Conversion factor

For the past 40 years we have needed our cars to be suitable to carry elderly family members. We are now searching for a car that is fun to drive, preferably a convertible, but also need to install a child car seat. It would also be helpful if the car handled well in snow and icy conditions. We drive an average 15,000 miles pa and a budget of up to £35k. Can you help in our search for just such a car?
