Best Convertible Cars for 2016Back

The sun has finally come out, and this Easter many motorists may start to think about purchasing a convertible car to make the most of the summer months.

If you’re considering buying a soft-top, now is a great time. The new 16 plate is out, so you’ll find some excellent deals on used and nearly-new convertibles as dealers work hard to shift older stock. Furthermore, whilst it’s still fairly cold, why not cash in on a convertible car now before the summer rush?

Below, Trusted Dealers has picked some of our favourite convertible cars on UK roads available to purchase now. Take a look to find your perfect summer soft-top!

MazdaMX5Mazda MX-5 

If you’re looking for a sporty convertible, without the price tag of a luxury one, the Mazda MX-5 is the perfect choice. Mazda has re-designed the MX-5 to be even smaller and lighter than before and it’s a sharp driving machine too. Behind the wheel it handles superbly well, zipping around corners with enthusiasm, whilst its efficient four-cylinder engine is perky enough to make it really fun to drive. Add to the mix plenty of creature comforts and infotainment features and it’s hard to find anything we like better.

Fiat 500C (2009-16)

The Fiat 500C is modelled on the original Fiat 500 – it’s cute and quirky with great driveability and low running costs. It will cost you a lot less to buy than its rival, the Mini Convertible, although you might not cash in as well at resale. Like the 1950s original. the Fiat 500C is no conventional convertible, moreover a full length canvas sunroof is stretched across the top of the windscreen to the tailgate. We’d recommend the 500C 875cc TwinAir Lounge for the best mix of performance and equipment.

BMW4SeriesConvertibleBMW 4 Series Convertible

The BMW 4 Series Convertible is one of the most attractive entry-level luxury sports cars on the market. It carries all the traits we know and love about BMWs such as excellent performance and handling, impressive fuel economy and great re-sale values, not to mention offering a host of luxury equipment and plenty of interior comfort. The 4-Series convertible is an excellent daily driver but as comfortable on longer road trips, whilst the retractable steel hardtop provides added peace of mind to owners.

Citroen C1 Airscape

The Citroen C1 is an attractive city car in its own right, but with the addition of the fabric folding roof, the car takes on a whole new dimension. Few city cars come with a convertible model that’s affordable, but the C1 is certainly one of them. Furthermore, it looks great, is cheap to buy and run, and it can just about squeeze four adults in at a push. It’s not a luxurious car, but if you’re looking for an affordable, no frills convertible, it’s a great option. We’d recommend the 81bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine to gain a good balance between performance and fuel economy.

MiniCooperConvertibleMini Cooper Convertible

The Mini Cooper Convertible provides all of the driving thrills we’ve come to expect from the Mini brand, and it’s a soft top too. If you’re looking for one of the UK’s best-loved superminis, the Mini Cooper ticks all the right boxes and residual values on used models remain strong. Climb aboard for heightened fun and entertainment whilst you can enjoy open-top driving too. Fuel economy is excellent and there’s plenty of neat gadgets in the cabin to keep your occupants fully entertained even with the roof down.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet delivers the height of luxury to its owners and its all about opulence and serenity. Passengers can drive with the top down and not get too windswept thanks to high side windows, a rear wind defector and a unique AirCap deflector. The E-Class Cabriolet comes with all the luxury equipment you’d expect from the premium badge such as heated front seats and an AirScarf system that blows warm air on your neck on cooler nights. For a high level of comfort. safety, style and performance, this soft-top car is a great choice.

PorscheBoxsterPorsche Boxster

The Porsche Boxster is a superb car, whether in convertible mode or not. It’s beautiful to look at, the interior build is impeccable and its an epic drive. You’ll pay a higher price to own one, but we think it’s worth the extra cash to benefit from its superb performance. Climb aboard the driving seat and you’ll be blown away – pardon the pun – by  this utterly sensational, highly powerful sports car. Furthermore, there’s not one, but two trunks available to carry your luggage.
