Convertibles: What’s New

convertibles buyers guide

The biggest new this year comes from an icon of the roadster world, the Mazda MX-5. An all-new fourth generation is set to go on sale this summer with lighter weight, more aggressive styling, new technology and all the goodness that has made the MX-5 Miata such a legend in the minds of automotive enthusiasts.

Another legendary sports car drops its top this year, the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang. Still available with a 5.0-liter V8 making plenty of horsepower, a four-cylinder turbocharged engine joins the line-up this year.

Porsche is adding yet another 911 convertible variant to its portfolio this year with the GTS. Powered by a 430 HP 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine, the GTS is for those want a bit more performance compared to a regular Carrera, but aren’t quite willing to pony up the money for the monstrous Turbo model.

Jaguar’s sexy F-Type convertible receives some substantial updates this year including a manual transmission for V6 models and a new all-wheel drive R version packing a 550 HP supercharged 5.0-liter V8.

The Audi TT is all-new for the 2016 model year and will once again be available as a convertible. Power comes from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 230 HP in TT form and 310 HP in the sportier TTS trim.

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Review

When VW introduced the “new” Beetle back in 1997 it instantly became an icon… for all the wrong reasons.
