Owning a sportscar is one of the most rewarding experiences for car lovers. But there are two different types of sportscars: convertibles and coupes.

If you’re in the market for a hi-tech, performance-heavy sportscar, we recommend one of our Mazda models, like our Mazda convertibles. With the top down, a convertible can truly enhance your driving experience, and it’s one of the best types of cars for experiencing beautiful summer weather.

Convertibles vs. Coupes

In addition to feeling the wind blow through your hair, owning a convertible allows you to hear every note coming from your car’s engine. They also expand the limits of visibility, as the open roof allows you to see the road ahead clearly.

On the other hand, coupes may provide better handling than convertibles, as they come with a roof. By adding a roof, the car’s body becomes more rigid, allowing drivers to go harder on turns. But for everyday driving, the coupe is confining, and it may even feel a little bit more cramped.

MAZDA Convertibles to Consider

The Mazda MX-5 Miata is the ultimate convertible. Its legendary status as a perfectly balanced sportscar is well known among enthusiasts everywhere. Powered by an available 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the Mazda MX-5 Miata produces 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. Its front midship engine comes with rear-wheel drive, allowing it to power through the toughest road conditions.

However, the best part of the Mazda MX-5 Miata is the fact that it’s a convertible, which makes it as eye-catching as any other sportscar on the road today.

The best way to experience this convertible and other Mazda vehicles is with a comprehensive test drive. Learn every detail of our vehicles and see if one fits your driving needs. We hope to see you soon at O’Brien Mazda of Fort Myers!
