Sporty, versatile and elegant – the Audi A3 Cabriolet impresses with its flowing lines and fully automatic fabric top. Technically, the open four-seater sets standards with consistent lightweight construction, highly efficient engines and efficient assistance systems.
The powerfully modelled bonnet, the striking singleframe grille and the flat headlights underline the dynamic appearance of the Audi A3 Cabriolet.
The Audi A3 Cabriolet features striking combination rear lights with individual tail light graphics. In addition, the LED and Audi Matrix LED headlamps have dynamic indicators built into the LED combination rear lamps.
The Audi A3 Cabriolet with striking lighting graphics: bi-xenon units are standard, LED headlamps and Audi Matrix LED headlamps are available as options.
Different trim lines offering you an individual choice – in addition to that, there is also the S line sport package, for a dynamic appearance.
The interior offers the top quality typical of Audi: the three-spoke steering wheel can be heated on request.
At the centre of the terminal: the round turntable/push button and its ring, that is illuminated in white with the optional MMI touch. On its surface it carries the touch-sensitive touchpad.
Another highlight on board is the optional innovative operating and display concept of the all-digital Audi virtual cockpit.
The Audi phone box in the centre armrest wirelessly connects a compatible mobile phone to the car antenna via near-field coupling and enables inductive charging.
The high-end HiFi solution: the optionally available Bang & Olufsen sound system.
Concentrated and taut
The Audi A3 Cabriolet is precise and expressive in every detail; even the front expresses the car's determined character. The Singleframe radiator grille with tapered upper corners is stone gray; its cross fins and the Audi rings protrude in a three-dimensional look. A slender, chrome frame surrounds the grille. The wedge-shaped headlights with their wave-like lower edges are cut with a flat profile; a chrome-plated wing contours its interior.
Noiseless & fully automatic
Like every open-top Audi, the Audi A3 Cabriolet has a fully automatic top made of cloth, which fits in harmoniously with the car's design lines. The top opens or closes even while driving at speeds up to 50 km/h (31.07 mph). When the top is down, it takes up very little space in the trunk and it is lighter than a comparable folding steel roof; this reduces the overall weight of the open-top four-seater and is advantageous in lowering its center of gravity.
Progressive lighting technology
Night becomes day: the optional Audi Matrix LED headlights provide bright and even illumination of the road. Within limits of the system, oncoming and preceding vehicles are detected and faded out so that other areas between and next to them continue to be fully illuminated. Highly adaptive light distribution not only improves illumination of the road surface, but also ensures greater safety and comfort. In addition, the dynamic flashing light underlines the progressive lighting technology – also at the rear.
Sporty & dynamic
The Audi A3 Cabriolet also features state-of-the-art transmission technology. The 1.8 TFSI is coupled with a seven-speed S tronic; together with the Audi drive select dynamic driving system (standard in Ambition), this lightning-fast dual-clutch transmission offers a free-wheeling function that further reduces fuel consumption. The 1.4 TFSI cylinder on demand transfer power to the front wheels via a manual transmission. The quattro all-wheel drive system for the A3 Cabriolet will also be available.
*Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km*: 5.7–5.1; Combined CO2 emissions in g/km*: 129–117 g/km
Comfortable and innovative
The highlight in the interior of the Audi A3 Cabriolet is the Audi virtual cockpit. In addition, the optional heated three-spoke steering wheel and the massage function available as an option for the driver’s seat offer additional comfort and ensure a pleasant ride. The various equipment lines give you an individual selection – in addition to the basic equipment, there is also the S line sports package for a dynamic appearance.
To keep all relevant information in view while driving, the Audi A3 Cabriolet optionally offers the fully digital Audi virtual cockpit. The instrument cluster with high-resolution 12.3-inch display offers you an even better overview. A wide range of intelligent technologies is also available as an option: thus, the top infotainment system MMI Navigation plus with MMI touch and voice control – for intuitive control – is available for the Audi A3 Cabriolet.
With an extensive range of driver assistance systems, driving overland and through the city is even safer with the Audi A3 Cabriolet: for example with the transversal traffic assistant at the rear, that warns you of a possible collision risk when parking out. The optional traffic jam assistant, which works in conjunction with the Audi adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go function, also ensures even greater driving safety thanks to the integrated spacer.
Sporty, elegant & open
With a length of 4.42 meters and a wheelbase of 2.60 meters, the Audi A3 Cabriolet has a sporty stance on the road. In it’s basic version, the open four-seater just weighs 1,345 kilograms.
