Hello Summer! Our Favourite Used Convertible Cars

30 Jun 2023

With longer days and better weather ahead, it’s time to start thinking about those sunny road trips and warm evening drives, which to us screams one thing, it’s officially convertible season!

The good news is that at Tangelo we offer a wide range of used convertible cars to suit all needs, from four-seater soft tops that accommodate all the family, to high-performance two-seaters, and rare edition roadsters with plenty of spec. So on that note, here are some of our favourite used convertible cars…

Mini Convertible

If you’re looking for a cheaper route into the world of convertible cars, then the Mini Convertible offers you just that, plus plenty of personality, interior features, and a great drive. Boasting a comfortable cabin, the Mini Convertible surprises with ample legroom, and plenty of shoulder and headroom with the roof up, so taller drivers don’t have to worry about spending more.

When it comes to safety, you’ll be pleased to hear that the soft-top Mini comes with a good level of safety kit that includes six airbags, a wide range of electronic driving aids, and pop-up hoods that kick in if the car rolls over in an accident.

Decent performance and an enjoyable drive are obviously two key factors when you’re looking for a used convertible, and the Mini offers both. When it comes to the drive, Mini pride themselves on ‘fun-filled and joyous’ driving experiences, and their choice of three petrol engines make their pledge a reality. The entry-level Mini Convertible comes with a 126 horsepower engine, the Cooper S version boasts a 192 horsepower engine that offers the performance you’d expect from a hot hatch, and the John Cooper Works model offers an impressive 132 horsepower engine that packs a real punch.

Abarth 124 Spider

Manufactured by Mazda under the Abarth marque, the 124 Spider is an exciting, high-performance version of the Fiat 124 Spider, and boy does this model offer plenty of thrills! Known for its easy handling and fantastic performance, the Abarth 124 Spider is the ideal option if you’re looking for an aggressive two-seater roadster.  

With its infamous Abarth Scorpion badges, blacked-out wheels, and striking red trim, the 124 Spider stands out from the crowd, and that continues in the interior with the car’s alcantara trim and Abarth sport seating with red stitching.

Many convertible enthusiasts believed that the Mazda MX-5’s chassis could comfortably handle some more engine power, and the Abarth 124 Spider proves just that. Its 1.4 MultiAir turbo petrol engine has had a power boost, and now offers 168bhp and an impressive 250Nm of torque. And it's not just the performance that impresses, but the fantastic sound. Installed on the 124 Spider is the Record Monza Exhaust System, which to put it simply creates a very satisfying noise indeed, you’ll hear it before you see it…

Mercedes-Benz SL400

Known for their great performance, advanced car features and driving assists, and of course brand prestige, a convertible Mercedes-Benz is always a popular option for soft-top buyers, and that is certainly the case for the SL400. Equipped with a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 engine, the SL400 offers a thrilling driving experience with its 362 horsepower and 500Nm of torque which allows the car to reach 60mph in just 5.1 seconds.

What’s better is that driver and passenger comfort has not been sacrificed for this performance, as the SL400 is known for its smooth driving experience and premium feel inside. Its retractable hardtop means the ride is quiet and comfortable when the top is up, and offers an exciting, open-air experience when down. Adding to interior comfort is the Two Zone Thermotronic Automatic AC which ensures that everyone in the vehicle can stay warm and cosy, whilst also enjoying the thrill of the wind through their hair.

Mercedes-Benz are known for leading the way when it comes to advanced technology and driving assists, and that is no different for the SL400 which comes with plenty of features. These include the 12.3-inch infotainment system, adaptive cruise control, and a rear-view camera. It also has a number of safety features, including blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, Active Brake Assist, and plenty more.

Jaguar F-Type

The Jaguar brand is one that exhumes luxury and sport, and the F-Type is the perfect example, as this powerful and agile convertible is a popular choice for car enthusiasts on the hunt for a combination of high performance and prestige. The stylish design of the F-Type is one key reason the car is as popular as it is, with its long hood, wide stance, and aggressive lines coming together to form a sleek and sporty convertible that turns heads. Of course, this comes at a bigger price than more affordable and family-friendly convertibles.

To match the Jaguar F-Type’s eye-catching design is its choice of impressive engines. This range includes a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a 3.0-liter V6 engine, and a 5.0-liter V8 engine, all of which deliver fantastic performance, with the V8 engine options producing up to 575 horsepower.

When it comes to handling, the F-Type ticks the boxes, with its precise and responsive steering making it a pleasure to drive on winding roads. Its suspension is well-tuned to balance sportiness and comfort, and its brakes are strong and responsive.

As you’d expect with a premium brand like Jaguar, the F-Type Convertible is kitted out with a solid range of advanced technology features, including a touchscreen infotainment system, an impressive sound system, and advanced safety features like lane departure warning and automatic emergency braking.
