Summer comes and the desire to drive a convertible sometimes hit a myth. All convertibles are expensive. Crisis and convertibles do not have to necessarily be opposed. At one time the convertibles may have been considered frivolous and superficial, but this tendency has changed. Now many of the convertibles and roadsters are useful for both, daily use and for those cheerful walks. Models with retractable hardtops offer the same protection from weather and wind than a standard coupe, as well as similar load capacity thanks to the advanced folding mechanisms. Furthermore, the modern soft tops provide glass rear for better visibility and the ability to folding while walking at 30 mph. These types of cars have come a long way. Among the many models available today, here are the most affordable and cheapest 2012 new convertibles.


  • The new 2012 / 2013 Smart ForTwo Passion Cabriolet model has a starting / MSRP price of $17,890
  • Fuel efficiency: 34 MPG City - 38 MPG Highway

  • This little car fits perfectly into any city. You can go, walk through it, parking without problems and return home leisurely. With the smart ForTwo Convertible you will discover new mobility around the city with maximum comfort, agility, safety, and ecology. The smart was a project of the watches and accessories brand Swatch. It is a car made to minimize the size as much as possible and maximize personal mobility in town. Its dimensions are very small and it has some attractive features as the option to change the plastic panels for other of a different color, and allow you to park in front of the street in the middle of the other cars parked parallel to the sidewalk. Swatch spoke first with Volkswagen, but thanks to Ferdinand Piech, who had other plans for a city car, they went to Mercedes-Benz to offer them to be their official engines supplier and also to get help with production. The name comes after an agreement reached to make it something neutral between the two companies, so 'smart' doesn't have to do something with a smart concept, but for "Swatch Mercedes Art". In the convertible version of the 2012 smart ForTwo you can retract the soft top as if it were a large sunroof or completely with the same button, but also you can remove the side supports and put a special compartment in the lid to trunk enjoy the outdoors altogether. This can be a problem if it starts raining unexpectedly because you have to stop the car, get off, open the trunk, install the two supports and close the hood from the inside. The new 2012 Smart ForTwo Passion Cabriolet is the cheapest convertible you can find right now in the US market.

    FIAT 500C

  • The new 2012 Fiat 500c Pop, which is the convertible model of this brand along with the Lounge, has a starting / MSRP price of $19,500
  • Fuel efficiency: 27 MPG City - 32 MPG Highway


  • It is cheerful as a sunny morning. This is the new Fiat convertible, the 500C. With just open its elegant and functional hood you can enjoy the sunshine while you drive around the city comfortably. The little Fiat 500C unfolds its soft top on the side supports that can not be removed, unlike the rivals that do allow it. Although it highlights and is also its biggest advantage, that the roof can be folded on the outside without taking up trunk space. At the vanguard of ecology, the 500C is equipped with the latest technology that reduces emissions of particulate pollutants and makes it saves fuel. Combines to perfection and elegantly the 3 colors offered for its top (ivory, red and black) with 11 available for upholstery. Fiat took care of every detail to the extreme to make your 500C unique in every way. The cabin is large enough in all its dimensions for four occupants, in fact, it is exactly the same space offered by the Fiat 500 coupe. Even the clear height, by the presence of the soft top, has suffered. The rear seat access is easy, but requires two actions: (1) tilting the seat with the lever of the upper vertex and (2) run the seat forward using the handle of the base of the front seats, without this last position has "memory" available. This little bug is our second candidate in the list of the new cheapest convertibles available this 2012.
