A desirable drop top, the convertible Audi A3 is well built and practical cabriolet available in four trims; Standard, Sport, S Line and Technik.
There is a choice of three petrol engines; 1.2, 1.8 turbo and a 2.0 TFSI as well as either a 1.6 or 2.0 turbodiesel engine, all with manual or s-tronic transmission. The most powerful 2.0 litre TFSI produces 197 bhp, covers 0-60 mph in 7.4 seconds and hits a maximum speed of 144 mph. The Audi A3 Cabriolet offers agile handling and composed ride, with extra strengthening measures fitted to keep it taut. Steering is impressive thanks to Audi’s racetrack inspired servotronic steering system that is fitted as standard, and the Sport trim features sports suspension, giving a firmer ride.
The A3 Cabriolet bucks the current trend for folding metal roofs in favour of a traditional fabric one, and folds down in just nine seconds. The seats are supportive and comfortable, and importantly there is decent space for four people. The boot is a generous 260 litres whether the roof is up or down and the rear sears fold flat for additional load space. In standard form, the A3 Cabriolet comes with air-conditioning, all-round electric windows and alloy wheels, while the Sport trim has the additions of climate control and a fully electric hood. The S line trim maximises the sporting appeal of the A3 cabriolet, with beautifully crafted chrome finishes and an emphasis on discreet quality. This is a classy small car, suitable for everyday driving, so hire your Audi A3 Cabriolet today.
