No Convertible these days which just has the roof lopped off would survive the EuroNCAP.
The theory is that the balance should still be 50:50 and the centre of gravity lower in a convertible. Gone are the days of excessive scuttle shake in convertibles :-)
I have driven Sj car, and although i didnt push it round any bends (only in a straightline
) i didnt notice any ill handling, im sure they handle mighty fine but would have to compare coupe vs vert on track. The weight alone is a deficit.
