Unlike a lot of its contemporaries, the A3 Cabriolet has a fabric roof that folds up in less space than its folding metal hard top contemporaries and allows it to remain a four seater with a decent boot. And best of all, the A3 Cab doesn't loose its composure when the roof is removed because it still handles sweetly.

Used BMW 2 Series Convertible 14-present

The BMW 2 Series is great to drive thanks to a great range of engines from punchy petrol to quiet and efficient diesels. We were also able to find examples of the BMW 2 Series that were a year younger than a similarly priced A3.

Mini Convertible front three quarters

Mix all the flair of the Mini with a soft-top for summertime fun and you've got a great used car. It's not as practical as some of its rivals but it's guaranteed to put more of a smile on your face. 

BMW 4 Series Convertible

The 4 Series is the only convertible in this price point with a folding metal hard top that will make it more refined with the top up at speed. It also feels decently agile going down a country road, and is comfortable to ride in.

Range Rover Evoque Convertible vs Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet

Most of the three-year-old C-Class examples we found came with an economical diesel engine, so despite it looking like a costly convertible, you shouldn't have to fork out much to run it. Find one with the optional vents in the front seat headrests, and you will be able to keep warm even in the depths of winter.

Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet

BMW 4 Series Convertible vs Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet

It may be the other shape E-Class, but it is still a classy cabriolet with a decent amount of practicality for four people. There are some petrol engines available, but the vast majority available for sale will be an economical diesel.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet

No matter whether you have the roof up or down, the E-Class Cabriolet is quiet and the standard wind deflector does a good job of keeping the wind from messing up your hair. It should be reasonable to run, too, since most examples have a fuel-sipping 2.0-litre diesel.

BMW 6 Series Convertible 11-18

While you may have to settle for a slightly older BMW 6 Series convertible, you are getting a lot of car for the money. A lot were bought new with a stonking 3.0-litre diesel that is quiet when cruising and gives it an impeccably long range - perfect for jaunts to the coast.

Audi A5 Cabriolet

Of the three cars in this price point, you're more likely to find an A5 Cabriolet that's less than a year old, and with most starting above £40,000 when new, that's an impressive saving. It's smooth and refined and shouldn't cost a fortune to run, either.
