4. BMW 2 Series Convertible

The BMW 2 Series Convertible looks expensive new next to its immediate rivals, but it is much better value as a used car and it's great fun to drive and comfortable over long distances too. It's a compact convertible with a rather delicious interior and a fine infotainment system. It feels more agile than its larger 4 Series sibling, and it's better value. Our recommended Sport trim gets you sports seats and bespoke alloy wheels – and the 220d engine we recommend is punchy yet reasonably economical.

We found: 2018 BMW 220d Sport, 2200 miles, £24,000

Range Rover Evoque Convertible vs Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet

The Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet is up against some strong competition in this market, particularly from BMW's open-top 2 and 4 Series. The good news is that, while the BMWs may have the edge on handling and driving dynamics, the Mercedes is the more complete package, offering a more refined, economical and comfortable experience. There's also an extensive list of standard equipment, which includes satellite navigation, heated front seats, a self-parking system and LED headlights, and used values are excellent. 

We found: 2018 Mercedes-Benz C220d Cabriolet, 26,000 miles, £23,995

2. Mini Convertible

Mini Convertible Cooper

If you like your convertibles small and cute, look no further than the Mini Convertible. You get the same smart styling and good driving dynamics of the modern Mini hatchback, but there's also an electric folding fabric roof for when the sun is out. There isn't a great deal of space for rear passengers, but it is great fun to drive. Buying used at, say, a year old, will save you a healthy dollop of cash, too, so even more reason to put the cheeky convertible on your drive. 

We found: 2018 Mini 1.5 Convertible, 2000 miles, £22,995
