StreetKa 'best used convertible'

The Ford StreetKa has been selected as the country's best second-hand convertible of the last 10 years.

Launched in 2004, the StreetKa beat vehicles like the popular Mazda MX-5 to top the list of the best 20 used convertibles of the past decade.'s Alistair Jeff said: "Unlike some 'top twenties' that contain exotic and expensive models such as Ferrari and Lamborghini convertibles, wanted to produce a list that relates to the real UK motorist.

"These models were tallied based on factors such as value, reliability and ownership satisfaction - key concerns for the average used car buyer. The Ford StreetKa took the top-spot with a strong performance across our used car criteria."

Other models in the list included MINI One, Honda S2000, Renault Megane CC, Peugeot 207 CC, Volkswagen Eos, Porsche Boxster (987), Jaguar XK Series (X150), Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet, Audi TT Roadster and BMW Z4 Open.
