The amount of cowl shake really depends on the car itself and the way the manufacturer goes about engineering it as a drop-top (obvious). What I mean is that many convertibles which have pronounced cowl shake were retro-purposed from hardtops and to save cost the manufacturer may not have beefed up the structure as required for a topless car. Generally, cars which are designed to be convertibles from the start are engineered to be as rigid as they need to be.

Well built? Seems so. The ugliest SUV lineup around? By far. The Cube is the best looking here!

I am trying to figure out who the hell will use this. I have a feeling some celebs or wealthy parents will buy this for their daughters in California or Florida.

That ragtop is hideous!

They should just make black canvas as the standard top color...

This is one of those vehicles in a few years we'll all be saying, "remember that convertible CUV thing Nissan had a couple of years ago, what was it called?".
