Convertible

Wisping air is 12 seconds away

One of the more versatile concepts to come out of last year's Geneva Motor Show was the Magna Steyr MILA Coupic. The concept used a unique retractable fastback-style roof to facilitate a three-for-one: convertible, sporty crossover and pick-up car.

The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible 60s Special Edition on the floor at the LA Auto Sho...

Gizmag was on hand when Volkswagen unveiled the convertible variant of its new second-generation Beetle at the LA Auto Show ... second generation of the modern front-engined modern version, that is. The first generation was a relatively successful exercise in retro nostalgia, complete with dash-mounted bud vase, that appealed to a distinctly feminine demographic. This time things are more serious and less “cartoony,” with a wider, longer, lower body shape and a level of design and finish that offer real value and less novelty. It’s only right and proper that the iconic rag-top version should be launched in California.  Read More

Indeed, it has won numerous journalist-bestowed awards in the last two years including Top Gear's 2010 "Car of the Year." Now it's available with a sliding top which combines a three-position convertible roof with a hatchback shape, frugality, and heaps of fun. It is Citroen's DS3 Cabrio, and although we won't see it in the metal until the Mondial de l'Automobile (Paris Motor Show) later this month, it will be in showrooms within six months.  Read More
