Get ready for summer with our selection of open-top bargains

We review lots of new convertibles here at Auto Express - from the modest Mazda MX-5 to the amazing Lamborghini Huracan Spyder. But if you don't have quite that much of a budget to play with, or if you simply prefer to save a fortune and buy a used model, we're here to help with our top 10 best second-hand convertibles.

The British Summer is fast approaching - or at least we think it is. Still, we're nothing if not hopeful, and that's why convertible sales in the UK are still very strong. We actually buy more convertibles than our continental cousins - the French, Spanish and Italians. This is because despite the image of hot-weather drop-top motoring, convertibles are more suited to milder climates - when the weather is really hot, you'd be better off in a hard-top car with the air-conditioning on.

Demand for convertibles in the UK rises sharply towards the middle of the year, with everyone hoping to catch a glimpse of the sun and feel the wind in their hair. For us Brits, a cabriolet is just a way of squeezing every single bit of enjoyment out of our too-short summers.

Thankfully, for the used buyer, there's a huge amount of choice out there when it comes to buying a used convertible. No matter what your budget is, you'll be able to grab something from our top 10. Click the links below or to the side to see what we've chosen.
