Normally when you think of summer cars, you think of a sleek convertible. Although they are great for hot weather, the great British summertime does not always offer that. You want comfort, good boot space or enough room for the family.


What could be good for a long weekend may not suffice for a two week break.


Here are some of our recommendations:



The Mazda mx-5 is a great two seater convertible with an impressive nippy 2-litre engine. Great for a weekend getaway. A comfortable, affordable sports car.



Mercedes E class convertible is a more expensive convertible but it has comfort and allows for 4 adults. It can be a great family car for long distance trips.



Mini Cooper is a great convertible for having all the way down or just as a sun roof when the weather isn’t too hot. The car is also offered as a hard top.



The Fiat Abarth is a great summer car as it’s nippy, light handling and quick acting. Whilst it maintains the features of a fiat 500 it’s much quicker in performance.


Range Rover

In comfort mode, the Range Rover Sport is an ideal vehicle for a long road trip. Adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist always make for a better highway-driving experience.
