The Audi A3 Cabriolet* is distinguished by its sporty and elegant proportions and low weight. Like every Audi convertible, it has a lightweight cloth top. An acoustic top with very effective noise insulation is available as an option. The standard hood is black; the acoustic hood is also available in gray and garnet red as well as with headlining in rock gray.
Its electrohydraulic drive raises or lowers the hood even at speeds up to 50 km/h (31.1 mph). When the soft top is down, it rests in a tray. An active rollover protection system protects occupants in the event of a rollover.
Another feature of the A3 Cabriolet is a semi-electrically operated seat, which makes seat adjustment significantly easier for the driver.
Audi can deliver the A3 Cabriolet with one of six engines: three TFSI engines and three TDI units. Their power output ranges from 81 kW (110 hp) to 140 kW (190 hp). quattro permanent all-wheel drive can be selected with the 2.0 TFSI and the two 2.0 TDI engines.
- 1.4 TFSI with 85 kW (115 hp)
- 1.4 TFSI COD ultra with 110 kW (150 hp)
- 2.0 TFSI and 2.0 TFSI quattro with 140 kW (190 hp)
