The Best-Looking Convertibles You Can Buy for 2020

From affordable to outlandish, these are the most stylish droptops in America.

You don't have to live in Southern California to enjoy the simple pleasures of a convertible car, though it certainly helps. But no matter where you live, a little wind in the hair and sun or moonlight on the face can make most any trip—from a quick run to the grocery store to a long weekend summer getaway—more fun. There are modern soft tops and retractable hard tops available in a variety of shades, and while the most convertibles seat only two passengers, there are a number that can accommodate four (plus maybe one more if you really push it). Of the convertibles available for the U.S. market, Mercedes-Benz easily offers up the most models, including C-, E-, and S-class cabriolets all the way up to the wicked fast AMG GT R roadster.

For this list, we picked a single droptop from each marque that currently offers at least one, with the criteria for inclusion being both beautiful and a pleasure to drive. Our alphabetically arranged roster runs all across the price spectrum, too, from all-time heroes like the Mazda MX-5 Miata to the mega-luxurious Rolls-Royce Dawn. If we were forced to pick just one? We'll have to get back to you on that…

2020 Bentley Continental GT Convertible | Price: $221,075

The classy convertible version of the Bentley Continental GT simply oozes opulence, top up or down. When you want to drop the Conti's plush soft top, it can stow in 19 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph. The convertible is available with either engine option available for the Continental GT, the marque's signature 6.0-liter W-12 that produces 626 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque or a potent twin-turbo V-8 that delivers 542 horses and 568 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The V-12 will rocket from zero to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds up to a top speed of 207 mph, while the V-8 gets to benchmark speed in 3.9 seconds and with a top speed of 198 mph. Cinch down your hat or toupee accordingly.

2020 BMW M8 Convertible | Price: $157,495

While the all-new BMW Z4 is an awesome, purpose-built convertible, our first choice from BMW is the also-all-new 2020 M8 convertible. The stealthy M8 sports a fabric soft top that can be raised or lowered in 15 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph. Under the hood it packs a 4.4-liter turbocharged V-8 making 617 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, an engine that launches the M8 Convertible to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, or just 0.2 ticks slower than the coupe. While it's theoretically designed to fit two additional passengers in the back seats, they probably won't be your friends for long if they're shoehorned back there for more than a few miles.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Convertible | Price: $67,495

The brilliant new 2020 C8 Corvette looks great and was designed to also be a hardtop convertible from the outset of development. It's also an awesome deal for the money compared to, say, a McLaren 720S Spider (see below). The Corvette convertible's top is powered by six electric motors, retracts in 16 seconds, and rests above the mid-mounted engine when stowed. Under that top is a 6.2-liter V-8 that delivers 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque when equipped with the Performance exhaust, or 490 and 465 without. The C8 Corvette's small-block engine is mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Oh, and it has plenty of room for golf clubs in the rear and additional space for a couple bricks of sparkling water—or your favorite beverage—up front. What's not to love?

2020 Ferrari F8 Spider | Price: $300,000 (est)

The open-top Ferrari F8 Spider, the successor to the 488 Spider, packs a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V-8 with a massive 710 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque. Its top is a retractable metal unit that splits niftily into two pieces as it folds atop the engine in 14 seconds. And of course, the roof can be opened or closed at speeds up to 28 mph. This banshee will part traffic, part your hair, and turn heads wherever you go. Bellissima!

2020 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible | Price: $45,850

If you're looking for more of a classic American approach to your convertible, it's hard to beat a topless Ford Mustang GT. Its cloth roof can be lowered in roughly 10 seconds after you unlock the center latch and touch a button, and it folds behind the rear seats. Unlike most other modern convertibles, you won't be able to put it down at speed, and it takes up a lot of room in the trunk, but there's just enough space in the snug back seats for your groceries. The GT Premium pony packs a 5.0-liter V-8 with 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque, mated to your choice of a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission.

2020 Jaguar F-Type SVR Convertible | Price: $127,725

The top of the stunning, two-seat F-Type SVR droptop lowers in a scant 12 seconds while traveling at speeds of up to 30 mph. It's powered by an SVR-massaged, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 that packs 575 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission with all-wheel drive (sadly, a manual transmission option is no longer available). On the plus side, the F-Type SVR Convertible can hit the 60-mph mark in 3.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 195 mph.

2020 Lamborghini Huracán Evo Spyder | Price: $287,400

This wild wedge of Lambo Spyder pie—available in paint colors reminiscent of a bag of Skittles—can easily propel you to rock star status wherever you go. To open the Huracán's Transformer-like cloth roof takes 17 seconds and can be accomplished at speeds of up to 31 mph. Like the coupe, the Huracán Evo Spyder is powered by a 5.2-liter V-10 with 630 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. Its zero-to-62-mph time is 3.1 seconds (the coupe will get you there in 2.9) to go with a top speed in excess of 201 mph. This monster is made for two, but you'll have to fight over its lone cupholder hidden discreetly above the glovebox. One is better than none, and if that's the price to pay for superstardom—we'll take it.

2020 Mazda Miata | Price: $28,000

For more than 30 years running, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has consistently been one of our favorite cars, and you'll find one in many of our garages as personal funsters. It's not a secret why—the Miata is a joy to drive, affordable, and attractive. The latest version of the ND model's 2.0-liter inline-four engine delivers 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque, mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The top is a manual too, but easily goes down as fast as you can push it and snaps into place with a simple click behind the seats. You can spend more money on the Club, Grand Touring, and the targa-style, hardtop RF trims, but there's no denying the value in the $28,000 Sport model, either.

2020 McLaren 720S Spider | Price: $315,000

The ridiculously powerful and stunning-to-behold McLaren 720S Spider is right at the top of our droptop wish list, thanks in part to its trick carbon-fiber roof that can be dropped in just 11 seconds at speeds up to 31 mph. The Spider is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo mid-engine V-8 that lays down 710 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque, a delicious-sounding engine that's mated to a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. The 720S Spider can sprint from zero to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 212 mph with the top up or 202 mph with it down. It's an absolutely beautiful and brilliant choice if you decide to choose one over, say, purchasing a home or condo. Although that's not likely a decision many owners will have to make, it's tempting for plebes like us.

2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster | Price: $190,745

The Mercedes AMG GT R roadster is the convertible version of the marque's most powerful GT coupe variant. Limited to 750 units, the GT R roadster is powered by AMG's handcrafted, twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 that delivers 577 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. It can rock to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds (the same as the hardtop GT R) on to a top speed of 197 mph. Like the GT and GT C convertibles, the roof is made from three layers of cloth and features a lightweight frame made of aluminum, steel, and magnesium. The limited-run convertible also includes Mercedes' Airscarf system that blows warm air on your neck to fight off the chill. All that exclusivity comes with an exclusive price tag that can easily rise into the low $200,000 range when fully loaded.

2020 Porsche 718 Boxster S | Price: $72,650

The regular Boxster is a treat, but the Boxster S is a mid-engine marvel powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer-four that cranks out 350 horsepower and 309 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual comes standard, with Porsche's PDK dual-clutch automatic available as an option. That powertrain can propel the two-seater roadster to 60 mph 4.4 seconds and to a top speed of 177 mph. You can order a Boxster's sheetmetal in any custom color you want for a price, and it also offers four top colors that include muted shades of blue, black, brown, or red. We'll take one in silver with a red interior and soft top, please.

2020 Rolls-Royce Dawn | Price: $373,695

The Rolls-Royce Dawn is as "pretty as a mid-summer's morn" and features an exquisitely crafted cloth top that retracts in 22 seconds at the press of a button. The four-place Dawn, which can actually fit that number of regular-size humans quite comfortably, is powered by a turbo 6.6-liter V-12 that serves up 563 horsepower and 575 lb-ft of torque, mated to a buttery smooth eight-speed automatic transmission. If you can afford the price tag, why not option the Dawn to the max with Black Badge trim and an Aero Cowling to boot? After all, when you're playing in this price range, the wide-open sky's the limit.

Mazda MX-5 Miata

Calling the 2021 Mazda MX-5 Miata an automotive icon is no overstatement, as its heritage stretches back more than 30 years and its cheerful driving demeanor has always been its strongest character attribute. The Miata's four-cylinder engine delivers just enough power to make it feel spunky and its chassis is delightfully balanced—perfect for zipping through curvy sections of road. Both a soft-top convertible model and a power-folding hard-top called the RF are offered, so with either one buyers are treated to fun in the sun. The Miata's cabin is tight for two and cargo space is limited, but it wasn't made for road trips; it's designed for spirited sunny-drenched drives and track days. The fact that it remains one of the cheapest ways to get into a convertible sports car only adds to its appeal.

Porsche 718 Boxster

Few vehicles fulfill their intended mission as well as the 2021 Porsche 718 Boxster does, and that's why it's one of our 2021 10Best award winners. Same goes for its coupe brother, the 718 Cayman. This car's mid-engine design and sport-tuned chassis help it to deliver perfectly balanced driving dynamics, and its lineup of horizontally opposed four- and six-cylinder engines provide plenty of power to accompany this roadster's sharp handling. Buyers can choose between a six-speed manual transmission and a quick-shifting seven-speed automatic for this rear-driver. Drop the top, let the wind rush through your hair, and enjoy all the performance and driving satisfaction that Porsche can deliver for thousands of dollars less than a 911.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

BMW 2-Series

The 2021 BMW 2-series delivers everything we love about BMW's sporty driving dynamics in a handsome, well-priced package. Offered in both hardtop coupe and softtop convertible body styles, the 2-series is a compact sports car with plenty of compelling traits. The 230i model is powered by a 248-hp turbocharged four-cylinder, but upgrading to the M240i swaps in a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that makes a stout 335 horsepower. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but BMW offers its xDrive all-wheel drive system as an option on both models. If you're looking for more practicality, you might find that one of this car's four-door rivals—such as the Audi A3, the Mercedes-Benz A-class, or even BMW's own 2-series Gran Coupe—fits the bill, but the 2-series coupe and convertible will be the choice of those who value driving verve over day-to-day usefulness.

BMW Z4

There's nothing better than putting the top down on a nice day and finding an entertaining road to enjoy, and the 2021 BMW Z4 is a great choice for such an activity. Buyers can choose between a turbocharged four-cylinder or a twin-turbo inline-six—the latter of which blasted the Z4 to 60 mph in just 3.8-seconds at our test track. Rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive isn't offered but, sadly, neither is a manual transmission; all Z4s come with an eight-speed automatic. Dynamically speaking, the Porsche Boxster is still our preferred ragtop sports car but the Z4 offers plenty of driving enjoyment with a slightly smoother ride for day-to-day use. The cabin is snug but comfortable for two adults and has plenty of standard creature comforts and connectivity features. If you'd prefer a fixed-roof coupe, check out the mechanically similar Toyota Supra instead. Toyota collaborated with BMW on it, and the two cars share their powertrains and suspensions.

Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang family has a legendary history and is populated by models with diverse personalities. This year, that history is recalled by the revival of the Mach 1 moniker, first seen on the 1969 'Stang. The 2021 Mustang will still come as a coupe or a convertible, and its stable of high-performance offerings will be as full as ever. Whether it’s the turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost or the V-8-powered GT, every version of the original pony car can be armed with track weaponry to challenge its Chevy Camaro or Dodge Challenger counterparts. The Ford's beautiful bodywork, vast personalization options, and practical interior also make it desirable to folks who care less about lap times and more about sporty everyday transportation. And that's why the Mustang continues to be an icon: it offers something for everyone.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Chevy Camaro

There's nothing quite like hearing the thrilling timbre of a throbbing exhaust note or feeling the gratifying feedback from a superbly tuned steering system while flying down a twisty road. Few affordable cars offer both these satisfying sensations, but the Chevy Camaro is one of them. It's not focused solely on being loud and going fast, however—even though it does both of those tasks very well. Chevy's two-door pony car comes as a coupe or convertible, and it offers copious features and countless personalization options. While the 650-hp Camaro ZL1 is the most raucous version—and reviewed separately—every model from the base four-cylinder to the V-6 to the V-8 can be enhanced for track duty with the transformational 1LE package. Sure, the interior can feel claustrophobic and has several other quirks, but the 2021 Chevy Camaro is primarily geared towards those who love to drive. Like us.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Chevy Camaro ZL1

With a fire-breathing 650-hp supercharged V-8 and ferocious track capabilities, the 2021 Chevy Camaro ZL1 is the king of monster muscle cars. Sure, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 have horsepower ratings that start with seven, but the bow-tie beast delivers similar thrills for fewer green bills. In fact, if the mid-engine Corvette didn't exist, the ZL1 could perhaps be called the world's greatest performance value. Regardless, the Camaro perfects the front-engine, rear-drive formula inherent to muscle cars. While both the coupe and convertible have a remarkable chassis that's more clairvoyant than Miss Cleo, unleashing the ultimate Camaro requires the transformative 1LE track package, but beware that it makes the suspension very stiff. If you can overlook the Chevy's flawed interior, the 2021 Camaro ZL1 can be more exciting than a roller coaster, and it'll regularly reward thrill-seekers and track rats alike.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Some entry-luxury cars are too sporty and others are too soft, but the 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-class falls in the sweet spot. In its standard C300 form, it combines a quiet and comfortable ride with just the right amount of handling acuity—and if you want more power and performance, Mercedes offers the AMG C43 and C63 models, which we review separately. The C300 is available in sedan, coupe, and convertible models. Although the current generation is nearing the end of its life cycle, it still has plenty of modern technology, and its interior and exterior designs have aged well. A redesigned C-class is expected to arrive within the next year or so.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Mercedes-AMG C43

With a 385-hp twin-turbo V-6 under its hood, the 2021 Mercedes-AMG C43 one-ups its Benz-branded C300 counterpart and borrows styling and chassis components from the even racier AMG C63 models. The C43 is offered as a four-door sedan and as a two-door coupe or convertible, the last of which allows open-air enjoyment of the blown V-6's dulcet exhaust tones. All models wear stylish exterior styling and provide a cozy cabin with all the amenities expected of a Mercedes, although two-door models are less practical and offer less space for rear-seat passengers. While its performance isn't as impressive as the more powerful C63, the well-balanced C43's price tag is far more accessible and it retains the fun-to-drive nature and upscale environs of the other C-class models.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Mercedes-AMG C63

The number of high-performance SUVs is growing every year, but if you’re on the market for a compact car that can blow away almost everything else on the road look no further than the 2021 Mercedes-AMG C63. It’s based on the Mercedes-Benz C-class, but has a twin-turbocharged V-8 engine making 469 horsepower in the C63 and 503 hp in the C63 S. The C63 also has a sportier suspension tune (you’ll notice a harsher ride) and some exterior differences compared to the regular C-class that add some aggression to its appearance. It’s available as a sedan, a coupe, or a convertible, and it goes like it's got a Saturn V booster rocket strapped to its roof. Plus, it has a legitimately luxurious interior and plenty of up-to-the-minute technology, so you’re not trading anything away in return for the performance.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Mercedes-Benz E-Class

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-class epitomizes sophistication with its bleeding technology, classy appearance, and extravagant cabin. Available as a four-door sedan or two-door coupe and cabriolet, the Mercedes can be made to match all manner of upper-class lifestyles. It also offers a set of distinct powertrains that range from an entry-level four-cylinder to a plug-in hybrid to a zesty turbocharged six-cylinder that makes 362 horsepower. The 2021 E-class family chauffeurs passengers in quiet comfort thanks to a serene interior and a pillowy ride. The experience is not unlike a smaller and more affordable version of the ultra-luxurious S-class.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Mercedes-AMG E-Class

When the elegant Mercedes-Benz E-class doesn't offer enough excitement, the 2021 AMG-tuned E53 fills the void with increased performance and edgier styling. A unique grille and exclusive exterior details help separate its sedan, cabriolet, and coupe body styles from their more pedestrian counterparts. A 429-hp turbocharged six-cylinder powertrain and standard all-wheel drive deliver all-weather traction and zealous acceleration. Of course, the E53 family also maintains Mercedes' luxury pedigree with an eye-catching cabin that boasts cutting-edge technology and upscale materials. In a class brimming with talented competitors, the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E53 ranks among the most remarkable.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Audi A5

In the world of Audi, removing two doors from the A4 sedan increases the number to 5—as in, the A5 coupe and cabriolet. The two-door's styling is more aggressive and more rakish than the four-door A4's, and the cabriolet's fabric top opens the cabin for a taste of that classic convertible freedom. A punchy turbocharged four-cylinder provides plenty of pep and the chassis is dialed in for solid cornering grip. It might not be as racy as the V-6–powered S5 model or the BMW 440i, but there's still a lot of like about the A5, and it'll serve buyers well as a stylish and capable ride.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Porsche 911

From its rear-mounted flat-six engine to its otherworldly handling, the 2021 Porsche 911 has preserved the essential elements that made it an icon. Its familiar circular headlights, Coke bottle shape, and sloping rump make it virtually impossible to mistake a 911 for any other sports car. Climb into its perfectly positioned driver's seat, fire up its powerful and unique-sounding engine, and engage either of its terrific transmissions; Porsche's legendary 2+2-seater will then proceed to overload you with feedback from its telepathic steering and its peerless performance attributes. It's offered as a coupe or convertible and with rear- or all-wheel drive. The company's extensive list of options allows it to be personalized for all tastes. The only knock against the 2021 Porsche 911 is that it's too expensive for most enthusiasts to own.

Is The C8 Corvette Convertible Worth $7,500 Extra? First Drive \u0026 Impressions!

Mazda MX-5 Miata

Since its introduction in 1989, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has been beloved by drivers all over the world, and for 2020 this automotive icon continues to be the focused sports car we love. Its chassis is playful, its engine is eager to rev, and its standard manual transmission is a joy to use. Perhaps what's most enjoyable about the 2020 Miata is how analog it seems in the age of computer-controlled cars and SUVs. While it isn't a practical choice, it represents the best and most affordable four-wheeled thrill ride this side of a go-kart.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Porsche 718 Boxster

Not everyone will understand the magnificence of the 2020 718 Boxster, especially compared with click-bait rivals such as the all-new 2020 Chevy Corvette. Still, those who have experienced the convertible Porsche's perfectly balanced chassis and serene steering will see the light and understand why it made our 10Best list again. Despite their rough-sounding engines, the Boxster's trio of turbocharged flat-fours will otherwise charm with speedy acceleration and a pair of terrific transmissions. This soft-top sports car isn't intended to be practical. No. The Boxster is meant to put its driver on a pedestal and redefine the sports car genre.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Mercedes-Benz E-Class

To the extent that the word "discount" can be used to describe any car costing more than $55,000, the 2020 E-class is a discount version of the Mercedes-Benz S-class—and that's a good thing. It delivers the same level of polish and panache as Benz's flagship, with exceptional interior materials, a quiet cockpit, and a composed ride. Yes. The E-class is one of our favorite convertibles. Its twin-turbo V-6 doles out smooth, assertive thrust that's routed through a nine-speed automatic transmission that deftly changes gears. A full complement of tech features is on offer, including air springs, a surround-view camera system, a self-parking system, and lane-keeping assist.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Mercedes-AMG E-Class

The 2020 E53 cabriolet is a successful exercise in multiple personalities. Not only is its powertrain smooth and efficient, but its turbocharged engine sends up to 429 horsepower through an equally competent nine-speed automatic transmission. Some might find the silky inline-six too tame to wear the AMG nameplate, but we’re sold. Behind the engine sits a luxurious cabin anointed with premium materials and myriad options, such as massaging seats and semi-autonomous driving ability. All of this rides on a standard air suspension that adjusts for supreme comfort or firm handling depending on the driving situation. Few cars on the market can impress in as many ways as the E53—if you have the means, we highly recommend picking one up.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

BMW Z4

Completely redesigned just last year, the 2020 Z4 is back after a four-year hiatus, and it's better than ever. The rear-wheel-drive two-seat roadster still falls short of the sublime Porsche Boxster for all-out speed and driving enjoyment, but it's a close second, offering extremely strong performance in a refined package that's enjoyable to drive every day. Its base price is also about $10,000 less than the Boxster's. This time around, the Z4 is offered only as a convertible—there is no longer a coupe version—and it's BMW's least expensive two-seater. This latest generation has also shed its heavy and complex retractable hard top for a more traditional folding soft top, but its interior seals tightly and remains quiet on the highway.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

BMW 2-Series

For BMW buyers seeking the brand's traditional driving involvement, the 2020 2-series convertible provides that in spades, even if its stablemates have moved slightly away from that goal. It has two turbocharged engines—one four-cylinder, one six-cylinder—that can both be coupled to a six-speed manual transmission; an eight-speed automatic is also available. While its rivals may be more stylish, more luxurious, or more technologically advanced, the 2-series speaks directly to the auto enthusiasts in the market with more engaging driving dynamics.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Gateway models sometime fall well short of their more expensive counterparts in a luxury automaker's lineup, but that isn't the case with the 2020 C-class. This relatively affordable Benz bears pleasing similarities to the storied S-class, and it delivers this goodness at a reasonable price. Its cabin is chic and opulent, and its handling is crisp and engaging. Sedan, coupe, and convertible body styles are offered. The C300 is no slouch in the fun department, but those seeking a little extra kick will want to investigate the AMG variants, which step things up significantly when it comes to performance. We review those models, the C43 and C63, separately.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Mercedes-AMG C43

As a mid-way point between the sedan Benz-branded C300 and the raucous AMG-branded C63, the 2020 C43 hits the sweet spot, nicely blending civility and athleticism. The convertible is powered by a twin-turbo V-6 engine, which makes 385 horsepower and provides plentiful power for all but the most discerning car enthusiast. Inside, the cabin is richly equipped and does its best impression of the larger E- and S-class sedans, but its smaller scale means less passenger and cargo space.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Audi A5

The 2020 A5 cabriolet offers a roomy cabin with a decent-size trunk to help auto enthusiasts justify the purchase to themselves and disapproving spouses. It comes with a gutsy turbocharged four-cylinder engine, all-wheel drive, and a host of tech features that will keep futurists happy. The A5's athletic chassis makes it a playful partner on a twisty road but it can still bring home the bacon—literally—with plenty of cargo space and a rear seat that can actually accommodate adult riders.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Ford Mustang

Arguably one of the most recognizable cars of all time, the 2020 Mustang continues to deliver eye-catching style and driving excitement. Its ability to be personalized and performance-enhanced also have endeared Ford's pony car to the public for more than 55 years. While the standard turbocharged four-cylinder might sound like a blasphemous choice for a muscle car, the EcoBoost model is legitimately enjoyable and affordable. The Mustang GT continues to carry the V-8 torch against crosstown rivals from Chevy and Dodge, but it bests them with a better combination of athleticism and livability. Sure, some of the Stang's interior materials are subpar and its back seat is tight, but this legendary muscle car has evolved and consistently lived up to that title.

Review, Pricing, and Specs

Chevrolet Camaro

Not every Chevy Camaro packs a muscular V-8 and a manual transmission, which makes it accessible and desirable to most driving enthusiasts. The 2020 Camaro has unique styling that's ripe for customization. While its cabin feels cramped, the pony car is endlessly enjoyable to drive. A dutiful four-cylinder and spunky V-6 are the most affordable engines, but Chevy's brilliant 6.2-liter V-8 sounds great and goes like stink. An incredible performance package—called 1LE—is available on all coupes and transforms them into versatile track machines. Still, the 2020 Camaro continues the nameplate's tradition of offering something for everyone.

Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

The 2020 Camaro ZL1 is an even more muscled-up version of the already muscular V-8 Camaro. The ZL1 has a 650-hp supercharged V-8 behind its aggressive-looking front end, and it offers drivers their choice of an engaging manual transmission or a lightning-quick automatic. While its claustrophobic cabin has a tiny back seat and poor rear visibility, every model features a fully stocked touchscreen infotainment system and desirable options. Still, the ZL1 specifically caters to folks who like cars that are loud and fast.

Porsche 911

The 2020 911 Cabriolet boasts a terrific twin-turbo six-cylinder engine that comes in two potencies and pairs with an excellent automatic or manual transmission. Both rear- or all-wheel drive are available, and while the latter setup is quicker and more capable in inclement weather conditions, every model transitions from fiercely athletic to astoundingly graceful at a moment's notice. Those traits and the 2020 911's surprisingly practical qualities ensure that its legendary status is alive and well.

BMW 8-Series

BMW may no longer represent the pinnacle of driver engagement, but its 2020 8-series shows it can build a top-notch grand tourer. The big two-door convertible rides with a smoothness and quietness that befits its prodigious price tag. A pair of refined and responsive powertrains help expedite its passengers to their destination, and its well-sorted chassis provides enough agility to enthrall the driver. The interior is an expertly crafted space that can be filled with the finest features and materials. The 8-series won't stun onlookers with its styling, but its presence undoubtedly commands respect.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class

The 2020 S-class is a shining example of what luxury should be, largely due to its sumptuous looks and impressive performance. The lavish convertible is chock full with the latest technology and the finest of materials. The S-class has it all: an interior that could please a sultan, performance to please a hot shoe, and a road presence that is unmistakably majestic. It may be expensive, but if you're shopping in this segment, you'll be happy to know that you're getting every last bit of your money's worth.
