We’re not used to seeing the sun. It’s usually masked by a layer of low-flying cloud, so when it’s revealed, we must act fast to enjoy as much of it as we can. That’s what makes a convertible so great because it allows you to bask in the sunshine, even on the way to work. You may have thought that we, as a nation, wouldn’t care much for open-top cars, but, in fact, we buy more than most European countries. This means that there’s a welter of very affordable used examples available.

What’s more, there’s a used convertible to suit everyone – from practical and efficient four-seaters that can easily serve as family cars, to luxurious, elegant grand tourers that are perfect for wafting around, and even small, sporty two-seaters that are perfect for a sunny weekend. So grab a brew and envisage yourself behind the wheel of one of these fabulous cabrios. We’ve done all the hard work for you and put together a list of our favourites – and if you’re tempted, follow the links to our classifieds and go for a test drive in any of the examples in this slideshow.
