For most of the country, there is no better time to enjoy a drop-top than the fall. In that spirit, Bankrate presents a list of seven low-price convertibles to put some wind in your hair.
Low price was the only real filter in composing our list. To qualify, a convertible must have a manufacturer's suggested retail price, or MSRP, of less than $30,000 before delivery charges.
Some of our choices seat two, others four. We didn't insist on high fuel efficiency, but each gets at least 22 mpg in combined city and highway driving. Some get much better. All fuel economy numbers, prices and specifications are for models with automatic transmissions.
Fuel economy figures, as estimated by the Environmental Protection Agency, are presented as city mpg/highway mpg/combined mpg. Fall is the cusp of new model-year change, so some prices as noted are 2011 and others 2012.
Now, drop that top and get a little sun on your face.
