A wide variety of cars is available with a retractable hardtop convertible, ranging from a sub-$30,000 Mazda MX-5 Miata to a $192,000 Ferrari California.
For 2010 and 2011 there are newcomers to this list, including a drop-top version of the Lexus IS and Infiniti G. These come with hardtop convertibles as standard equipment, which isn’t always the case as some are upgrades to a traditional soft-top.
The following list of retractable hardtops shows the entry-level price for each model. Many have more expensive trims available, like the BMW M3 and Mercedes-Benz SL63. Conversely, the MX-5 and Chrysler Sebring have retractable hardtops as optional equipment not included on the base model convertibles.
