Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible
The 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible is easily one of the best convertibles on the market in the UK. If you want to buy British, then buying an F-TYPE Convertible is the best choice in 2016.
Jaguar’s sexy F-TYPE is available in both Convertible and Coupe body styles. If you want to experience top-driving, then we recommend the F-TYPE Convertible – even if the UK weather is a tad unpredictable…
Three trim levels are available for UK customers: F-TYPE, F-TYPE S and F-TYPE R. Depending on the version chosen, the Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible will come with either a 335bhp 3.0-litre V6 engine (standard), a 375bhp 3.0 V6 (F-TYPE S) or a more powerful 543bhp 5.0-litre V8 (F-TYPE R).
If you go for one of the AWD models (F-TYPE S and F-TYPE R), then you’ll be able to fling your Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible around corners at speed with ease.
Only care about speed? Then go out and buy the Jaguar F-TYPE R AWD Convertible and you’ll be rewarded with a benchmark sprint time of 3.9 seconds and a dizzying top speed of 186mph.
In addition, the Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible is one of the best-equipped convertibles in the UK market in 2016.
Standard equipment includes sports seats, deployable rear spoiler, eight-inch colour-touch screen, sat-nav, Bluetooth, and a Meridian Sound System with 10 speakers.
The Mazda MX-5 is one of our favourite cars and definitely worthy of being called one of the best convertibles in the UK in 2016.
Sleek, reliable, well-equipped and fun to drive, the all-new Mazda MX-5 convertible is offered to UK buyers solely in its popular soft-top form – no coupe version is available yet.
Only released last year, the new Mazda MX-5 has captured the hearts of many UK motorists and will certainly continue to do so in 2016.
Six trim levels are available for the 2016 Mazda MX-5 in the UK, with all coming well-equipped and offering two punchy petrol engines.
UK car buyers will be able to choose from a 129bhp or 158bhp SKYACTI-G petrol engine, which pushes the Mazda MX-5 convertible to a benchmark sprint time of 7.3 seconds and top speed of 133mph.
The 2016 MX-5 convertible will also return average fuel economy of up to 47.1mpg and emit as low as 139g/km of CO2. Not a bad figure at all for a convertible!
All versions of Mazda’s ever-popular convertible come with 16-inch alloys, manual air con, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, and AUX and USB inputs.
The Mazda MX-5 is the best-selling two-seat sports car in history, so we know that, like us, customers in the UK will love the convertible in 2016.
The Audi TT Roadster is a common sight on UK roads, simply because customers can’t get enough of the convertible!
You can be sure that this won’t change in 2016 with many buyers still opting for the Audi TT Roadster as their convertible of choice and saying it bests its rivals.
As with the Jaguar F-TYPE before, the Audi TT is available with both a soft- and hard-top, called the TT Roadster and TT Coupe, respectively. Which model is best for you in 2016 depends on whether you want to experience top-down driving or not – it’s definitely great in the summer time.
Audi also offers two TTS variants that come with more kit and more power – for a premium, of course.
Choose the standard Audi TT convertible and you’ll have access to a good choice of engines. The powerplants include the 1.8 TFSI and 2.0 TFSI petrol units, along with a 2.0 TDI ultra diesel engine, offering the lowest emissions and best fuel economy.
Love quattro? Then you’ll love the 2016 Audi TT convertible with the 2.0 TFSI engine that features quattro technology. Convertible handling in the UK has never been better!
On the other hand, go for the 2016 Audi TTS Convertible if you want pure performance, while ticking the box for the six-speed S tronic transmission to go with the 306bhp 2.0 TFSI engine and quattro technology.
This powertrain will give customers in the UK a 0-60mph time of 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 155mph.
The Audi TT convertible also has a lot of cool features for buyers in the UK to play with, including air conditioning, Audi drive select with five modes and MMI control panel with MMI Touch. Leather/Alcantara upholstery and 18-inch alloy wheels are also offered as standard.
You can see why many UK customers think the Audi TT convertible is one of the best soft-tops on the market in 2016.
It’s sexy, it’s muscular and it simply looks powerful; we’re talking about the 2016 Ford Mustang, one of the best convertibles on the market in the UK today.
As with many models in this list, the Ford Mustang is offered in two body styles in the UK: open-top Convertible and Fastback coupe. With summer on the horizon, we’re putting the convertible version of the Mustang under the spotlight.
Depending on whether you want power or efficiency is the first port of call. Want to reduce your carbon footprint? Go for the 2.3 EcoBoost version of the Ford Mustang, as this only produces 179g/km of CO2.
If like Jeremy Clarkson you want to get behind the wheel of a car and shout “POWER!" then the 2016 Ford Mustang Convertible with the 5.0-litre V8 is best for you. This model will reward UK customers with a whopping 410bhp and 530Nm of torque.
As massive petrolheads, this is the best version of the 2016 Ford Mustang in our eyes. Of course we love being able to hit 62mph from a standing start in 4.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 155mph.
The 2016 Ford Mustang Convertible not only packs a massive punch, it’s also filled with enough tech to make the geeks of the UK wet their pants with excitement.
Ford has equipped all versions of its 2016 Mustang Convertible with 19-inch alloys, dual-zone air conditioning, Ford SYNC 2 with Voice Control and eight-inch TFT colour touch-screen, cruise control, rear-view camera, sports-style front seats, and Ford KeyFree system.
Love the appeal of American muscle cars? Then the 2016 Ford Mustang is definitely the best convertible for you in the UK market.
BMW M4 Convertible
Sleek and oh so stylish, the 2016 BMW M4 Convertible is one of the most stunning models in the German automaker’s UK line-up, having replaced the M3 Convertible and Coupe models in 2014.
Many customers in the UK see the BMW M4 as one of the best convertibles on the market, thanks to its high level of equipment and powerful engine under the bonnet.
Powering the BMW M4 Convertible is a 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that cranks out 425bhp and 550Nm of torque. So that means you’ll be able to burn down a straight UK road at speeds of up to 156mph, after hitting 62mph from a standstill in just 4.3 seconds.
Best plan of action is to keep a spare pair of underpants in your car in case you put the pedal to the mettle and scare yourself silly!
The 2016 BMW M4 Convertible comes with a whole host of equipment for UK buyers. All versions of the M4 Convertible include 19-inch light alloys, dual-zone air-con, cruise control, 8.8-inch colour display screen, leather upholstery, BMW Professional Multimedia Navigation system, and more.
You can see why we, along with many other UK buyers, think that the 2016 BMW M4 is among the best convertibles to buy this year. To many customers, the M4 Convertible just makes perfect sense.
