Don’t fancy topless? Choose panoramicBack

The London 2012 Olympics have put everyone in a great mood this month despite the onslaught of yet more rain! In fact, it’s fair to say that as a nation, we are quite optimistic when it comes to the weather. So much so, is has been noted that we buy more convertible cars than almost anyone else on the continent.

The UK is the second largest European market for convertible cars, beating the French, Italians and even the Spanish when it comes to drop tops. The downside to open top cars is that we become more exposed to the cold weather, the ride is noisier and our possessions can become targets of thieves.

With all this in mind, it’s no wonder that motoring manufacturers put their heads together and invented the panoramic glass roof, which makes for a wonderful compromise! You might not get the wind rushing through your hair but you’ll stay warm, and the panoramic roof will let plenty of light into the car, making it feel more roomy and spacious plus providing your passengers with that highly sought after open-top feel.

If the idea of a panoramic roof appeals to you, then the Trusted Dealers can help. We have explored a handful of vehicles which sport panoramic roofs to suggest some options to suit you and your budget the best.

Hyundai ix20: Prices from £10,991.00

One of the smallest cars to offer a panoramic roof is the popular Hyundai ix20 which comes in the style of a supermini car with plenty of space inside, whilst offering the high level of fuel economy you’d expect from a city car. Choose the range-topping Style specification and you’ll benefit from a chic and sporty compact MPV car which offers a striking panoramic glass sunroof complete with a UV filter, which spans the front and rear seats. The front panel offers a tilt and sliding function to let the fresh air – as well as light – into the cabin. However, if you’ve got small children you may wish to keep the sunlight out made possible by the built in blinds and the rear glass which is super-darkened for extra privacy and protection.

Range Rover Evoque: Prices from £15,995.00

If you’ve got cash to burn then you might be tempted by the extremely popular Range Rover Evoque, Land Rover’s latest premium 4×4 car. Aimed at the executive market, this luxury car offers plenty of style, great performance and competitive fuel economy whilst maintaining Land Rover’s highly regarded all-terrain capability. Choose the full glass fixed panoramic roof as an option and you’ll benefit from a cabin which feels even more roomy and spacious whilst flooding the interior with plenty of natural light.

Peugeot 5008: Prices for Peugeot cars from £1,944.00

As MPVs go, the 5008 is one of the best, voted ‘MPV of the Year’ by numerous motoring publications, and winning against worthy contenders such as the ever-popular Ford S-Max and the Mazda 5 to claim its title. Offering a highly versatile seven-seat capacity, the interior of the Peugeot 5008 is class-leading with a great driving seat position and adjustable middle row seats capable of sliding and reclining when necessary. It also scored the maximum 5 star safety rating from Euro NCAP for occupancy. Choose the top-of-the-range ‘Exclusive’ trim to benefit from an awesome Cielo panoramic glass roof which promises to keep you and your family in high spirits whatever the weather.
