Fancy a cabriolet or open roof - what would you recommend?

I fancy a cabriolet or open roof and previously had a Peugeot 206cc. I do about 17,500 miles a year mainly on my own on motorways and A roads.

Is a Fiat 500c good for this type of driving or would I be better looking at something like a 207cc? What car would you recommend?

Yes, fine. The 500C 1.2 is very reliable but lacks power and brio. The 500C 0.9 TwinAir is more powerful and much more fun. I've driven one 700 miles over 2 days, no problem.
