If you love the idea of the open air blowing through your hair and the freedom that communicates, then the cabrio smart car model is perfect for you.

It's basically the same as the smart passion coupe, except for the soft top and an upgraded stereo system. That soft top is fully automatic and also includes a heated rear window that can be adjusted while driving. Pretty cool, huh?

We might have opted for this model if it hadn't been for the recession. As it was, we couldn't really justify it. Another smart owner we met here in Boise, though, has the smart car convertible and loves it!

But to get more specific about the smart cabriolet, let's look closer...
