A convertible doesn't need to be fast to be enjoyable. Getting the wind in your hair and the breeze on your face isn't necessarily more fun or satisfying at really high speeds, so if you've always wanted a convertible, don't let yourself be held back. There are plenty of new convertibles that are more modest under the hood than you might expect, but they're still crowd pleasers. If you want a convertible but can't swing the high sticker price or escalating fuel costs that'll come with one of the sports car or luxury inspired convertible models, maybe it's time to consider scaling back a bit. The list of the top 10 low horsepower convertibles has plenty of comfortable and attractive options. Don't forget, the drop top is the most important part, even on the least powerful convertibles.

Auto manufacturers see a lot of their less powerful vehicles, like low horsepower convertible cars, as good ways to gain new customers. Someone who is shopping for a convertible on a budget and has limited the search to the least powerful convertible cars, because they tend to be the most affordable, has a lot of other factors to consider even after horsepower is taken out of the equation. Engine selection might still be a factor for some of these potential customers, especially if efficiency is a priority. Other buyers are likely to focus on aesthetics, since driving a convertible is such a sensory experience, and even convertibles with low horsepower are likely to turn heads if the style's done right. Car designers put a lot of effort into ensuring that even low horsepower convertibles look contemporary, high quality, and in line with the rest of the brand's style trademarks. And the convertible cars with low horsepower, finally, have to feature a welcoming interior, because long top-down cruises in a comfortable cabin are just as enjoyable at leisurely speeds.
