Price estimate – £3,400
Back when it was still sold new the small and quirky Ford StreeKa was considered an impressively affordable way to go driving with an open top.
Nowadays the StreeKa is now available as a used car model at terrifically low value. The car’s compact nature helps to make it one of the more nimble convertibles and its charming looks still hold up well today.
The 94bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine is a fine runner and the StreetKa also offers a smooth drive. The 0-60mph sprint is covered in 11.7 seconds and the top speed is 107mph. Overall the supermini-based Ford StreetKa represents a real bargain convertible to those seeking a small but still reasonably practical motor.
Price estimate – £3,500
Ever-present in the UK convertible market, the Mazda MX-5 has been highly rated and a top selling convertible in Britain for a long time now. Consequently there are many used examples of this car which can be found in the UK market, and almost every one represents a real bargain.
While earlier models may lack somewhat in practicality, the more important thing is that even the earliest examples of the MX-5 are fun to drive with or without the roof deployed. MX-5 used models should also prove to be both reliable and fairly cheap to run.
Saab 9-3 Convertible
Price estimate – £3,990
The four-seater soft-top 9-3 Convertible remains a genuine alternative to convertible cars provided by popular German premium brands such as BMW and Mercedes.
UK motorists can find this Saab convertible when viewing Perrys used cars search online, and with this you can find a decent quality used product. The 9-3’s fabric roof is fast acting and can be operated at speeds of up to 20mph.
Rear passenger space and boot capacity in the Saab 9-3 are also highly respectable for a convertible car, sealing the model’s position as a real bargain used convertible.
Vauxhall Astra TwinTop
Price estimate – £5,400
While Vauxhall have recently launched the new Cascada to the UK market, an earlier example, the Astra TwinTop, still offers motorists a sleek convertible to those requiring something at a very low price.
It’s not as big as the brand’s newest convertible, but the Vauxhall Astra TwinTop still offers a decent-sized boot and a sizeable cabin for passengers.
Furthermore with its diverse engine range with outputs ranging from 115bhp to 200bhp, the TwinTop also offers potent performance and an exciting driver. The convertible roof is also of decent quality, helping to make this used car a real bargain at below six grand.
Renault Megane CC
Price estimate – £5,300
The Renault Megane CC is one of the most stylish bargain convertibles available in the used UK market.
It’s also a very comfortable car to drive and gives passengers a neatly presented cabin and an airy glass roof to go with it.
The multiple engine options, with outputs varying from 109bhp to 162bhp, should offer something for pretty much everyone.
For those looking for a classy and smooth convertible on a small budget, you could do far worse then look into investing in a used example of this French and exotic convertible motor.
