8 Great Used Convertibles Under $10,000 for 2019

Enjoying the sun on your face and the wind in your hair from behind the wheel doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

Here are eight great used convertibles you can get for under $10,000 in 2019.

2007-2015 Volkswagen Eos

2007-2015 Volkswagen Eos

Similar to the Mk5 Volkswagen Golf, the Eos was a compact convertible with a rather interesting roof design. It was a retractable hardtop with a 5-piece roof that included an independently sliding glass sunroof. That means you could either have the roof closed, have just the sunroof open, or have the whole top down. Like many Volkswagens of this era, the Eos has a clean interior design that’s aging nicely. Find a Volkswagen Eos for sale

The R230 generation of the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is currently the one to get if you’re shopping in the sub-$10,000 range. It does what the SL models have always done: combine classy and sporty styling in a sporty and fun luxury roadster. It offers real luxury car comfort with supportive, road trip worthy seats along with a comfortable suspension. If you’re looking for a luxurious retractable hardtop roadster that will make your friends jealous, this SL-Class is hard to beat. Find a Mercedes-Benz SL-Class for sale

2003-2008 BMW Z4

2003-2008 BMW Z4

Speaking of luxurious and sporty roadsters, the BMW Z4 is a fun little 2-seater that has gotten pretty affordable. It sacrificed a more comfortable ride for outstanding driving dynamics and excellent cornering abilities. It even has pretty generous cargo space for a small roadster. The SL you just read about is better for eating up miles on the highway, but the Z4 is better for weekend canyon carving. Find a BMW Z4 for sale

2006-2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata

2006-2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata

For a modern roadster at an affordable price, the NC Mazda MX-5 Miata has depreciated below $10,000 levels. It might not have all of the charm of the earlier 1990s Miatas, but it still has the basics of what makes every Miata great like a low weight, a standard convertible top and pure driving fun. The Miata is known for its tremendous fun for your dollar factor and the NC model is no exception. Find a Mazda MX-5 Miata for sale

2005-2014 Ford Mustang

2005-2014 Ford Mustang

The S-197 generation of the iconic Ford Mustang is currently in a sweet spot on the used market. Most Mustang convertibles you find from this generation under the $10,000 mark will likely be from before the 2011 face-lift, but more modern, higher-mile examples at this price point are out there as well. Most of them will be V6-powered, but that still makes for a pretty cool convertible at a very affordable price. Find a Ford Mustang for sale

2012-2019 FIAT 500c

2012-2019 FIAT 500c

The FIAT 500 is awfully small, but it’s also awfully cute. This tiny hatchback is excellent for city driving with its nimble handling and its very small footprint making parking a breeze. Since the FIAT 500c is already the most affordable convertible on the new market, they’ve gotten even more affordable on the used market and can be found fairly easily with a 4-digit price tag. Its convertible mechanism is quite simple just being a soft top that rolls all the way back like a huge sunroof, but that just adds to the car’s already immense charm. Find a Fiat 500 for sale

2012-2019 FIAT 500c

2006-2013 Volvo C70

If you’re shopping on the quirkier side of used convertibles, you might like the Volvo C70. Unlike many of the convertibles on this list, the C70 actually has a fairly roomy back seat and can comfortably seat four adults. The controls and technology are a bit, shall we say, unconventional? But like with any other car, once you get used to the controls, using them becomes second nature. This Volvo doesn’t have the driving dynamics of some of its German rivals, but it does have practicality and value. Find a Volvo C70 for sale

2004-2008 Toyota Camry Solara

2004-2008 Toyota Camry Solara

For the fun of a convertible combined with the reliability and practicality of a Toyota Camry, a used Camry Solara is a great option. The second and final generation of the Solara has become a very affordable way to stand out with its swoopy styling that makes it look more expensive than it is. Other perks include a very smooth ride and a generous host of standard features. When you think of a used Camry, you probably don’t think of a fun car, but the Camry Solara is here to change that. Find a Toyota Camry Solara for sale
