Driving doesn’t have to be just about getting from A to B. There is plenty of fun to be had when you get behind the wheel. However, your choice of car plays a huge role in making the most of that experience. When the sun does come out in the UK, it makes us appreciate it all the more. On those occasions, why not take to the road in a convertible and make the most of it . Life is for living, so here are some of the best convertibles to help you make the most of it. 

We can't think of a better feeling than driving along an open country road with the roof down and the sun on your face. Which is why we’ve put together this list of the best convertible cars for the summer ahead.

Mini Cooper

Where else to start then with the iconic convertible? The Mini Cooper is an institution of the British automotive industry, one which has even become embedded within popular culture. In the newer models, it’s retained its distinctive looks. While new-age technology, design and safety features mean it’s still an absolute joy to drive. The reasonable price makes it one of the best and most affordable convertible cars. A timeless British masterpiece with a top speed of 150 mph.

Mercedes C-Class

The stylish Mercedes is a classic on the UK roads. With great handling and a top speed of 145 mph, why wouldn't you want this car? Additional perks include that you can operate the roof of the Mecedes C-Class even at 31mph. This is thanks to a simple switch in the centre console. Perfect for a quick change if the weather suddenly turns on you. Additionally, the revolutionary roll-over protection system means you and your passengers can feel safe at all times. With the roof down, a second screen behind the rear seats keeps you and your passengers from getting too windswept. 

BMW 2 Series

The BMW 2 Series convertible certainly does not disappoint. With a distinctive muscular appearance, it looks as though it’s built for power and performance. However, there is plenty of subtlety to match the style. With a top speed of 129 mph and excellent agility and superb fuel efficiency, the 2 Series is one of the best convertible cars if you’re looking for an all-rounder city and country car. 

Audi TT

Quite simply, the TT is one of the best looking convertible cars on the market. The Audi TT has been a staple feature of the brand’s offering for years now, and with a roof that’s retractable in just 10 seconds you can switch from shade to sunshine with minimal effort. If the wind does leave you with a bit of a chill while you are winding round country roads, the heated seats make sure you’ll remain comfortable at all times. With a top sped of 155mph and reliable handling and traction, the Audi TT is a great all rounder for your summer drives.

Jaguar F-Type

Another absolute classic of British automotive engineering, the jaguar F-Type continues to deliver its renowned style and sophistication. The convertible version is certainly no different, with a roof that can drop down in a little over 10 seconds, even while on the move. Along with a top speed of 186 mph, this car really stands out from the crowd. When you factor in its usual supreme handling, smooth ride and rapid straight line speed, it’s easy to see why the F-Type is considered among the very best convertible cars.
