Audi A3 Cabriolet Final Edition launched
Audi has confirmed that production of the current A3 Cabriolet will stop in March 2013; Final Edition models replace the previous Sport and S line models, and add extra luxury equipment for a comparatively small premium.
For £700 more than the previous Sport models, A3 Cabriolet Sport Final Edition cars add:
Automatic headlights and wipers
Heated front seats
Rear parking sensors
S line Final Edition models cost £1550 more than outgoing S line models, and add:
Audi Media Interface
Both versions are available with the full range of A3 Cabriolet engines, so there's a choice of 1.2, 1.8 and 2.0-litre TFSI petrols, or 1.6 and 2.0 TDI diesels.
Standard A3 Cabriolet models remain on sale, with prices starting at £21,435.

An all-new Audi A3 Cabriolet is expected to be revealed later this year. Spy shots suggest the next model will retain the current car's cloth roof, and that it will be longer than the current car, with a saloon-style boot similar to the Audi A5 Cabriolet's.
