Best convertibles for winterBack

You might not automatically think of buying a convertible at this time of year, but you could actually save a lot of cash if you did.

With dealers across the country keen to free up space on the forecourt for SUVs and 4x4s that offer more seasonal appeal, you have a much better chance of grabbing yourself a soft-top bargain.

And it’s not just us that thinks so, industry data from used car valuations body CAP has revealed that the average advertised price for a pre-owned convertible in May this year was £17,286, whilst in August this dropped to £15,944 and by September prices had dropped even further.

So, if you’re thinking about buying a used convertible car, now is a great time. But be warned, the best deals are to be had before Christmas as prices will start to rise in the New Year as retailers start to think about summer’s customers.

Take a look below at our top five best convertible cars to buy this winter:
