Three affordable second hand convertibles to buy to escape the heat

January, 2015

There are many factors to consider when purchasing a new car. The ability to reduce heat may not always be one of them, though as the mercury continues to rise it may become appropriate to consider how your prospective car deals with the hot Western Australian sun.

Because we hand select the cars that we sell, we know which cars our customers love and which suit their dynamic lifestyle needs. Here are three affordable small cars that we think are great for escaping the heat:


Fiat 500c Lounge

Let’s get more specific. If you’re looking to reduce heat, and cruise in style, why not choose a convertible? John Hughes has a range of convertibles suitable to most price ranges. The 2014 Fiat 500c Lounge Convertible is a great option. Small and stylishly retro, the car is equipped with Climate Control and Pollen Filter, not to mention the powered soft-top roof. Fantastically, you can retract the rooftop to varying degrees for the perfect relief.


VW Golf

The Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet is another regularly stocked at John Hughes. Winner of 2013’s Car of the Year for Convertible category, the Cabriolet has great fuel economy, is spacious enough for a family and is equipped with Climate Control, Pollen Filter and a Sensor for pollutants, not to mention the powered soft-top roof. With this little car you get all the style and quality of a Golf with all the fun of a convertible lifestyle.



The 2014 Volkswagen EOS Convertible is a little bit pricier to drive away, but is a great option for those seeking an affordable hard top convertible. Though aesthetically understated, the EOS is great value for money, commonly with an electric sunroof as well as a powered foldaway hardtop roof. This is truly the epitome of style, quality and lifestyle at a price point that won’t break the bank!
