These days there are so many cars to choose from that selecting a new ride can be a pretty daunting task. And because they can cost more than your current savings, you don’t want to rush into making a decision and end up with a dreaded lemon. To make your life easier, we’ve lined up the best options to meet your needs.
Roof, Optional: Mini Convertible
Who’s it for? Anyone looking to turn heads as they drive along the coast with the wind in their hair.
What makes it great? It might not be the most practical buy, but what cabriolet is? And to be honest, it’s all about buying with your heart and not your head when it comes to a boulevard cruiser. This charming and characterful convertible has just undergone a facelift so it looks fresher than ever. And if you’re cruising along the coast, you really don’t want to have to worry about shifting gears, so opt for the automatic derivative.
It’s fun, it’s nippy, it’s entertaining and now, thanks to the MINI Yours Customised programme, you can add retrofit products that you create yourself. The range includes side scuttles, decorative strip LED door-sill finishers and a LED door projector. From R423 200
Also Consider: Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet
This has to be one of the most stylish convertibles on the road and has a roof that can open or close in just under 20 seconds at speeds of up to 50km/h. It has a host of engines to choose from, including the powerful AMG range, but then you’re getting into the millions, so maybe opt for the C200 or C200d to save some money but still be satisfied.
