The Audi A3 Cabriolet
A cabriolet is a lifestyle. A car with a dream attached. A car in which you envisage yourself cruising around with the sun beaming on your face, wearing expensive shades with dulcet tones serenading you whilst driving empty, winding roads. In the brand new Audi A3 Cabriolet you won’t have to just dream it.
Elegance and strength is a rare combination. It oozes from the A3 Cabriolet. The tactile body and streamlined metallic trims allow you to appreciate its form in all its glory, but with it comes a solid presence that sort of takes your breath away. It’s playful in a Bond sense, cheeky yet you wouldn’t want to mess with it, James himself would be proud.
The interior has class.
Simplicity is key to its elegance and yet it is packed with technology that will make you swoon, even if that’s not what you think you’re looking for. Various options like Audi connect, adaptive cruise control and head-level heating mean you can tailor it like a Saville Row suit to fit you perfectly.
More than a drive, it’s a cruise. Smooth and forgiving, gently peeling back the road. The manual is obviously slightly more responsive in terms of gearing, but the sporty auto is still a joy, and for city driving, is more likely the better option for ease.
Ultimately the A3 Cabriolet is a refined affair, you can feel the lightweight, quiet body whilst driving, making it incredibly comfortable, and accurate, light steering means it is nimble no matter what the type of road. The wind deflector is a perfect defense and you can happily drive at high speeds without ending up with a bird’s nest in place of a hairdo.
You don’t buy a cabriolet for practicality, you buy it for love. However the A3 Cabriolet actually retains practical assets even though you wouldn’t necessarily expect them. The hood can be opened or closed in just in 18 seconds, even whilst driving up to 30mph and is operated via a switch in the centre console, and interior noise is minimal. Even with the hood down, luggage space remains more than enough for that weekend getaway or trip to the airport.
This car is the opitomy of what a true cabriolet should be about. Elegance, class and style. It lives and breathes the elements synonymous with Audi’s reputation.
It’s a machine to behold. A bit like your most fanciable superhero…strong yet tender with an air of grace.
The Audi A3 Cabriolet is a beautiful creature and whilst driving it in Monte Carlo, we definitely felt part of the club. It allows you to buy into a dream that is just waiting to happen…
