The 4 Best Convertibles Available For Under £300 Per Month< Back to blog
As the UK continues to move out of lockdown restrictions, what better way to celebrate our favourite places opening up again, than with four great deals on cars that, well, open up?
We are of course talking about convertible cars – and with a summer of freedom on the cards, who wants to spend theirs sweating inside a regular car. Looking on as your peers enjoy the one week of sun us Brits tend to be blessed with, inside their brand-new convertible.
Because of their inclusion in a lot of pop culture (we’re looking at you Ferris Bueller), people tend to believe the misconception that convertibles are too expensive. We’re here to show you that’s not the case with four of our favourites, available for less than £300 per month*.

Want the best deal on a brand-new convertible? Moneyshake shows you the best deal on the latest soft-top models, saving you time and money.
1. Mini Convertible
If you’re looking into leasing a convertible, the chances are you care somewhat about how your car looks – and no rival does that better than the Mini Convertible. Aside from its iconic design, few manufacturers offer as many customisable options as the BMW subsidiary.
Now, you wouldn’t necessarily associate Mini with powerful engines or sporty performance, but its latest generation bucks that trend. Three petrol engines are available across the range, including a 231bhp option that manages a 60mph sprint in 6.5 seconds.
Fuel economy is impressive across the range too, with even the lease efficient returning over 40mpg. Opt for the entry-level 1.5-litre petrol and you’ll find a return closer to 50mpg.
You can drive away in a brand-new Mini Convertible for under £300 per month when you lease from Moneyshake. Our innovative technology compares every lease deal to bring you only the very best.
2. Mazda MX-5
One of history’s best loved sports cars, the MX-5 began its ascendance into the limelight over 30 years ago. Now in its fourth generation it has stood the test of time, and does more than enough to feature in our list of the best convertibles available for under £300 per month.
If you plan on spending your summer with the wind rushing through your hair, opt for the top-range 2.0-litre petrol engine and you won’t be disappointed. Its 184bhp and 6.5 second 0-60mph time is plenty to make the most of the UK sun. Even its entry-level 1.5-litre alternative does a nice job with its 134bhp. An impressive fuel return makes the MX-5 even more desirable for those of you wanting a summer to remember.
Are you a fan of the latest Mazda MX-5? Moneyshake gives you the power to find the best car lease deal on this superb roadster.
3. Abarth 595
If you have ever looked at a Fiat 500 and wondered how much cooler it would be if it added a small spoiler and a sporty stripe down the side – then wonder no more. Add a soft-top roof and you have yourself a very affordable, slick-looking convertible in the form of the Abarth 595, that could cost you closer to £200pcm than £300pcm, depending on your choice of trim level.
The sportiness does not stop with the design either. A 1.4-litre petrol engine is available with three different power outputs. A 165bhp engine is sandwiched between the entry-level 145bhp option, and top of the range 180bhp – which gives even some of the most popular hot hatches a run for their money.
For an easy-to-park city car with impressive fuel efficiency and powerful engines, the Abarth 595 is perfect for travelling around the city during those long summer days.
The most affordable convertible on our list, the Abarth 595 is a great option for those that spend most of their time zipping through the city. Simplify your search for the best lease deal with Moneyshake.
4. BMW 2 Series
Another BMW available for lower than you might expect when you choose to lease through Moneyshake. The 2 Series has always offered the same classic, stylish looks of its cousins, and now you can have all of that with the roof down.
A well put together interior that features premium materials and finishes only seek to further enhance your summer experience by making every second in the 2 Series all the more enjoyable. You won’t find yourself short of entertainment either – the M Sport trim includes smartphone integration – so driving in the sun with your roof down and music blaring is easier than ever.
We mention the M Sport trim because it is the trim level available from under £300 per month. Limited choice does not limit your power though. The 218i M Sport Step Auto provides over 130bhp and hits 60mph in under 10 seconds thanks to its 1.4-litre petrol engine and automatic drive system.
Yes, you can drive away in a brand-new BMW 2 Series Convertible for less than £300 per month. At Moneyshake we simplify the car leasing market by bringing the very best deals to one place.
