Citroen DS3 Cabriolet
Open-top buyers tend to put style at the top of their shopping list, and the DS3 has that in spades. The DS3 is good to drive, too; its roof pillars remain in place when the roof is folded back, so the DS3 suffers none of the collywobbles that can affect other drop-tops, which helps it feel agile and alert.
You're also kept well protected from buffeting and the roof can be put back in place at speeds of up to 74mph - handy when combating surprise rain showers.
The 1.6-litre petrol suits the relaxed nature of open-top ownership: it isn't turbocharged, but it still pulls smoothly from low revs.
DStyle trim is well priced and gets a long list of standard kit including central locking, electric windows, air-con, and tinted rear windows. Inside, the DS3 Cabriolet is just as stylish; the dash is constructed from high-quality materials and, unlike many open-tops of this size, you get three seats in the back.
