What is a Convertible?
Simply put, a Convertible is a passenger car that can be driven either with or without a roof. Typically, the roofs are made of some type of soft textile that can be retracted with the push of a button. Of course, there are hard-top models with retractable metal roofs.
Convertibles typically have a contemporary passenger-car body style, and are usually on the smaller side in order to fit with the ‘sports car’ theme.
