A brilliant answer to the question of eco-friendly urban transport.
Far, far better than the last one, but still likely to remain a niche purchase.
Brilliant, fearsomely potent, and never less than addictive to drive.
A great examplar for keeping a car's mechanicals simple. The MX-5 provides fun at entirely legal speeds
A cute, fine little convertible. Although the emphasis is on the little: the boot is tiny and the interior packaging is odd.
Far better looking than the old 1 Series Coupe. Driving and owning qualities mark it out as a real BMW.
The simplest and most exciting Toyota in years is also a real pleasure to drive
Spoilt for choice between this and an MX-5? You can't actually go wrong. Choose on looks and engine character
A good-natured daily driver that's rare, looks sporty and offers lots to enjoy. But it's pricey
It’s not sophisticated, but it is enormously good fun. Even as a convertible
Superb design and refinement cloak a nondescript driving experience. Again.
Judged appropriately, the Plus 4 is a charming tonic to the grumpy, cynical modern world
A coupe that majors on comfort and luxury. Unless you go for the C63 AMG, in which case it's NUTS
It’s a seductive car, the new A5 Cabriolet, and while more dynamically accomplished than its predecessor, still more of a grand touring boulevardier rather than a B-road hustler. But what an ownership proposition.
Mercedes nails it. The C-Class cabrio is pleasant to drive but majors on open-top relaxation
If you really, truly care about driving, the Lotus Elise is about as obvious an answer as water being wet and fire being hot
Forgettable engine and transmission in a sporty-looking package. A sheep in wolf’s clothing.
A great 21st century take on the classic pony car
The default four-seat cabrio. Excellent engines and quality, impressive metal roof too.
Looks good, lowers the heart rate and comes with some reasonably cost-effective engines. A winning combination
A great little coupe that looks and feels sharper than ever
Facelifted Audi Roadster features revised engines, tweaked visuals – and very little amusement
