Convertibles offer the freedom and excitement of top-down motoring, and create a sensation of being a part of your surroundings that no sunroof can offer. Convertibles are available as a two seat roadster or with four-seats, and most roofs fold electronically these days. Both soft and folding hardtop models are available, and all are far more leak-resistant than the convertibles of old, which makes them much easier to live with through all seasons.
