Audio A3 cabriolet set to debut at Geneva show
THE new 300ps Audi A3 cabriolet, which makes its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month, is available to order from April with first UK deliveries expected in July. Priced from £25,790, it has a soft top with an electrohydraulic drive which enables it to open or close in 18 seconds, even at speeds of up to 31mph.
Powered by a 2.0 TFSI engine, the A3 cabrio can accelerate to 62mph in 5.4 seconds with top speed red lining at an electronically limited 155mph. Average economy has been measured at 39.8mpg and CO2 emissions at 165g/km.
On the road, a switch to dynamic mode not only sharpens the throttle response but also opens flaps in the exhaust system to increase the soundtrack as the car accelerates.
Inside there is room for four adults with an easy-entry feature for convenient access to the rear. The 285-litre luggage compartment can be expanded by dropping down the rear seat backs.
Standard features include heated front S sports seats with embossed logos and upholstery finished in Nappa leather.
For snazzy red inserts opt for the Parade package which adds upper shoulder sections and door trim inserts in Parade red with contrasting stitching.
