Despite the rather damp and chilly weather, more soft-top convertible cars, also known as cabriolets, are sold in the UK than in any other country in Europe except for Germany. Strangely it’s our cooler weather that makes us love a convertible, drivers in the Med wouldn’t thank you for a soft-top, preferring to be shielded from the heat of the day by a roof and blasting out the air-con.
There can be little more exhilarating experience that driving along a country lane on a sunny Autumn day, feeling the sun on your face and the breeze in your hair and that’s why convertibles, cabriolets, soft-tops, call them what you will, are so popular in the UK.
Better still, convertibles hold their value exceptionally well, so, they’re attractive to buy on PCP finance plans and worth more than their hard-topped stablemates when it comes to their resale value. At last, a choice you can make with head and your heart!
Here at Swansway we have a wide selection of convertibles, from supermini to SUV, ranging from the compact, bijoux and funky, rag-topped Fiat 500c, to the sexy, supercar Audi R8 Spyder and head-turning Range Rover Evoque convertible. In-between there’s something to suit everyone with convertible hatchbacks, saloons, coupes and sports cars.
