Audi A3 Cabriolet 2018 review: snapshot

The A3 Cabriolet is a small two-door convertible.
EXPERT RATING
7.3

The A3 Cabriolet is a small two-door convertible sitting above the A3 Sportback and A3 Sedan with a list price starting at $41,900.

That price will get you into the 1.4 TFSI grade which comes with xenon headlights with LED running lights, leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, a 7.0-inch touchscreen with sat nav, reversing camera, multimedia system with voice control, eight-speaker stereo, Bluetooth connectivity, CD player, front and rear parking sensors, paddle shifters, rear view camera and 17-inch alloy wheels.

The next grade up is the $48,000 2.0 TFSI Sport which adds leather sports front seats, aluminium door sills, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and 17-inch alloys (with a different design).

The 2.0 TFSI quattro S Line lists for $51,600 and brings in lowered sports suspension, 18-inch alloys and LED headlights.

The grade naming hints at the engine sizes – the 1.4 TFSI has a 1.4-litre four-cylinder making 110kW/250Nm; the 2.0 TFSI Sport has 2.0-litre four-cylinder making 140kW/320Nm, while the 2.0 TFSI quattro S line has the same engine but is all-wheel drive – the other two are front-wheel drives.

All engines are turbo-petrols – there is no diesel.

The amount of safety equipment increases as you step up through the grades but all A3s have a five-star ANCAP rating and AEB as standard.
