A Fiat 500 with top down.

A cabrio coach or semi-convertible is a type of car that has a retractable textile roof. It is used on several older cars such as the Saab 92, Citroën 2CV, Fiat 500 and the Fuldamobil, but some modern cars also have it for instance Volkswagen Polo, Isuzu Amigo and Suzuki Vitara. It is an inexpensive alternative to a full convertible, especially on cars with unibody designs since little or no redesign of the body is necessary. Nash Rambler was available as a cabrio coach, but they called it "convertible landau" instead.
