2022 Mini Cooper S Convertible Sidewalk Edition First Test: Sporty and Stylish—and Pricey

When the 2022 Mini Cooper S Convertible Sidewalk Edition arrived at MotorTrend HQ, we wondered if this flashy subcompact drove with charisma to match its extroverted appearance. It certainly looks like a car that belongs on twisting roads thanks to its racing stripes, a checkered-flag roof, and muscular bodywork to set it apart from base Cooper models. It also comes with a standard manual transmission, a perk in a world where three-pedal driving approaches extinction. Indeed, small stick-shift convertibles are a rare breed in today's market, but would the 2022 Mini Cooper S Convertible Sidewalk Edition prove a worthy example of an old archetype?

Mercedes CLE Convertible Spied With Weird Camo On Nurburgring

The coupe and convertible cars are constantly losing their market share, and that’s not a surprise given the continuous rise of the SUVs. Even the premium brands are now reconsidering their strategies in the two-door segment, and it seems that Mercedes-Benz will be among the companies that will reduce the number of coupes and convertibles in their lineups. We consider positive the fact the Germans won’t discontinue them altogether, though.

China’s Latest Tourist Craze: Bright Pink Convertibles

YUNNAN, Southwest China — Hongwu Road used to be just another sleepy street in Dali’s picturesque old town. Then, the sports cars arrived.

The best convertibles for 2021

It's a shame convertibles aren't nearly as popular as they once were because, frankly, they are awesome. Seriously, I haven't owned a car without a fixed roof in a very long time. Right now, I enjoy driving a Mazda Miata, and it even surprises me how much it has to offer in a folding-roof package.

Best Convertibles 2021: A Run Down of the Most Popular Convertibles of the Year. There are very few vehicles that epitomise cool quite like a convertible. Not only are they attractive, but they’re also very practical. Especially if you live in a hot country or somewhere with long summers. Travelling in hot weather can be uncomfortable, particularly for people who suffer from heat exhaustion easily. Global warming means that the world’s only getting hotter, so there’s never been a better time to buy a convertible. Manufacturers clearly know this, because some of this year’s hottest cars have been convertibles.

2021 BMW M440i xDrive Convertible | PH Review

The BMW M3 and, latterly, M4 Convertibles have always been curious cars. For every single generation back to the 1980s, when BMW has consistently espoused the benefits of motorsport breeding for its M car icon, so too has it offered a drop-top version. Adding weight and inevitably dulling responsive always seemed counterintuitive when you consider the M3 mantra - yet the cabs have always existed, and they've proved popular, too.
