What Car? says...

If you fancy some wind-in-your-hair motoring but don’t want to break the bank, there are a good few choices out there. The trouble is that most of them only have enough space for two – no good if you’ve got a family or like to travel with a few friends.

Thankfully, there is hope. The Audi A3 Cabriolet takes the A3 Saloon and lops the roof off to add some drop-top thrills. It may be Audi’s smallest roofless four-seater, but there’s still enough room in the back for a couple of kids or short adults.

Sure, a roofless A5 or Mercedes-Benz E-Class would be even roomier, but they are significantly more expensive. Not that the A3 Cabriolet feels cheap – like other Audis, the interior is high-quality and looks great.

Read on to find out everything you need to know about the A3 Cabriolet, including what the best engine and trim options are. If you’re already sold, don't forget to check out our new car deals by clicking here. You could save a small fortune without any awkward haggling.
