A Guide to Convertibles

A Guide to Convertibles

What is a convertible?

A convertible is a car that can be driven with or without a roof in place. However, you can also get convertibles that aren’t necessarily offered with a roof, referred to as a spyders, which tend to be higher end, such as Lamborghini models.

What are the benefits of a convertible?

Convertibles are captivating cars, as not only are they visually appealing with their drop-top roof, but they also focus on providing an enjoyable drive. They possess a classic sporty look and have a sleek design that adds to the performance of the car.

They are incredibly versatile as the ability to remove the roof means they are the perfect cars for those hot summers’ days and if the weather takes a turn, you can quickly bring the roof back up at the touch of a button. They can also be ideal for drivers who want a second car or a weekend run-around as they are tailored more towards amusement.

The lack of doors and frames improves your visibility, therefore making it easier to manoeuvre and park as you have a wider range of vision.

Which convertible should I buy?

This depends upon a driver’s preferences on multiple factors including manufacturer, budget and whether they would like a new or used convertible. It is no easy task to select the right convertible for you, however, Bristol Street motors has a range of options available in which will be covered in the following sections.
