Convertibles for Every Budget

8 of 8

2016 Volkswagen Beetle

The VW Beetle is a subcompact that is even better as a convertible.  It hit No. 6 in our best convertibles rankings. Though its standard 170-horsepower turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder and 210-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder aren’t going to leave a Mustang GT in the dust, they provide peppy fun.

The car’s simple layout, iconic design, and mostly high-quality trim won points for the sub-$20,000 Beetle. Fairly comfy back seats, an array of standard technology (including Bluetooth and a 5-inch touch screen), and 29.9 cubic feet of cargo space also won fans.
