It was another muscle-car melee in today’s Autobytel poll—but it didn’t start out that way. We simply asked readers which of the growing number of affordable drop-tops would be their favorite choice for summer cruising, and the result saw the Chevy Camaro dominate against its archrival, the Ford Mustang. And while the lack of an open-air model kept the Dodge Challenger out of the challenge, it was another Chrysler group product—the Jeep Wrangler Sport—that claimed the third spot on the podium, albeit in a tie with another classic: The VW Beetle convertible. Perhaps surprisingly, one of the segment’s iconic entries, the Mazda MX-5 Miata, finished in the second flight of choices, tying with the Fiat 500c and only finishing ahead of the MINI Convertible.
Which reasonably priced convertible would you like to drive this summer?
