It is a shame that our weather is mostly extreme all the times to enjoy a cabriolet. Stil, the compact A3 Cabriolet looks good and who knows, it might find a few fashion conscious takers here.
Anyways the new A3 Cabriolet, to put it in numbers, has its length increased from 4.24 to 4.42 meters, its wheelbase from 2.58 to 2.60 meters and its width from 1.77 to 1.79 meters. Only its height (1.41 meters) has been reduced by 15 millimeters.
The looks is the usual Audi styling and just like its handsome saloon sibling the A3 Cabriolet looks compact and has more muscle than the last gen version. The details includes Singleframe radiator grille, big air intakes in the bumper and the optional LED headlights.
The new A3 Cabriolet has a soft cloth top which we think suits the car and the top opens or closes electro-hydraulically in less than 18 seconds, even while driving up to 50 km/h. A fully automatic acoustic top is available as an alternative with three exterior colors of Black, Gray and Brown, and its roofliner is available in black and lunar silver.
The new A3 Cabriolet is lighter than the previous generation and the three new engines for this new Audi seem fast enough. The two TFSI engines produce 140 bhp and 180 bhp from 1.4 and 1.8 liters of engine displacement and the 2.0 TDI makes 150 bhp. For those who need more power a 's' version is coming soon.
