Convertibles range in size from two-seat roadsters to larger four-seat luxury models. Most convertibles on the market are luxury-brand vehicles, although there are still several affordable drop tops available.
The cheapest convertible runs about 32 Lacs, while the most expensive luxury models can run well over crores.
Most models use four- and six-cylinder engines, while more expensive luxury-branded convertibles generally use powerful six-cylinder or V8 engines. Four- and six-cylinder models can get good combined mileage in the mid-to-upper-20-mpg range, but most eight-cylinder drop tops turn in less than 10-12 Kmpl.
Convertibles usually offer some kind of fixed or pop-up roll bar to protect passengers in the event of a rollover accident. Side airbags that deploy from the seats are a staple among premium-brand drop tops and are almost always optional on less expensive models. Many of those side airbags extend upward to protect the head in lieu of the side curtains found on solid-roof vehicles. Unfortunately, most convertibles have small rear windows, thus creating large blind spots. Blind-spot warning systems, parking sensors and rearview cameras are features to look for.
Luxuries like rearview cameras, automatic climate control, smartphone interfaces, navigation systems, keyless start systems and Bluetooth capability can often be found in non-luxury convertibles. Look for them as you shop. Special features that really make a difference in convertibles include built-in wind deflectors, heated and cooled seats and even sun-reflective leather upholstery. In four-seat convertibles, look for front seats that automatically return to their previous position and seatbelts that move out of the way for rear occupants but are still easily accessible for the driver.
"Roadster"" identifies a convertible as a two-seater only
The term SUV, or sport-utility vehicle, has become shorthand for many different types of vehicles. Some lean more toward the "sport" side of the name, while others are much more focused on the "utility" aspect of the equation. With that in mind, you shouldn't assume that anything labeled as an SUV is necessarily built for one particular type of activity or another. The earliest SUVs were basically trucks with covered cargo beds. Although there are still some truck-based SUVs such as the Chevrolet Tahoe and Toyota 4Runner, most modern SUVs are designed primarily for carrying people first and cargo second. The move away from the truck-based SUV to something oriented more toward passenger comfort resulted in the creation of what we now know as the crossover vehicle. The term "SUV" and "crossover" are often used interchangeably, but crossovers are generally lighter-duty vehicles that are less capable of towing heavy loads or venturing very far off-road. One of the biggest reasons why SUVs have become so popular is the elevated driving position that gives drivers an unobstructed view of the road ahead. Most SUVs also offer the option of all-wheel drive that helps maintain traction in cold weather. Flexible cargo space is another reason why SUVs are often popular with families. Wide rear hatches and second-row seats that often fold flat also make SUVs capable of carrying large, awkward-sized loads. And the downsides to SUVs? Poor fuel economy is often the biggest drawback. Most SUVs are large, heavy and not very aerodynamic. This makes them less fuel-efficient than a sedan of similar size. An average SUV also rides higher, so getting in and out can sometimes be more difficult for older passengers.
