New A3 Cabrio starts at £25,790

Audi A3 Cabrio-1Audi dealerships have opened their order books for the all-new A3 Cabriolet. Priced from £25,790, and rising to £32,420, first deliveries are expected in April next year.

The cabrio’s fabric roof — fitted with a glass rear window — opens in a little over 18-seconds and can be operated at speeds up to 31mph. It folds into a tray in the bootspace, which still allows 275-litres of stowage.

Sport and S line versions of the car also get an additional second, more sound-absorbent acoustic soft-top with three-layer inner padding fitted as standard. It’s an option on the SE spec car.

At 1365kg, the new A3 cabrio tips the scales 50kg lighter than the outgoing model.

Audi A3 Cabrio-4Standard kit includes iPod connectivity, DAB and automatic lights and wipers, plus 16in alloys, aircon and Bluetooth.

The suspension settings of Sport and S line models are interchangeable as no-cost options. The initial engine range includes 1.4 TFSI engines with cylinder-on-demand technology, 1.8 TFSI in two power outputs and a 2.0-litre TDI.

February sees the introduction of a further range of powerplants, including the 1.6TDI, which in other versions of the A3 delivers 74.3mpg and 99g/km CO2. A more powerful 180bhp 2.0TDI — available with the choice of either front-wheel drive or Audi’s all-wheel drive quattro system — also arrives in February.
