What we are looking for

  • Carefree motoring with the wind in your hair – that’s the prime motivation for buying a convertible. A good drop-top should make you feel great every minute the roof is down, so noise and wind buffeting should be kept to a minimum.
  • But, of course, such a car shouldn’t just be a fair-weather friend; its roof should be quick and easy to raise and lower while keeping you warm and dry through the worst of the British winter.
  • Comfort is just as important, given that these cars will often be used daily, and while you’ll never buy a convertible purely for its practicality, neither should you have to compromise too much on space for your passengers and luggage.
