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.

Jaguar F-Type

If you’re looking for a convertible car to wow your audience, the Jaguar F-Type is, quite frankly, showstopping! With a range of engines, from 2.0 to 5.0 litres, you’ll have no difficulty finding the level of power to match your ego

Jaguar’s capable 10” infotainment touchscreen puts in-car entertainment, phone connectivity and navigation system all within easy reach.

And if you need any more confidence, driver assistance features, such as parking aids, rear camera, traffic sign recognition and blind spot monitor provide some reassurance.

In just 12 seconds, and at speeds of up to 30 mph, the convertible roof, made of noise-reduction fabric, can be raised or lowered to provide your ultimate driving co-star.

Abarth 695 Rivale

You’ll feel like a million dollars in the Abarth 695 Rivale - a stylish convertible car incorporating the legendary motor design skills of Abarth and the timeless beauty of yacht-builder, Riva.

Don’t be fooled by the 695 Rivale’s compact dimensions; it’s got a huge personality and, thanks to the Akrapovič exhaust, sounds amazing too.

Satin chrome moulding and an aquamarine waterline create exclusive body work in a nautical theme while lowered sport suspension, 17” alloy wheels and tinted windows provide extra star quality.

In the cabin, optional mahogany detailing complements the blue leather interior, with carbon fibre and aluminium trim. Onlookers will get a treat as the canvas roof gracefully folds on top of the boot at the flick of a switch.

Audi R8 Spyder

Reaching 62 mph from a standing start in just 3.2 secs, the Audi R8 Spyder is nothing short of explosive thanks to the 5.2L engine.

You’ll certainly have to fight for your share of the publicity with this everyday superstar car, especially during those 20 short seconds it takes to lower the roof.

The perfect fusion of digital dashboard and electric Nappa leather sports or bucket** seats creates a comfortable though spacious interior while a choice of paint finishes in metallic, pearl or solid colours, and twin-spoke or Y design alloys** keep the audience busy.

Ventilated wave brake discs or reinforced ceramic brakes** and responsive steering ensure excellent handling, keeping all eyes on you, always.

Romeo 4C Spider

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.

It may be beautiful and perform well, but the 4C Spider is far from shallow, with the inside providing as much entertainment as the exterior.

Sports seats in leather or microfibre, contrast stitching and carbon fibre inserts provide sophistication and comfort, while aluminium pedals and driver-centred controls remind us that Alfa Romeo is a star of the race track as well as the road

Whether you want to show off or just show up, a convertible car has got to be a great choice for anyone who wants to arrive in style. Get a closer look at all they have to offer at your local Swansway Group dealership.
