ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

If you're interested in buying a new 4-seat convertible, you'll quickly discover that most new drop-tops can get expensive quickly. Enter the certified pre-owned warranty, which is a manufacturer-backed warranty on recent used cars that provides additional peace of mind and a substantial discount compared to a new model. We think many CPO convertibles are better values than their new counterparts -- and we're proving our point by rounding up seven excellent certified used drop-tops that boast affordable pricing and room for four people.

Audi A5

A brand-new Audi A5 Cabriolet starts at just under $49,000, and drivers who add a lot of options can easily see that price climb to way more than $55,000 and even break the $60,000 barrier. Meanwhile, the average price of a certified pre-owned A5 Cabriolet on Autotrader is just $36,700, which is a sharp discount from new. Despite the price difference, a certified pre-owned A5 still offers all the benefits of the new A5, including the same handsome styling, the same modern equipment and even a manufacturer-backed warranty. In this case, the warranty lasts for up to 6 years or 100,000 miles from the car's original sale date.

BMW 1 Series

The BMW 1 Series is gone, replaced instead by the pricey 2 Series, which starts around $39,000 with shipping in convertible form. But for drivers who don't mind the old model's look -- and its tight back seats -- a certified pre-owned 1 Series is certainly the way to go. We say that because certified pre-owned examples of the 1 Series Cabriolet are available on Autotrader with an average price of less than $31,000 -- a figure that drops well below $30,000 if you're only interested in the fuel-efficient 128i. Sure, you won't have some of the new model's high-tech gadgets, but you'll get a nearly new BMW convertible with a 6-year or 100,000-mile factory warranty.

Chevrolet Camaro

Unlike the other models on our list, the Camaro isn't a luxury car, but it's still a 4-seat convertible, and it still boasts an excellent deal if you buy it with Chevrolet's certified pre-owned warranty. Here's what we mean: While a base-level version of the current Camaro convertible starts around $33,000 with shipping -- a figure that can rise to well over $40,000 with options -- certified pre-owned Camaro V6 models are available on Autotrader for an average price of around $27,000. Want a V8-powered Camaro SS convertible? Expect prices to start around $42,000 for a new one, while certified pre-owned models average just under $33,200 on Autotrader. That makes the certified pre-owned Camaro a great deal -- especially since it includes Chevrolet's 1-year or 12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper CPO warranty, along with 5 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage.

Infiniti G37 Convertible

Now called the Q60, the Infiniti G37 has always been one of our favorite entry-level luxury cars -- whether we're talking about the coupe, the convertible or the sedan. With an all-new model on the way, the aging G37 Convertible is becoming an excellent deal -- especially in certified pre-owned form, where most G37 Convertible models are available for an average price of less than $36,000 on Autotrader. That's a major discount compared to the Q60 Convertible, which starts around $49,500 with shipping. And don't be fooled by the name change: Despite different monikers, the G37 and Q60 offer much of the same equipment, along with the same excellent 330-horsepower 3.7-liter V6.

Lexus IS 250C

While sedan versions of the Lexus IS earned a full redesign last year, the drop-top IS C has retained the car's old body style -- and much of the previous model's technology -- for a pricey $44,000 with shipping before options. If that sounds steep, you might want to consider a certified pre-owned model, as a certified used IS 250C is available for an average price of around $35,000 on Autotrader. Not only will it include virtually all the same benefits as a new IS C, a certified pre-owned model will offer Lexus's excellent 3 year or 100,000-mile warranty -- one of the best certified warranties in the industry.

Volkswagen Eos

Although the Volkswagen Eos's tiny rear seats stretch the definition of "4-seater," it's nice to know they're there in a pinch. It's also nice to know that a certified pre-owned Eos comes with Volkswagen's excellent certified pre-owned warranty, which offers 2 years or 24,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage that begins once the car's original factory warranty expires. The best part? While a brand-new Eos starts at a pricey $37,000 before options, certified pre-owned models aren't anywhere near that much, instead averaging under $25,000 on Autotrader. And the used model doesn't include many drawbacks compared to the current version, as the Eos's design has remained mostly unchanged since its debut in 2007.

Volvo C70

Although the luxurious Volvo C70 is no longer in production, drivers interested in the hardtop convertible can still pick up a certified pre-owned example at a great price. In fact, certified pre-owned C70 models are currently averaging just $27,500 on Autotrader, which is a great deal considering the C70's long list of standard features, its original MSRP of around $42,000 and Volvo's impressive certified pre-owned warranty, which is routinely ranked among the very best in the industry. The C70 also comes standard with four seats, luxury-car ride quality and a potent 227-hp 2.5-liter turbocharged 5-cylinder engine.
