Now is the perfect time to buy a convertible car - sales are slowest when the weather is at its worst, so you should be able to snap up a bargain.

Convertibles and cabriolets still have to offer more than just good looks - they need to be refined, comfortable and economical enough to drive every day, whatever the weather.

Of course, all this is pointless if the car isn't any fun to drive, so the best open-tops out there need to strike a good balance between performance and practicality.

Here are our favourite convertibles and the ones we think you should avoid. And, remember, before you start shopping for your new car, take a look at our new car buyer marketplace to see how much we could save you on your next car.
