The Best Consumer Convertibles

Chevrolet Camaro

Chevrolet CamaroThe market is packed with convertibles, but lots of them are expensive and out of the reach of ordinary drivers like you and me. Here are the best affordable convertibles available at the moment.


Mini Cooper Convertible

The only thing more fun than a Mini Cooper is a Mini Cooper convertible. With its stylish design and playful handling, the car is great for anyone looking for a great drive. Sure, it’s not the most practical or even the most reliable car on the road. But it is pretty cheap and a lot of fun to drive. The convertible simply adds to the fun. They’ve sold very well to young people, and it’s not hard to see why. It has smooth handling, and it can move pretty quickly too.

Mercedes SLK

The way that used Mercedes SLKs have fallen in price makes them a great prospect for people looking for a quality convertible on a budget. You can find great bargains at a Used Car Supermarket so take a look. You won’t be disappointed with the car you end up with either. The SLK is incredibly stylish, and the interiors are refined to a very high standard. It’s also incredibly reliable, which is something that not all convertible sports cars are.

Chevrolet Camaro

The Chevrolet Camaro is a muscle car with a truly striking style. It’s all hard edges and sharp angles. This is a design that some people find ugly, but other love it. It’s the kind of design that split opinion dramatically. But the power of the car makes up for any misgivings you may have about the design of the body. It has a raw power that is much greater than any of the other convertibles on this list, or any other convertibles you’ll find anywhere for that matter.

Mazda MX-5 Miata

If you want something a bit more smooth and elegant, the Mazda MX-5 Miata is definitely the car for you. It’s affordable in a way that many sporty convertibles aren’t. But that doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice anything. This is honestly one of the all-time great roadsters. There are lots of cars that cost twice as much as the MX-5 Miata that aren’t even half as good as it. That’s not an exaggeration either, its build quality and refinement make it one of the best cars of our time.

Ford Mustang

The great thing about the Mustang is the way that it is continued to improve for more than four decades yet sticks to its original principles. The modern Mustang is pretty much the same as it always has been, but at the same time it’s totally different. It’s all about Ford’s focus on incremental advancements. It’s evolution rather than revolution, and it’s what makes the Mustang one of the best cars around, even after all this time. The convertible option only adds to its elegance and style.

Convertibles don’t have to be just for the rich. You can easily afford one if you go for one of the options above.
