Like many hardtop convertibles, the BMW Z4, Infiniti Q60, Volvo C70 and Mercedes-Benz Roadster are considered luxury vehicles. Upscale vehicle manufacturers such as BMW, Lexus, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz and Infiniti offer a wide range of luxury hardtop convertibles. Elegant designs, luxurious interiors and expensive features characterize luxury hardtops.
The Lotus Elise, Chevrolet Camaro and Mazda MX-5 Miata hardtop convertibles are sports vehicles. These cars were optimized for speed, appearance and aerodynamics. They're suitable for daily driving but are often utilized in racing tournaments due to performance capabilities. According to vehicle price lists, sports hardtop convertibles generally cost significantly less than their luxury counterparts.
The Chrysler 200 and Volkswagen Eos are affordable sedans engineered for daily use. These hardtop convertibles make good commuter vehicles due to their comfortable designs, spacious interiors and fuel efficiency.
The Jeep Wrangler is the only hardtop convertible with off-road capabilities. The Wrangler has an advantage over other hardtop options because it is engineered to perform in harsh terrain and poor weather conditions.
