Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

Saab's 9-3 Convertible offers a smooth drivetrain and good safety ratings, but has a soft convertible top.

The Audi A4 Cabriolet is also a ragtop, and offers similarly conservative styling to the Volvo with an available V-6 engine.

The Volkswagen Eos and BMW 3-Series feature similar hardtop convertible systems, while the 3-Series' twin-turbo insline six-cylinder engine offers thrills and the Eos has been picked as Consumer Reports' class leader.

The Infiniti G37 Convertible offers a hardtop, plus a potent V-6 engine, and fresh, attractive styling.

The Lexus IS-C is another hardtop convertible with appealing style and high-quality interior.
