The best convertible cars in the world

What are the advantages of cabriolets?

Rolling in a convertible gives another dimension to your travels. On country roads, all your senses will be awakened. You'll hear the sound of the wind, the birds singing... and everything will become magical. However, the 2021 convertible can also turn into a coupe in just a few seconds thanks to condoms that are, most of the time, entirely electric.

Also, the convertible has a certain aesthetic side since the line is generally very pure, especially when the roof is removed. It allows a clear view of the interior and gives an even more tasteful side to your car. In 2021, the choice is quite limited, but it has the advantage of being open since, alongside the traditional coupe and urban discoveries, there is a convertible SUV and roadsters.

Porsche 718 Boxster

Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder Always in the spirit of pleasure car, the Porsche 718 Boxster is among the references. 13 feet long, it has an unusual feature: two safes. The front one has a capacity of 150 liters and the rear one has a capacity of 125 liters. This is explained by an interesting architecture: the engine is in the rear center position.

A perfect combination of sportiness and comfort. The canvas top unfolds in just 20 seconds and does not spoil this beautiful line. Despite being a rather heavyweight, the performances are very honorable, but this time you will have to deal with a small 140 liter safe... Sufficient to afford an afternoon of golf, but certainly not enough for a week's holiday! Allow around 34,000 euros.

Mazda MX-5 ST/RF

Roadster Mazda MX-5A roadster propulsion barely a ton, with a manual gearbox and a canvas top... A simple recipe that makes you dream and is always as effective. The 3.91-meter-long Mazda MX-5 (ND) is suitable for two people only. Despite its small 130-liter trunk and little storage in the cabin, it is a smiling factory.
