    Geneva Preview: Tigra Twintop 'Illusion' soft Top !




    For some weird reason Opel believes that a number of buyers would like a hard-top convertible with the soft-top look of a classic fabric-roofed cabrio.
    While the new Tigra Illusion retains the the electro-hydraulic retractable steel roof, it is covered in a Bordeaux red canvas.
    Customers can choose between a 1.4 (66 kW/90 hp) or 1.8-liter (92 kW/125 hp) gasoline engine. Both come with a five-speed manual transmission,
    while the 1.4 TWINPORT can also be ordered with an automated Easytronic five-speed manual gearbox.
    As with all Tigra TwinTops, the changeover from coupé to cabrio in the "Illusion" takes place at the touch of a button and requires about 18 seconds

    Quite like that, but why no VXR version. They release it on pointless models aka Meriva but not on the Tigra which it would work quite well on IMO

    The Tigra is not a new generation canbus equipped vehicle...

    Thats the only reason I can think of why it wont get the same vxr treatment as the corsa....

    I like that.

    Hate the silver/chrome rear roof section of the current model (It's an option to colourcode it)

    This gives a nice contrast to the body colour.
