PRICES HAVE now confirmed for the new Audi premium compact cabriolet, which will reach the UK in good time for top-down motoring.
The ideal antidote to the winter blues - the new Audi A3 Cabriolet can be administered by Audi Centres from this week as the brand's first premium compact class 'open top' opens for order in standard, Sport and S line trim, with OTR prices ranging from £20,750 to £27,060. Deliveries will begin in May.
The guiding principle behind the latest Audi soft-top was the achievement of the best possible balance between the essential fun factor of a roadster and the refinement and day-to-day usability of a fixed roof premium class car. As a result, the A3 Cabriolet not only converts to topless mode and back extraordinarily rapidly, but also genuinely accommodates four passengers, without ruling out impressive luggage capacity that is expandable thanks to the standard split/fold rear seat.
The majority of the strong and responsive TFSI petrol and TDI diesel engines powering the A3 and A3 Sportback are carried over to the new Cabriolet, including the 160PS 1.8 TFSI petrol, the 200PS 2.0 TFSI petrol, the 105PS 1.9 TDI and the 2.0 TDI with common rail piezo fuel injection, developing 140PS. These are combined with either a five or six-speed manual gearbox, depending on version, or the option, for all models bar the 1.9 TDI, of the acclaimed S tronic twin-clutch transmission.
Standard versions of the A3 Cabriolet will boast a generous equipment list that includes 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, powered windows and mirrors, a Chorus radio with single CD drive and semi-automatic hood operation - the hood is attached to and released from the windscreen rail manually but retracts and raises at the touch of a button.
On top of this, the Sport specification, costing an additional £1,850, combines features such as larger 17-inch alloy wheels, sports suspension and sports seats with fully automatic hood operation, which adds automated 'hands-free' detachment from, and attachment to, the windscreen rail, plus a wind deflector. The hood also incorporates additional acoustic insulation, maximising the potential for enjoyment of the upgraded Concert radio.
