Suns out roofs down: As temperatures hot up so does the appetite for owning a convertible

 

21st June 2022, London - In a week that brought wall to wall sunshine, millions of motorists took to the Auto Trader marketplace looking for a soft top.  

Over the past seven days there were more searches for convertibles on Auto Trader, the UK’s largest automotive marketplace, than any other body type. In fact, there were over 2.4 million advert views for convertibles over the course of the week, which is a 5% increase on the previous week (w/c 6th June 2022). 

The top 10 list of most in-demand soft-tops is packed with classic motors, from powerful premium roadsters, to nippy two seaters, and fun run-arounds. However, there’s one convertible that took the nation by storm last week – the iconic Porsche 911 was the most viewed convertible car on Auto Trader, ranking in an impressive 115, 224 views alone. 

 

Here are the Top 10 most viewed convertibles on Auto Trader in the past week:

Erin Baker, Editorial Director at Auto Trader, commented: “It’s no surprise that as the weather teases us with that first proper kiss of summer, many motorists are starting to look for a new motor to help them make the most of the sunshine. Whether that’s a special occasion convertible, a city-run-around or even the main family transport – there’s plenty of options out there to help get that much needed vitamin D or, on a normal day in the UK, that intense grey cloud fix.”
