Audi A3 Cabriolet Confirmed for Australia

February 21st, 2008


The new and elegant Audi A3 Cabriolet is bound to be a show stopper when it appears on the Audi stand at the Melbourne International Motor Show 2008.

Combining eye-catching good looks with the exhilaration of wind-in-your-face driving, the Audi A3 Cabriolet boasts a semi-automatic lightweight soft top (a fully-automatic version is available as an option) which opens in just nine seconds. When open, it takes up very little space thanks to its Z-shaped fold, facilitating a sporty, yet harmonious vehicle design.

The body structure of this luxury Audi convertible contains a high proportion of high-strength and ultra-high-strength steels as well as a multitude of reinforcing measures that provide maximum rigidity and crash safety. The A3 Cabriolet easily fits 4 people.

The large single-frame grille and the headlights dominate the front of the convertible compact model. The standard daytime running lights make the Audi design unmistakable.

Audi’s latest Cabriolet will be launched in Australia around July 2008. The car will be available in several engine variants including a 1.6-litre manual, 1.8 TFSI S tronic and 2.0 TFSI manual and S tronic variants.

Pricing and specification will be released closer to the launch date however Audi Australia expects to sell approximately 120 A3 Cabriolets in 2008.

This stylish new drop-top will appeal to a broad range of luxury car buyers aged 25 to 54 years with an active, outgoing approach to life and a love of the outdoors.
