Convertible cars were and continue to be special. The results of a survey made by an insurance company indicate the fact that a fifth of convertible car owners bought them in their fifties. Apparently the reason one of ten gave is the crisis they go through concerning their age. This is why Britain has 911,495 models on the streets.
We all know the weather in the UK is not really perfect for convertibles, but even so, it's the largest consumer of this kind of cars. The most popular are the Peugeot 206 CC, the Renault Megane Dynamique VVT and the Mercedes SLK.
The reason people purchased the convertible is actually very easy. The survey indicates that a third of the owners declared that is their dream car and one of ten really wanted to impress their friends and family and this was the easiest way.
As a conclusion of the survey we can say that middle-age people buy this kind of models to manage easier the life crisis they go through. This is not the perfect reason, but it's very profitable for the carmakers.
