Convertibles. Despite our notorious climate, we Brits ironically buy more convertibles than most other European countries. And with the scorcher of last weekend’s bank holiday weather getting us into gear for the summer, we thought we’d take a look at the five best convertibles on the market for summer 2018.

Top 5 Best Convertibles for Summer 2018

So whether you’re looking to cruise down the Norfolk coast or explore the Yorkshire Dales, here are our top convertible picks for Joes:

Porsche 718 Boxster

If you’re looking for a new convertible this summer, look no further than the Porsche 718 Boxster. The Boxster boasts speeds of 0-60 in just over 5 seconds and has relatively reasonable running costs for a luxury sports car. What’s more you’ll find ample cabin and boot space – much better than similar sports cars in the same price bracket.

Prices starting from £44,758


Mini Cooper Convertible

Oh we do love a Mini – and taking off the roof hasn’t dimmed the Mini’s charm. It’s agile on the road, efficient in running and will always look great with a pair of shades. There’s a vast range of personalisation if you’re looking to tweak your Mini, and for more power you can always bump up to the Cooper S.

Prices starting from £20,450



It may not be in production any more, but we think one of the best looking convertibles in recent years is the BMW Z4. If you can get hold of one, make sure you go for one of M Sport models so you’ll be comfortable enough to make those long top down trips enjoyable.

Prices starting from £28,880


Mazda MX-5 Miata

Of course, no list would be complete without mentioning the iconic Mazda MX-5. This time we turn our attentions to the Miata. This two-seater roadster has been winning over drivers for the best part of 25 years for its pure driving experience, gorgeous exterior and all round good value. Now in its fourth generation, it’s no wonder when asked by Jeremy Clarkson to rate the MX-5 he said, “the only reason I’m giving it 5 stars is because I can’t give it 14.”

Prices starting from £22,235


Jaguar F-Type Convertible

The F-Type is a convertible with personality and a road presence like no other. This Jag provides an unrivalled driving experience and is universally acclaimed as one of the best looking open-top sports cars available. Now you can really make the most of summer!

Prices starting from £56,695


There we have it – five of the best convertibles to help you make the most of the summer months. And if you need a place to take your brand new drop-top, here some of the world’s most scenic coastal drives!
