Top 10 Hardtop Convertibles in 2007

Soft-top convertibles seem to be disappearing slowly. Even BMW released their new 3-Series convertible in a hardtop for the first time ever. The main reason most auto makers are switching to hardtops is because they offer quieter, safer, and a better handling ride than soft-top convertibles. Yes, a hardtop convertible adds extra weight to a car, but we doubt you’ll be doing any performance driving with your top down. Anyway, check out BusinessWeek’s list of the top hardtops in 2007.
