2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata
What we think
Nearly single-handedly responsible for the resurrection of the cheap, fun-to-drive convertible in America, the Mazda MX-5 Miata is a solid choice in every category. The little roadster has grown up in 2008 with an available retractable hard top to seal out road noise when you aren’t working on your tan. Of course, the two-seater still retains enough of its youthful high jinks to bring out the teenager in anyone.

2008 MINI Cooper
Convertible

2008 VW Eos Convertible

2008 Volkswagen Eos 3

2008 Volkswagen Eos

From headlights that turn toward the way you’re steering to heated windshield washer nozzles, the Eos is by far the most comfortable affordable convertible. It even has rain-sensing windshield wipers. We’re not kidding. Bang for your buck, this VW is where it’s at.
