Featuring a power-operated soft top with glass rear window, the Z Roadster is designed to transform from top-up to top-down in about 20 seconds.

The Z Roadster's fully automatic soft top features a heated glass rear window, which helps provide clear visibility in adverse weather conditions. And, unlike other convertibles in class, the top stows compactly under a lightweight tonneau cover, completely hiding the top when down. Activating the top is a simple process. Push the brake and hold the button (located to the left of the steering column) and the top opens and closes. The top is released from or secured to the windshield header with a unique three-lock, single latch located directly above the middle windshield area. The three-lock, single latch system was created to give a more secure seal, while also making the closing process easier. The Z Roadster is the only convertible in its class to offer this type of latch system.

During the design phase of the Z Roadster, engineers devoted countless hours conducting wind tunnel tests. These tests allowed the engineers to adjust the Roadster's design to route air flow to minimize interior noise and turbulence while maximizing downforce at highway speeds. A key component to minimizing interior noise is a tempered glass wind deflector located between the seats that directs wind out and over the cabin. Seatbelt fasteners were also added to help keep seatbelts from flapping in the wind. As a result, the Z Roadster is expected to be among the leading competitors for low interior noise with the top down.
