Even though a large part of enjoying alfresco motoring relies on the car’s capability to achieve huge speed and to do it quickly, Audi realized there are who want a convertible just because of the way it looks and just to get some air in their hair. For these people who don’t care much for speed they launched the Audi A3 Cabriolet 1.6 TDI.
This entry-level Audi A3 Cabriolet comes with a 110PS four-cylinder that takes 11.4 seconds to reach 62 mph and has a top speed of only 124mph. But on the bright side it returns 72 mpg and has a CO2 rating of just 104g/km.
As for the features and equipment, you can choose the all-new A3 Cabriolet 1.6 TDI with SE, Sport or S line specification options. The standard kit includes the MMI Radio with DAB digital reception and powered retractable colour monitor, preparation for SD card-based satellite navigation, air conditioning or climate control, light and rain sensors and an automatic fabric hood that opens and closes in less than 18 seconds.
There are also a Sport and S-Line versions, probably as a joke. They offer stuff like 17-inch alloy wheels, lowered sports suspension and front sports seats, while S line models are fitted with 18-inch alloy wheels, Xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights and S line interior and exterior design enhancements.
