To paraphrase the words of Glen Frey, the heat is about to be back on. After a year of record-breaking snowfalls and frigid temperatures, winter is finally releasing its grip. Temperate days are about to be on the menu. This means it’s a good time to consider a list of the 10 most affordable 2014 convertibles.
Now typically, the convertible version of a model goes for considerably more than the closed version of the same car. So, when we’re talking the 10 most affordable convertibles, the word “affordable” is a relative term. In this case, we set the cut-off at $45,000—given the average new car transaction price these days is hovering around $32,000.
So, if you’re wondering why the BMW 4 Series convertible, or the Infiniti Q60 convertible is missing, it’s simple—they cost too much to be here. Also, if you’re looking for your favorite convertible sports cars, they’re on a completely separate list. You’ll find those on our list of the 10 Best Roadsters for 2014; thus there is no Miata, BMW Z4, or 370Z to be found here either.
What we do have (with the exception of one model) are four-seater convertibles, with a base price of less than $45,000.
