Singapore's National Day is just round the corner and what better way to celebrate her birthday than to enjoy the fireworks display in a cool convertible?

04 Aug 2022

For those who have lost count, Singapore turns 57 years of age in just a couple of days. Yes, that's 57 years of independence, and within this time we saw 35 years of MRT, 32 years of COE, and 13 years of ERP. These alphabets, while problematic and frustrating to deal with from time to time, play a very big part in making Singapore unique.

And what better way to celebrate our uniqueness than to enjoy the exciting fireworks display in a cool convertible with that special someone? Here are our unique recommendations that look undoubtedly appropriate with our flag's colours...

1. Fiat 500 Convertible

What a lovely car for a lovely event, this Fiat 500C
If you're the sort who's into something a little different, a little special and just a little quirky, then the Fiat 500 Convertible is something that you can consider. With its compact, drop-top stature, this Fiat here is the perfect car to enjoy the fireworks during this year's National Day celebration at Marina Bay.

With its perky 1.4-litre powerplant that produces some 100bhp and 131Nm of torque via a six-speed autobox, you can take a slow drive around the area to find a nice parking spot with that special someone. Just pray it doesn't rain.

I am so suitable for this quirky cutesy. Find out more about the Fiat 500 Convertible here now!

2. Honda City Cabriolet

The Honda City Cabriolet is an ultra-rare car
If you're lucky enough, you may well be able to get your hands on this car in Singapore because the one and only unit is currently up for sale on our used car listing right now.

This ultra-rare car utilises a 1.2-litre engine that's good for 65bhp and 98Nm of torque and will complete the century sprint in 13.7 seconds. But you and I both know buyers of such a car aren't going to be fussy about the speed or power output. Instead, this collector's item - if I may call it such - is more for the driver and the passenger to enjoy the sun-in-your-face, wind-in-your-hair sort of experience. That's to say it's one that's very suitable for our National Day fireworks viewing!

I am proud to be a Singaporean! Find our more about the Honda City Cabriolet here now!

3. MINI Cooper Cabriolet

Perfect for fireworks display on National Day is the MINI Cooper Cabriolet
MINI fans can rejoice knowing that an already cool car can be even cooler with an option of a drop-top. There are, thankfully, several MINI Cooper Cabriolet units available on the used car market now, so if you're ever looking for one, you know which site to surf.

Launched in 2009 in Singapore, this facelifted car here comes with a 1.6-litre engine that pumps out some 121bhp and 160Nm of torque via a six-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels. Plus, it's a MINI, so you can expect sharp steering responses and taut turns. Best of all, you can do all of this with the top down as you search for a good location around Marina Bay.

I am all for good locations... and sharp steering responses! Find out more about the MINI Cooper Cabriolet here now!

4. Saab 9-3 Convertible

Want space and pace during the fireworks display? The Saab 9-3 Convertible is your answer
Inspired by aeroplanes, the Saab brand has always had a niche and loyal following in Singapore. Best of all, there are multiple body styles to choose from with the Saab 9-3. From wagon to sedan and this convertible here (different generations), there's a Saab for everyone with different needs and wants.

And if you, just like us, are keen on having a good view of the fireworks this year with your family without wanting to squeeze with the crowd, the Saab 9-3 Convertible is a good choice that comes with sufficient space and pace. A wheelbase of over 2,600mm and the 2.0-litre powerplant making 207bhp and over 300Nm of torque will see to that.

I need a convertible that has space and grace. Find out more about the Saab 9-3 Convertible here now!

5. Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet

You can hardly go wrong with the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet
We would have gone with the long-forgotten Volkswagen Eos, but that car is almost impossible to find in Singapore now. Thank god Volkswagen brought back the Golf Cabriolet then.

The Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet combines the familiar fun of a Golf and the desirable drop-top disposition for all four occupants. This means you get a solid 1.4-litre powerplant that will churn out 158bhp and 240Nm of torque from the word go. Also, the fabric soft top folds up or down in just nine seconds, and can be called into action at speeds of up to 30km/h. In other words, you can start folding your roof down as you find a nice parking spot for the fireworks at Marina Bay this year during our National Day celebration!

I would kill to drive and lower my top at the same time! Find out more about the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet here now!
