Sunny Florida: 6 Hottest Convertible Car Rentals in Orlando
When we think about where to spend the upcoming summer vacation in the United States, most of us will choose sunny Florida. Its mild climate, warm weather, and clean coastal beaches create ideal conditions for a heavenly holiday. In addition, this state is full of other attractions scattered throughout the peninsula, which makes a rental car the best means of transportation in Florida.
However, which car to choose? Most experienced tourists agree that there’s no better car for a beach holiday than a convertible. Speed, wind in the face and a feeling of complete freedom - an open-top vehicle will give you a lot of exciting emotions. For quick search of a good car in Florida use Value car rental in Orlando Airport, providing a large selection of convertible rental cars at an affordable price.
Now, the third generation of this model is available for car rental. It’s equipped with a hard folding roof. The main difference of the current car from its predecessors is the Magic Control Sky function, which allows you to change the degree of transparency of the convertible top: at the touch of a button you can make the roof completely dark or completely transparent.
In order to make a ride with the top down more comfortable for the driver and passengers, Mercedes invented the Airguide wind deflecting system. It’s presented with a few transparent screens that change the direction of oncoming airflow. All versions of the Mercedes SLK are rear-wheel drive. Speaking of engine volume, 1.8, 3.5 or 5.5-liter gasoline engines, including the charged AMG version are at driver’s disposal.

This is one of the youngest convertibles on the market. The car is offered with a single 2.5-liter engine producing 208 hps. Lexus IS Cabrio is unlikely to conquer a driver with its dynamic characteristics: the car is intended rather for measured driving without striving to break all records. It’s not for nothing that the IS abbreviation in the car’s name means Intelligent Sport.
13 electric motors and 33 sensors are involved in the folding of the hard top - the whole procedure takes about 20 seconds. Lexus engineers emphasize that the roof was tested in conditions of arctic ice, sandstorms and tropical storms, so that it’s not necessary to afraid of any vagaries of weather while sitting behind the wheel of Lexus IS Cabrio.
Mini Cooper Cabrio
Mini Cooper is a car that cannot be confused with any other vehicle. Its corporate style with angular lines of the body and round headlights for many years attracted the fans of retro cars.
Unlike many automakers, Mini didn’t give up the traditional soft roof in favor of a more practical and reliable hard metal top. The current Mini cabriolet is equipped with a 1.6-liter gasoline engine producing 120 hp. Also, there is a charged version Cooper Cabrio S with 175 hps onboard.

Infiniti G is a compact prestigious car, which is the base for Infiniti G Cabrio. However, in addition to the folding top, this convertible has several major differences compared with its ‘brother’ - this is the new suspension and steering settings. Plus, the algorithm of the audio system varies depending on the position of the roof of the car, so you can ride with the wind and listen to your favorite music at the same time.
The engine of Infiniti G Cabrio is quite impressive - 3.7-liter power unit with 333 hps. By the way, the car features a special Anti-Scratch Paint coating. As reported by the developers, it saves the car from small chips and scratches, maintaining the perfect car body shine for a long time.

Convertible in the TT family appeared long ago. Since then, this modification has already managed to win the title of a classic car. The exterior of the car turned out to be so successful that in the last process of face-lifting, the engineers decided not to change it, limiting themselves to a slight ‘retouching’ of the lower part of the car radiator grille and head optics.
The choice of complete sets for the Audi TT Roadster is very large: a 1.8- or 2.0-liter engine, front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. For those who like speed, there is also a charged RS version, which boasts a more powerful 2.5-liter engine and a lowered sporty style suspension.

Engineers of the Bavarian automaker are proud of the fact that they managed to combine the comfort of the usual 6-Series with the free spirit of a convertible car. It may seem to someone that this car is too heavy for the cabriolet: a wide squat silhouette with a low roof and a long hood is considered to be the standard of beauty not for everyone.
However, the fact that the appearance of a BMW convertible is charming and luxurious is absolutely correct! By the way, on the road, the car seems to be losing all its heaviness and, thanks to powerful engines, will be an excellent competitor to its more elegant counterparts. The dynamic driving control system, which is installed on all cars as standard equipment, will help you feel comfortable in any situation on the road.
