A convertible car may be a favourite with those who are a little flusher, but that doesn’t mean you can’t work out a way to buy one on a budget if it’s what you truly want.
Cars are generally not an expense that people consider if they are living on a budget. However, cars are a necessity if you live too far for public transport and you commute often. So, why not look into buying your dream car? Sure, it may not be the latest and greatest model, but there are plenty of soft top cars you can buy on a low budget, and will be better for cheap insurance, too. Check out our list of convertibles that you will drool over:
In the 1990’s, this Peugeot 306 Cabriolet was designed and it still looks pretty stylish today (we reckon!). This can be found for under £1,000 and it’s really going to depend on your budget as to whether it’s perfect for what you need. Keep an eye on the interiors, though, as it’s an older model the interiors can be shabby.
You may be really into the older look with your cars, and that’s absolutely fine. There’s a reason vintage is so in! Add a decade on and the Peugeot 206 Cabriolet can give you that vintage look and even better, it’s on the market for lower than you could expect. Giving you that convertible you long for on the budget you have.
Do you remember the Audi Cabriolet that Princess Diana used to cruise around in during the early 1990’s? Well, check this link out for a budget Audi that is perfect for driving. The handling isn’t as great as it could be, but there’s only so much that can be expected for a car over twenty years old!
If you love a retro look, then you’ll love the way the MK3 Ford Escort Cabriolet looks. Trying to find one that is in great condition may take some searching, but you can get it under budget and a good upholsterer could do wonders on the interiors for you.
Lastly, the Alfa Romeo Spider is a stunning option for those wanting a vintage look from an Italian design. Timeless, this car suits any time and any place, with a little sprucing up of course. It handles far better than the Audi Cabriolet, too, which means you will be spending less on doing it up on the inside.
Overall, finding a convertible within your budget is absolutely doable. Shop around at different times of the year to get an idea of the best price for the model that you want, and you will be able to pick up a car as the showrooms run their sales. Stick to budget without losing out on your dreams!
