They are the same color. The name was changed for the American market to "hello yellow."

Because it's not for sale yet, we were not provided with a monroney sticker.

I guess it's a good idea to put up some information about this cabriolet.

Release date: Fall 2016. Likely late September-early October.

Because the roof rails are removable, the only way for airbags to be mounted is the side of the seats as well as the door. So now there are a total of 8 airbags.

Also new to the 2017 model is the "Jupiter Red" tridion safety cell. This particular smart cabriolet is a Passion, as evidenced by the black fabric seats.

All US-market 453s have had eight airbags as standard. Am I missing your meaning?

Because of the removable rails, the 451 cabrio was 2 airbags short of the coupe.

This was addressed with the introduction of the ALL NEW 453.

I was just over to check out the 453 Cabriolet at Penske-smart, West Covina. There are now air bags in the upper rear portion of the door panels as well as in the seatbacks.

More pictures, this time with the roof rails on, one of the cabriolet top, and a few with the roof rails in the tailgate.

Can you possibly confirm that the roof rails in the tailgate will not interfere with the JBL speaker system?
