Convertible cars aren’t just for the summer months; they add a bit of glamour to the road all year around, with the added bonus of being able to let the top down when the sun starts to shine. With sporty looks and aerodynamic lines, you’re sure to be the centre of attention whenever you drive one.

Make an entrance driving one of these beauties and you’ll certainly steal the limelight. Top up or top down, you’ll quite literally blow the roof off! Here are some of our favourite convertible cars. Which one fits the bill for you?

Audi A3 Cabriolet

All Audis are stars but the Audi A3 Cabriolet will add a little extra je ne sais quoi to any driveway. Sat nav, sports seats and dual-zone climate control come as standard - although there's nothing ‘standard’ about this tastefully designed character.

Front sports seats with side bolsters and a central armrest provide a comfortable posing position from where you can operate the convertible switch that tucks the roof neatly away in the boot. The optional virtual cockpit will help keep everything under control with a 12.3” full colour digital instrument cluster.

The stylish combo of Xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights and dynamic indicators attract admiring eyes, day or night, and 17” 5-arm or 18” 5-parallel-spoke alloy wheels** mean your car will be tastefully dressed from top to tyre.

Every drive will be an Oscar-winning performance in the aerodynamically sculpted Alfa Romeo 4C Spider. Lightweight materials provide stunning agility and performance. Launch Control maximises acceleration, automatically co-ordinating the gearbox, traction and power to this convertible’s best advantage.

The strong soft top is easy to remove whenever and wherever the mood takes you.
