The Volkswagen Eos makes a triumphant entry into position three. This capable convertible is based on the Passat so, as is always the case with Volkswagen, feels robust and beautifully engineered.

The BMW 3 Series Cabriolet swerves around the Eos to finish second. This prestigious convertible has sure-footed handling which is complemented by beautifully weighted steering and smooth transmission. The most thrilling engine is the 3.0-litre straight-six which rockets to 62mph in 5.6 seconds and reaches a license loosing 155mph. Motoring.co.uk's database suggests the used 3 Series Cabriolet is also great value for money. A 2007 example could be your taxi to the beach from £23,000.

The Mercedes SLK leap-frogs the BMW 3 Series to be crowned Motoring.co.uk's best used cabriolet. This robustly constructed vehicle is available with a variety of engines, but the one to set your pulse racing is the 5.5-litre AMG V8. This monstrous beast produces 360bhp and propels the SLK to 62mph in a staggering 4.9 seconds. The SLK can also be confidently hustled into corners due to its nimble, responsive, and entertaining chassis. Flicking through Motoring.co.uk's database reveals the used Mercedes SLK is available from £22,000.
