NOT A CLOUD IN THE SKIES, GOT THE SUN IN MY EYES

Torque (Singapore) - - CONTENTS -

Convertibles are con­ducive to feel­ing on top of the world, af­ter they con­vert from “closed” to “open”. With the canopy down, the cabin’s oc­cu­pants perk up. They will look on the bright side of life, made even brighter by sun­light in the day­time or moon­light at night. And they will en­joy the won­der­fully windswept motoring which only a convertible can de­liver. We drove close to the wind in a va­ri­ety of al­fresco cars for this is­sue. They of­fer dif­fer­ent kinds of breezi­ness on wheels – a light breeze (Mazda’s ND MX-5 RF and NC MX-5 RC, pg 42); a gen­tle breeze (Volkswagen’s new and old Beetle Cabri­o­lets, pg 48); a fresh breeze (DS 3 Cabrio and Fiat 500C, pg 52); and a strong breeze (MINI Cooper S Convertible and Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible, pg 34).

Let’s get breezy be­fore the weather gets rainy.
