Summer has arrived, which means so have new droptops. The 2012 Fiat 500c with its large retractable cloth roof is now at dealerships, as is Nissan's convertible crossover SUV, the 2011 Murano CrossCabriolet. The battle of 40 mpg small cars continues with the 2012 Hyundai Accent, which is now available for sale.

As always, we remind our readers that we don't list rumored models, only confirmed vehicles and time frames.
