Breathe the fresh air ; get dizzy, hair swirling in the wind ; follow the summer bloom ; smell the scents of the countryside closer to the elements: what other architecture car that the convertible allows you to reconnect with those simple joys of existence? A bulwark against the gloom, the convertible is an ode to freedom. The magic formula to get a lot of sensations at speeds tolerated. Essence of the automobile, this vehicle is also conjugated in the plural. To accompany your need to escape, we have selected four proposals responding to the logic of purchase and inclinations are different. Our only guide: the pleasure in small price.The sporty roadster
If it is a vehicle that does not lead to melancholy, it is the Mazda MX-5. Heir of roadsters English in vogue in the 1960s, the japanese became in the space of thirty years the cabriolet most sold in the world. This is more than fair for this model which has no equivalent on the market and that fits perfectly to the definition of a fun car. Available from 28.900€ with the 1.5-liter 132-hp, we prefer the 2-liter 184 hp, the roadster japanese grey in the first kilometres. Sitting low to the ground, one has the feeling of being one with the machine. The small gear lever falls perfectly to hand and handles with the wrist, like a single-seater. The management replied du tac au tac. The MX-5 spins of one turn to the other as possibly being on rails, and recovery always energetically. The ransom of a feather weight (under one tonne). The simplicity of design, which passes through a hood manual as easy as it is quick to use, is not obtained at the expense of comfort and amenities, from state of the art. Still, the architecture 2 seats and the trunk tiny (130 l) stick to the MX-5 in a register especially well. The families will follow other paths.Mercedes C-Class cabriolet.

following the withdrawal of the generalist brands, the market for convertible 4 seater is now in the hands of the players in the premium. The offer starts to 26.400€ with the Mini One (102 hp). Its compactness requires some concessions. At least you don't need four proper seats, it will go to the derivatives of sedans. From a 4.43 million and 37.650€, BMW offers the 2 Series, powered by the 3-cylinder 136 hp and 170 g/km of CO2 (218i). Again, space is at a premium in the rear seats and the load volume does not exceed 280 litres, soft top stowed.
Always with a head covering, electric canvas, the Mercedes C-Class does take an extra step. Exceeding the 2 Series of 25 cm in length, the convertible in the star ensures superior benefits: the two rear seats are more livable, the loading volume reached 360 litres) and air movements are better controlled. The Class C has the systems Aircap and Airscarf. The first combines a deflector on the top of the windshield to a metal grid to deflect the air. The second is a heating of the neck, blowing from nozzles located on the seat back. Built for the grand touring, the C-Class puts the emphasis on the quality of finish and comfort. The price starts at 48.150€ with the C 180 equipped with the 4-cylinder 156 hp (151 g/km CO2).
motorists who do not see the life that height will be orientated towards the Volkswagen T-Roc Convertible. Despite past failures, this is the third time that a brand decapsulates an SUV. Is this the right one? The tariff more attractive - from of 34,600 euros for the model 1.0 IST-115 ch - pleads for the vehicle, which takes the place of the Golf cabriolet was not renewed. To increase the boot volume of 280 l and accommodate long items, simply open a hatch and switch the folders of the back seat. Offering the same type of benefits that a T-Roc, this variant is discovered electrically in 9 seconds, even at speeds of up to 30 km/h.The Volkswagen T-Roc Convertible.

Finally, some do not see the cabriolet at the wheel of an old, if possible, a youngtimer, a model of the 1970s and 1980s, which will remind them of their adolescence. For a reasonable budget in terms of purchase price (between 10.000 and 14.000€) of maintenance, you can access the kings of the market in the 1980s: the Peugeot 205 CT/CTI or the VW Golf Cabriolet. Nicknamed "baskets of strawberries" because of the presence of a pole fixed to stiffen the chassis, these models to re-engage with forgotten sensations: soft-top manual, whirlpool air high, engine is noisy, steering not power assisted. Alfred de Musset was right: what matter the bottle, provided that you have drunk.The Peugeot 205 CT.

The suppression of road have made me the desire to make me happy with a vehicle. What good, after having paid the VAT, the penalty, the gray card I punish for the slightest deviation.
So I was lagging behind, to the limitation that is required, forgetting even that I led.
