11 Dec 4 Convertibles To Fall In Love With This Summer
With the looming threat of #melbournestorm hopefully behind us for another year, it’s time to put the top down, radio up and talk about those summer-friendly vehicles that’ll put the wind in your hair and a bit of street cred under your name: convertibles.
Unfortunately, there’s a common misconception among drivers that convertibles are only exclusively available to cashed-up movie stars and real estate moguls, when in fact they’re just like sedans and hatchbacks in the sense that there’s one for every price bracket, especially if you’re in the market for a quality used car.
So, if you thought a convertible was out of reach for you then think again, you could be a lot closer to the car of your dreams that you thought.
Here are four convertibles we’ve already fallen head over heels for this summer.
The first convertible we can’t stop ogling is the BMW 120i. BMW’s already have a name for themselves as one of the most popular luxury cars in the world, so add a soft-top roof and you’ve got yourself a premium ride that’ll be turning heads all over town.
With a 4 cylinder piston engine, leather seats, 6-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, cruise control and in-built navigation system, there’s almost no end to this car’s premium features and superb performance.
And of course, the last feature we have to call out is its soft, remote controlled power roof. With the press of a button your conservative (yet stylish) town car goes from low-key to luxe in next to no time at all.

Joining the BMW 120i in the premium car class is the Audi A5, and if you’ve ever owned an Audi before, you’ll understand that it doesn’t need a soft-top to stand out from crowd, so you know you’re in for a treat when it does.
Jam packed with mod-cons like audio input, Bluetooth connectivity, multi-function colour control screen, 8-speaker stereo and subwoofer, there’s no living room you’d rather be in than this entertainment-focused 2 door, 4 seat convertible.
Boasting a 4 cylinder 2.0L turbo petrol engine, parking assist, cruise control, multi-function steering wheel and a powered soft top roof, you’ll find joy in even the simplest summer supermarket runs.
For something a little different and outside of its traditional model realm, try the Nissan 370Z. Compared to the others on our list, this soft-top on wheels has the guts and look of a traditional sports car.
With a 6 cylinder 3.7L petrol engine under the hood, and a powerful set of features to match, there’s little doubt about this car’s on-road performance. In terms of entertainment offerings, you can enjoy iPod input, CD player, 8-speaker stereo, Bluetooth and multi-function colour control screen, plus two sound pounding subwoofers.
If you aren’t already convinced that the Nissan 370Z should be at the top of your driving list this summer, then maybe the climate and cruise control, sports seats, multi-function steering wheel, 19 inch alloy wheels and powered soft top can sway you.
Volkswagen Golf 118TSI
The Volkswagen is one of the most popular modern makes in Australia, thanks to the affordability of its low-range Polo, which means it’s only a matter of time until people clue into the affordability ofa qualityused Volkswagen Golf 118TSI.
Featuring a modest but strong 4 cylinder 1.4L engine, 7 speed sports automatic dual clutch and 17 inch alloy wheels, the 118TSI is mean to drive AND look at. And thanks to iPod input, Bluetooth connectivity, CD player and 6 speaker stereo, it’s more than a dream to hit the road in.
In terms of drivability, you’ll enjoy ABS brakes, electronic stability, traction control, cruise control, speed sensitive power steering and sports suspension. Not to mention a soft-top power roof that’ll give your summer road trips to the coast a new edge.
