INTERIOR

No luxury has been overlooked within this premium passenger compartment. Leather seating is standard and the backseat is certainly more spacious than any other convertible coupe on the market, skewing the curve with its crossover dimensions.

Up front, quilted leather seats were accentuated by wood trim that matches the leather, but getting any other color interior than the standard black will cost an additional $500. Because it's the top trim level, the CrossCabriolet comes with standard heated seats, dual-zone climate control and Bluetooth connectivity.

In the second row, two cupholders are nestled between the seats, creating a buffer zone between my rear passengers. My kids had plenty of legroom and shoulder room in the backseat. Vents provided added heat or cooling as needed to my ever-present peanut gallery.

One thing we all noticed was the significant road noise with the soft-top. My kids even inquired as to whether we had secured the top completely because they heard air rushing around them. Twice I pulled over to make sure the top was completely closed only to discover that it was. The soft-top just doesn't insulate from the sound the way the hardtop would.
