Rolling with the roof down – a convertible dream

Now that summer is just around the corner, you’ve stopped using the heater in your car. You’ve either switched to the air-conditioning, or just settled on rolling the windows down and feeling the fresh air as you cruise around. There’s a better way to improve the air flow in your car, though. What if you removed the entire roof?

We don’t mean saw off the top of your van and ride around town like they tried to do on Top Gear …

Instead, get behind the wheel of one of these convertibles for the time of your life on the roads this summer. A novated lease can help you get there.

1) Mazda MX-5

The Mazda MX-5 has long been considered one of the best small cars on the market. The latest model has taken out the prestigious World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year, and Wheels Car of the Year.

People are impressed by more than just the street appeal of this car, although there’s nothing better than zipping around with the top down on a beautiful Australian day! The base model is powered by a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder block and has a six-speed transmission in either automatic or manual. This is a car that everybody will love.

2) Mini Cooper S Convertible

For those after a louder engine note, shorter body and one of the coolest interiors in modern car design, the Mini Cooper S Convertible should be your first choice. As a Mini, you know it’s going to have those characteristic extras such as fabulous wheels, punchy performance and a cabin to suit the exterior.

With the top down, you’ll have the privilege of listening to the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine screaming out of the central twin-pipe exhaust system. It’s a truly addictive sound.

3) Jeep Wrangler

This is the only four-wheel-drive on the list, but that’s because it’s rare that a manufacturer decides to take the roof off a vehicle designed to go off-road. The Jeep Wrangler doesn’t disappoint – in fact, it hasn’t for the past 30 years.

What you get with a Wrangler is a never-say-die attitude, a whole lot of grunt, a comfortable ride, street appeal like you’ve never known before and a car that is capable of driving on virtually any terrain. Oh, and the roof can come off, so you feel like you’re on safari. Perfect for driving through the concrete jungle!

These are three fantastic convertibles, and buying one is not hard. To talk about how a novated lease can help you, talk to Alliance Leasing today.
