The Audi A3 Cabriolet sets out to make driving a joy. It's compact and stylish, with the flexibility to make the most of summer days on the road. The interior quality and overall level of equipment are some of the best in class.
A clear highlight of the Cabriolet's sleek design is the folding roof. The fabric hood opens and closes automatically within 18 seconds, and operates at speeds of up to 31mph. A space-saving design ensures that there's plenty of room in the boot when the hood is down.
The car also features front fog lights, a high-mounted third brake light, daytime running lights and smart aluminium window trims.
Enter the cabin and relax into soft cloth seats with full height, head rest and lumbar adjustment. The leather-trimmed multifunction steering wheel includes race-inspired gearshift paddles if you select an S tronic transmission.
Audi gives you the choice of three equipment levels: SE, Sport and S line. The list of features for SE includes the Audi Music Interface and full electric windows. Sport adds dual-zone electronic climate control and front sports seats to the list for greater comfort. S line is the top grade, bringing exclusive design details to the car such as a new front bumper and rear diffuser.
At higher equipment grades, the fabric roof is quicker, insulated and acoustic for an enhanced driving experience. It can also be specified in different colours to contrast beautifully with the body paintwork.
The wide variety of engines offered to power the A3 Cabriolet includes petrol and diesel variants. The most potent is the 2.0-litre diesel at 182bhp and 380Nm of torque, closely followed by the 1.8-litre petrol with 178bhp and up to 280Nm. There are quattro versions of the Cabriolet, running in all-wheel drive to add more grip in handling and cornering.
To boost efficiency, the Driver's Information System provides guidance on how to conserve fuel. Combined with energy-saving start/stop technology, which cuts power to the engine at a standstill, this sends economy soaring to a maximum 74.3mpg combined. That figure is achieved with the 1.6-litre 109bhp diesel engine.
Across the A3 model range, safety is reassuringly high. The Cabriolet's smooth bonnet incorporates active protection to support pedestrians in the unlikely event of a collision. You are also joined by the active roll-over protection system, ABS, full surrounding airbags and Anti-Slip Regulation.
