Is a Convertible right for me?


Convertible season
is in full swing!

When the sun is shining and temperatures soar, the last thing you want to do is get into a hot car. Instead, you may want to feel the wind through your hair and freedom at your fingertips in a convertible.

But you may be asking yourself:

  • Does a convertible match my lifestyle?
  • Will it provide enough practicality for me?

We’re here to help you decide...


What is a convertible

A convertible, or cabriolet as it’s otherwise known, is a car with a retractable roof, which offers an exhilarating open-air driving experience. Usually the roof can be folded via an electronic mechanism or manually - it depends on the make and model.


Its retracting roof is what makes a convertible the ultimate car in which to enjoy the warmer months. Days where us Brits are treated to some sun can be appreciated even more with the option to go roofless!

For drivers who prioritise luxury, a convertible car is clearly an attractive choice. When the sun is shining, you can take to the countryside, the city, and beyond with no roof to hinder your enjoyment of a beautiful sunny day.

But for family life, a convertible probably won’t be able to provide all the space and practicality you need. In which case, you may have to put your convertible dream on hold and consider whether an SUV could be right for you.

What about when it raining

As we all know much too well, just because the Great British summer is here, it doesn’t necessarily mean we completely escape the rain and can leave our umbrellas at home.

Luckily, most convertible cars offer great versatility and can be transformed to shield you from the rain at the push of a button, without sacrificing an ounce of style. Rain needn’t get in the way of looking great!


So, although a convertible really comes into its own in the summertime, you can also enjoy exhilarating drives on pleasant days throughout the year.
