“Our engineers wanted to make the PT Cruiser Convertible a convertible that you can actually do things with," said Larry Lyons, Vice President-Small Vehicle Product Team Engineering.* "Nine different seat configurations and a pass-through trunk opening with enough room to store two golf bags make the car more versatile than its competitors."





Added to that is a new level of comfort for convertible passengers.* At more than 40 cubic inches, the Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible features almost 10 inches more rear leg room than other competitors in its class.* The PT Cruiser Convertible also has the same rear seat height as the sedan, for*"open air" rear theater seating.

All of the convertibles that I have had were slower in both acceleration and top speed than the equivalent hardtop model. The convertibles are heavier and historically have poorer aerodynamics than the hardtop models.

Yep, that's because they have to make up for the lack of structural integrity (no roof) by adding bracing underneath the car, which is inherently heavy.The limited top speed can be attributed to both extra weight, and in most cases thee days, a reduced Speed Limiter for liability reasons.

Is this PT shorter than a reg PT, or are the doors just longer?

Andy, although I haven't seen the "official" specs, I am reasonably certain that the convertible is the same length as the hardtop. The doors on the convertible are longer than the front doors on the hardtop to allow access to the rear seat.

Hooligan, I know it is hard to believe but I would suspect that the aerodynamics of the PT convertible with the top up would be slightly worse than the regular PT. With the top down it could be significantly worse. I notice that Chrysler claims that the bar formed from the B pillars is tuned to enhance aerodynamics but I would still bet that the top down aerodynamics are nothing to write home about.
