Since the range’s introduction in 1996, the Audi A3 has been critically acclaimed for its style and performance in the compact sector, and now the new A3 Cabriolet can add to this impressive list of accolades.
Trusted car review website Carbuyer.co.uk has voted the A3 Cabriolet as the Best Convertible in their recent Best Cars for 2017 awards.
Editor of Carbuyer Stuart Milne said: "Convertibles are all about feeling the wind in your hair first and image second. No car fulfils these requirements better than the Audi A3 Cabriolet. It’s endlessly classy and desirable, plus it offers space for you and up to three passengers.
"The fabric roof can be raised or lowered at speeds of up to 31mph, and once it’s stowed the boot is still useable. There’s lots of scope for personalisation, and like every other A3, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard. If you want technology to give your A3 Cabriolet a real edge, then the optional Virtual Cockpit replaces the standard dials with a TFT screen. Very smart indeed."
With a bank of driver assistance systems as well, such as traffic jam assist, active lane assist and adaptive cruise control, this vehicle is clearly well equipped and ready for any situation.
