3. Fiat 124 Spider $24,995

The Italian brand has an affordable convertible design known as 124 Spider. If it reminds you of a Mazda MX-5 Miata, that’s because both are built on the same platform and share many components. One major difference between the two other than Italian flair is the Spider's turbocharged Fiat engine.
