What's the best convertible for £7k?

I am thinking of buying a convertible car with a metal folding hardtop. It needs to seat four adults and can be either a petrol or diesel. I have £7000 to spend, what do you recommend?
That will be a Ford Focus CC, Peugeot 307/308, Renault Megane or Vauxhall Astra Twintop. Colts, 207s, Micras, Tigras are too small. Check them all out at
