1. Fiat 500 Cabrio
Base Price: $19,500

The 500 will be a hot conversational topic wherever it goes this summer, and the Cabrio dials up the fun factor. This is a convertible that won't leave you entirely exposed because the roof rails remain in place when the top is down. The advantage is that the top can be retracted while you are driving, and the action is fast and direct. The Cabrio will look its best on trips to the beach and at early-evening al fresco gatherings.
