Top down, wind in hair, sun on face, exhaust note on loud — it’s a recipe few can argue against. And with the threat of cold fronts and daylight savings looming in the not-too-distant future, the thought of getting in some last-minute top-down driving has us pining for the best convertibles we’ve tested this year. These convertible cruisers have been the standouts over the past couple months.

Fiat 124 Spider

Fiat-124-Gear-Patrol-Old-Slide-1
The second coming of the 124 Spider has been long awaited. Even when it’s parked next to its classic counterpart, it still holds its own.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet

There’s only one way to enjoy the South of France, and that’s topless.

Lamborghini Aventador Roadster

Lamborghini-Aventador-Roadster-Gear-Patrol-Ambiance
Nothing pairs with the lack of a roof quite like an Italian V12.

Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster

That being said, a German V12 isn’t a bad match, either.

Porsche 718 Boxster

Porsche-718-Boxster-Gear-Patrol-Slide-5
New name, same great song and dance.

Range Rover Evoque Convertible

Modern SUV convertibles are generally hit or miss. The Evoque is most definitely the former.
