A Convertible Is For Christmas, Not Just Summer

Perrys is offering to make it a cool yule with some ‘sleighs’ that could dramatically streamline Santa’s route this Christmas Eve.

Open-Top Rides

The open-top rides, packed with cutting-edge technology from Vauxhall and Mazda, would allow Dasher and his mates to enjoy a long overdue retirement, while Santa makes his yearly deliveries in a far more sophisticated way.

Presents In The Boot

Travelling such huge distances around the world means Mr. Claus currently spends millions on carrots to fuel his reindeer each year. The impressive fuel efficiency, comfort and punchy performance of the Vauxhall Cascada and Mazda MX-5 convertibles would reduce his fuel costs, while keeping the wind flowing through his beard. Also, the cars can store extra presents in their boots, which the reindeer definitely can’t do.

Mere Mortals

On the other hand, it would be sad news indeed if Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen disappeared from the Christmas scene. So it’s a good job the Vauxhall Cascada and Mazda MX-5 models are available for mere mortals to snap up before Santa gets his mitts on them. Let’s face it; he’d have to choose which cool convertible car he wanted anyway, and that would be a long, hard decision for him to make during the busiest time of his year.

So, just in case you happen to be after a ‘sleigh ride’ with a difference for Christmas – and way beyond, here’s a run down of the Cascada and MX-5.

Vauxhall Cascada

The Cascada is an outstanding full-size, four seat convertible with premium qualities and technologies at a mainstream price. It’s an exciting car because the full-sized convertible sector tends only to be occupied by very costly cars from premium manufacturers. With the Cascada, you get high levels of equipment, technology and luxury but with an affordable price-tag.

Mazda MX-5

Meanwhile, the lightest MX-5 since the iconic original, the all-new Mazda MX-5 is shorter, lower and wider than the previous car, with the smallest overhangs and lowest centre of gravity yet. These dynamic proportions ensure that the Mazda MX-5’s styling reflects its focus on driving pleasure in an unmistakably contemporary and dynamic way.

Featuring Mazda’s award-winning SKYACTIV technology, the  MX-5’s ultra-efficient lightweight petrol engines deliver new levels of performance and economy. Across the range the all-new Mazda MX-5 features alloy wheels, LED headlights, a leather steering wheel, plus a lightweight and sleek fabric hood.

So, if you need to replace your old car and want to get an open top bargain for the summer, now’s the time – while the rest of the population are focused on turkeys, mistletoe and glitter.
