Few hatchbacks successfully make the conversion to a convertible, but the Peugeot 206 CC was one of them. CC stands for Coupe Cabriolet, so while many rivals are soft-tops, it has a folding hard-top, which boosts refinement.

Boot space is obviously reduced if you fold the roof, while the back seats are better used as extra luggage space. As it's based on the 206 hatch, the CC isn't the best driver's car, either - but it's a likeable little cabrio.
