Summer! You are in the midst of arguably the best season of the year. The sun is out, you’ve got your sunglasses on and you’re ready to go for a drive. There are many cars that will get you from point A to point B during the summer but if you want to be cool, or stay cool, you’ll want to cruise around town in one of these.
First, if you want to feel the wind in your hair and have cash to splash, then you might enjoy driving a 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 convertible. There’s no denying this car has the cool factor. This modern muscle car, which has a reported 662 horsepower, boasts an impressive 0-60mph time of 4 seconds so it won’t be long before you’re feeling the breeze. However, with a price of around £41,000, it isn’t for everyone.
If you still want a convertible but find the Ford Mustang a tad expensive, you can test drive a Vauxhall Astra convertible and see if it’s more for you. You still have the convertible aspect, with a soft top that folds down, and this car comes with four seats, so you can drive your friends around with you. Prices for a new Vauxhall Astra convertible are in the region of £20,000 however so if that is still out of your price range, you can easily find a used one in good condition for a few thousand.
Another car that will allow you to make the most of the warm summer weather is the Jeep Wrangler. You can take the top and side cover off, giving you a convertible feel in a car that is higher off the ground. If you prefer to drive SUVs and trucks, this car could be best for you this summer. New Jeep Wranglers are being sold for between £22,000-£28,000 with both two door and four door varieties available.
If you’re a classic car buff you may want to invest in a Jaguar E-type convertible this summer. The E-type was made between 1961 and 1974 and has been a popular sports car in Britain ever since. You would be looking to get this highly sought-after car for around £30,000, or more, so although it won’t come cheap, you can consider it an investment for the future.
If you do decide to get one of these cool summer cars, you can simply add the car to your existing car insurance plan. Multi car insurance from the UK is a popular choice for those of you with more than one car. If the cost a new car doesn’t fit your bill, so to speak, you can consider getting a model that is a few years old. Used cars can still provide the comfort and style you’re looking for but perhaps at a more affordable price.
Thus, there are many cars that will keep you cool, in more ways than one, this summer. All you have to do is pick the one that’s right for you and your lifestyle. You may want to invest in a new pair of sunglasses as well!
