minds studying tax law or that gigantic 4×4 on the school run. My latest test car, this pearly white convertible Mercedes S-Class, had me wondering at first – what the hell is the point of it?
A friend for four seasons
You might agree that our changing weather isn’t the ideal time to launch a new soft-top convertible, but this only boosted the confidence of Mercedes-Benz representatives at the recent launch of the new E-Class Cabrio. Backed by a joyful marketing campaign that denotes the newcomer as one cabrio for four seasons, the topless executive German completes the E-Class line-up of sedan, estate, coupé and convertible. It’s based on the 2-door coupé version of the E and is only available with a soft top.
