Summer is here and that means two things. The AC will be on most of the time and you will start regretting that you didn’t buy a convertible. And that is why we are here to bring you the list of 20 best convertibles for cruising this summer and help you decide while you still have the time. The convertibles, in general, are the one class that endured everything and still stayed relevant in the 21st century. Over the years convertibles were even banned due to tightening safety standards and almost extinct at one point. But love for open air driving and enjoyment that only open top cars can deliver won and today we have many interesting cars on the market. The biggest revolution in this segment came when folding hard tops were introduced in the early 2000s. The advantages were numerous and convertibles were no longer uncomfortable, poorly isolated, noisy and easy to break into. In fact, they were as safe and comfortable as regular coupes. For a moment, it looked like all models will feature futuristic, metal hard tops that will go down in a matter of seconds. Interestingly, that didn’t happen and soft tops still remained a popular choice among convertible buyers simply because they look cool, have a vintage feel and with the advances in modern technology, offer acceptable levels of comfort and isolation. Today, we are going to present you 20 of the best and most interesting convertibles on the market. The list consists of cars that are very different from each other in terms of power, speed, and price. But they have one important thing in common and that is that all those cars provide blue skies above the driver’s head, perfectly capturing the essence of open top driving. So, let’s go.
