Best-Selling Convertibles of 2015

When the sky is blue and the day is warm and sunny, nothing is better than feeling the breeze flowing through your hair from the front seat of a convertible, and 2015 brought several models that people will be talking about for years to come. A wide variety of convertibles is available for any budget, and they are all a blast to drive, but following are the top five of 2015.

1. 2015 Ford Mustang

The 2015 Ford Mustang marks the beginning of the sixth generation and the 50th anniversary of this iconic American convertible. This year, the Mustang was redesigned as a luxury sports car with a generous power boost. The base model runs on a 3.7-liter V-6 while the GT sports a 435-horsepower V-8. When you add the optional Performance Pack to the GT, you have a car that can stand up to high-dollar imports.

2. 2015 Mini Cooper Roadster

Even though the Roadster only carries a four-cylinder engine, it has strong acceleration and more power than you would think. The Mini Cooper will never compare to performance sports cars, but you can get the most out of it by choosing either the Cooper S or John Cooper Works trims, both of which include turbochargers. The body of the Roadster is extremely attractive, but what makes it really shine is the high-quality interior.

3. 2015 Chevrolet Corvette

If there is one American model that can beat out the Ford Mustang, it’s the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette. Both the Stingray and the high-performance Z06 include convertible trims, and their marks are off the charts in testing. The Stingray has a 6.2-liter V-8, and the Z06 comes with a seven-speed manual transmission or an eight-gear automatic. If you want a car designed in the U.S. but don’t want to sacrifice power, this is the one for you.

4. 2015 BMW 2-Series

The 2015 BMW 2-Series is in its second year as a replacement for the 1-Series Coupe, and it has been highly reviewed by both professionals and owners for its aesthetics and handling. This is an entry-level BMW convertible that is made for its style rather than its power. You can choose from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine or a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder. In addition, an option is available for all-wheel drive.

5. 2015 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a convertible that suits drivers of many different tastes. This mid-size vehicle is available in a total of 21 styles and trims, but it is the Cabriolet RWD that offers the convertible body. The E400 sports a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 while the E550 includes a 4.7-liter V-8. If you want a sleek convertible that will turn heads and make tracks, the E-Class will leave you satisfied.
