What are the best soft tops of 2017?
With summer on its way, and a new batch of cars fresh off the production line, many of us might just be thinking about an upgrade, perhaps even go topless. Despite the changeable and often wet weather we get in the UK, we actually buy more convertibles than any other country in Europe. In fact, our mild summers provide the perfect conditions for driving with the roof down. You still get the fresh air and the sunshine, but don’t have to worry so much about heat stroke or sunburn.
Fortunately, driving a convertible no longer means droughts, leaks and a flapping canvas. Today’s convertibles offer drivers comfort and refinement that you would expect with any solid-roofed vehicle.
This year brings with it an array of great convertibles to tempt you.
A little bigger than previous models, the MINI convertible offers excellent handling and a superb finish that will look stylish no matter where you choose to drive. Four-door convertibles aren’t always that easy to find, so if you’re looking for a family car with a bit of an edge, this could well be the ideal option for you. The roof is quick to fold back, meaning that you’re always ready for whenever the sun shines.
