Audi recently revealed the new A3 Cabriolet and here are all the details and the official pic of the new car. The new Audi A3 Cabriolet has grown compared to the previous model: its length increased from 4.24 to 4.42 meters (13.91 to 14.50 ft), its wheelbase from 2.58 to 2.60 meters (8.46 to 8.53 ft) and its width from 1.77 to 1.79 meters (5.81 to 5.87 ft). Only its height (1.41 meters [4.63 ft]) was reduced by 15 millimeters (0.59 in). This gives the four-seat convertible a more elegant and sporty look on the road. Luggage capacity grew by 60 liters (2.12 cubic ft), and it is easier to load.
Engine options on the A3 Cabrio include the three newly developed engines: Two TFSI engines producing 140 hp and 180 hp from 1.4 and 1.8 liters of engine displacement, respectively and the 2.0 TDI which develops 150 hp. Other engines will follow – ranging from the 1.6 TDI with 110 hp to the 2.0 TFSI, which will power the Audi S3 Cabriolet with 300 hp. All engines in the new Audi A3 Cabriolet combine the technologies of direct injection, turbocharging and a start-stop-system.
The new Audi A3 Cabriolet will be manufactured at Audi’s plant in Győr, Hungary, which Audi has expanded with an investment of more than 900 million euros. Sales begin this autumn in Germany, and first deliveries will be in the first quarter of 2014. Many sporty and comfort/convenience options round out the standard features; they include the deluxe key and S sport seats with integrated head restraints and diamond topstitching in the shoulder area.
