Best and worst convertibles 2021

The best convertibles come with four seats and offer driving fun come rain or shine. We name the ones you should look for and the ones to avoid...

Audi A3 Cabriolet
2016 Rolls-Royce Dawn review

With prices starting at well over £200,000, the Rolls-Royce Dawn is by far the most expensive car on this list, but it's also exceptionally good. We'd expect the Dawn to offer a luxurious interior and an extremely refined driving style – which it does – but what really impresses here is how easy it is to drive.

It's every bit as quiet with the roof up as the Wraith, the model on which it is based, but with the added advantage of being able to drop its top when the sun is shining.

Aston Martin DB11 Volante

Okay, so the DB11 Volante is ultimately less practical than some of the cars on this list but, in terms of outright driving thrills, it walks over almost any other rival. It offers massive performance, a beautifully crafted interior and is comfortable for long road trips, blending comfort with sporty handling.

2. Audi A3 Cabriolet

Audi A3 Cabriolet

The A3 Cabriolet is the smallest convertible model Audi offers, but it's also one of the best around. The electronic roof can be folded away at speeds of up to 31mph and the whole operation takes just 18sec.

The 1.5-litre petrol engine we recommend is economical but sporty and the mid-range Sport trim offers all the goodies you'll want, including dual-zone climate control, sports seats, sat-nav and 17in alloy wheels.
