Sometimes, you just want to let the top down and have some fun. The used convertible market is packed with a variety of exciting cars — options range from luxury models to muscle cars that will provide you with outstanding performance capabilities. Fortunately, if you’re shopping for a used convertible, Autotrader ranked used convertible vehicles priced under $25,000. Here are the top five models that made the list: 

1. The 2015 Audi A5

You know, a luxury model had to snag the number one spot. The Audi A5 is a two-door luxury vehicle with a chic interior to match. The 2015 model year is one of the best you can buy, too, reports Autotrader

The reason? That’s when the Quattro all-wheel drive system was added to all Audi models as a standard feature. You won’t find all-wheel drive standard with many convertible cars, so it’s something to consider while you shop around and explore your options.

2. The 2015 BMW 2 Series 

The 2015 BMW 2 Series will check off many boxes if you miss those older BMW models. It has great driving dynamics and is the perfect size for a two-door convertible. The 2015 2 Series was the first model year to introduce these convertible models, too, so you know you’ll turn heads wherever you go.

3. The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro

Are you looking for a more muscular option? The 2016 Chevy Camaro is an excellent choice if you’re shopping for a used convertible car under $25,000, reports Autotrader. Additionally, whether you opt for the V6 or the turbocharged four-cylinder engine, you will have a lot of fun behind the wheel. These models come equipped with a user-friendly infotainment system that will keep you and your passengers entertained. 

4. The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette 

Of course, the 2011 Chevy Corvette also made the list of best-used convertibles. It’s a classic! If you’re shopping within the $25,000 price range, then you will want to go with the C6 generation. Under the hood, you will discover the standard 430-horsepower V8 engine. Although it’s powerful, it’s a comfortable car to drive on a daily basis.

5. The 2015 Ford Mustang

For the 2015 model year, the Ford Mustang entered the S550 generation, so you’ll want this model at the top of your list. The Mustang convertible truly offers it all. It boasts eye-catching style from the inside out, thrilling performance, and advanced tech features.

Which used convertible car is the best fit for you?

When it comes to picking out a used convertible car, there are some factors you will want to think about:

  1. You’ll want to decide how practical you want it to be. For example, will it be your primary source of transportation or just a car you’ll drive every so often?
  2. Consider if you want to invest in a hardtop or soft-top model. Once you know, test it!
  3. Do your research. You can start your research from the comfort of your home and make your way down to local dealerships when you’re ready to take a test drive.

Remember, the most crucial factor, though. Make sure it’s fun to drive!
