Top down, wind in hair, sun on face, exhaust note on loud — it’s a recipe few can argue against. And with the threat of cold fronts and daylight savings looming in the not-too-distant future, the thought of getting in some last-minute top-down driving has us pining for the best convertibles we’ve tested this year. These convertible cruisers have been the standouts over the past couple months.
Fiat 124 Spider
The second coming of the 124 Spider has been long awaited. Even when it’s parked next to its classic counterpart, it still holds its own.
Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet
There’s only one way to enjoy the South of France, and that’s topless.
Lamborghini Aventador Roadster
Nothing pairs with the lack of a roof quite like an Italian V12.
Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster
That being said, a German V12 isn’t a bad match, either.
Porsche 718 Boxster
New name, same great song and dance.
Range Rover Evoque Convertible
Modern SUV convertibles are generally hit or miss. The Evoque is most definitely the former.
