Best open-top car 2014: Audi A3 Cabriolet 1.8 TFSI Sport
Audi A3 Cabriolet

The Audi A3 Cabriolet is a no-compromise soft-top. Everything about it feels worthy of the premium badge, from the clean styling, to the comfortable, quality interior. It's also fun and reassuring to drive, and refinement is impressive with the roof up. It'll even take four people and their bags without fuss. The fact that the A3 remains brilliant with the roof down is just as important; it's what makes this fun, hassle-free open-top the best you can buy today.

There's a great range of engines, but the 1.8-litre turbocharged petrol engine is a fine choice, being smooth, satisfyingly rapid and impressively refined. It'll even be affordable to run.

Sport trim A3 Cabriolets come with lower, stiffer suspension, but there's the option to have the more comfortable standard suspension for no extra cost. We'd suggest you do, because this more supple set-up does a brilliant job of soaking up the worst our roads can throw at it.

This is one of the few cabriolets in this price bracket that can seat four adults in comfort with the roof up - and when it's folded, passengers remain well shielded from the wind.
