The Audi A3 Cabriolet takes the A3 Saloon and lops the roof off to add some drop-top thrills. It’s Audi’s smallest, four-seat open-top, and it shares most of its engines, transmissions and interior with the saloon. Its closest rival is the BMW 2 Series Convertible.
The A3 Cabriolet has a lightweight fabric roof as opposed to a folding metal hood, and that helps keep its weight to a minimum. Folding down the roof can be done at speeds of up to 31mph, and the operation takes just 18 seconds from start to finish. Its durable interior, excellent build quality and understated styling are some of the A3’s most prized features and are what separate it from others in the class.
