    My daughter has a Pop Cabrio and I think it's pretty quiet.

    Then again, I own an Abarth.

    Seriously, the top is VERY well made for this price point, with plenty of layering. Highway driving is not loud or bothersome at all. I was always sorry Fiat never "sold" how good the design was. No cowl shake, nice and solid, and unlike the Mini you still still see out the back with a three quarter view.

    I've owned both. Had a 2012 Pop Cabrio and currently have a 13 Turbo with sunroof. Loved the Cabrio. The Cabrio isn't louder on the highway with the top closed, unless it's raining hard, then it's noisier. There is no air whistling noises or anything like that. In all honesty, the Cabrio was overall quieter but that's because my turbo has a muffler delete and back seat delete so the engine drone is loud. I traded for two reasons: I wanted the turbo and it was not available as a Cabrio at the time and I needed a hatch for better access to my food bags in my delivery service. Now that I rarely use the car for delivery, I greatly miss the soft top. It gives a more open feeling then the sunroof but when fully down, rear view visibility is awful, but that's been rectified by the now standard rear view cam on 18 models.

    Do you think its easy to break into, or is it thicker and more difficult to cut into than similar soft-tops?

    Softtop will always be easier to vandalize. That's being said, if a crook wants your car, he's going to take it no matter what the roof is made of. However, Fiats are LOW on the interest list for thieves so this wouldnt really be a concern of mine. Also, cutting a Cabrio's top wouldn't facilitate entry much since it still has steel side panels in the way. Be a helluva lot easier to just break the window.

    Took a Cabrio Abarth out for a test today. Quieter than I thought it would be, but as this was a 2017 with 16k on it, I noticed the wear from sunlight I guess on the cloth. Since mine would be garaged, hopefully it wouldn’t be as evident, as it made the car look older than it was...nice mechanism though for sure.
