Convertibles give their drivers a sense of freedom like no other car can, which explains why they are so popular when it comes to United States auto sales.

“Convertibles are the ultimate automotive expression, and our new list has the topless vehicle that suits every style and personality,” said Founder and CEO Doug Hamlin. “Some of these models are high-intensity sports cars with the price tag to match, but others are very affordable and still pack quite a punch. Using the New Cars buying guide, readers can research and even request a quote on any convertible they like.”

Perhaps the most recognizable is the Ford Mustang, an attractive combination of style and muscle for under $30,000.
