Here’s the first rendering of the upcoming Audi A3 Cabriolet. Enjoy!
The new A3 Cabrio will be bigger than the model it replaces though it should still be small enough to prevent cannibalizing sales of the larger A5 Cabrio.The car’s only direct rival will be the upcoming 2-Series Convertible from BMW, which replaces the current 1-Series Convertible, although we could eventually see a convertible added to Mercedes-Benz’s new small car family.
Powertrain options are likely to include a base 1.8-liter TFSI gasoline engine rated at 180 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, as well as a more powerful 2.0-liter unit. The high-performance S3 Cabrio will feature the same 2.0-liter TFSI with 296 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque found in the S3 Hatch and S3 Sportback.
