My current choice for a convertible with aerocap would be the Metro. With a Beetle can opener convertible, there's not much to be gained.

I have never seen a convertible Metro or Swift, yet it seems quite cool.

There sure was a lot of encouragement to do an aerocap in 2010.

I won't visit Canada so soon, yet if I were going there possibly I would be tempted to at least take a look at it.
