Introduction, Exterior

Griping is a favourite local past time and one thing we gripe more than any other as a nation is the weather. But our sunny climate is actually made for cabriolets which explains the many models we have available here.

And the new A3 Cabriolet is a vast improvement over its predecessor and closing the gap with its bigger A5 Cabriolet brother. The new car is longer, wider and lighter than the one before which Audi says has improved its ride and handling.

 

Exterior

The new car looks sporty from every angle and has more presence than before. From the front, the aggressively styled lower bumper give the car a purposeful look that mimics its larger A5 brother. The side profile is clean and sleek with an interesting contour line rising to meet the rear arches.

Round the back, there’s a discreet boot lid spoiler that adds to the sportiness of the cabriolet. The soft top roof spoiler retracts in just 18 seconds and when stowed, giving the car a very clean profile. Able to open and close at speeds of up to 50kmh adds another level of convenience here.

We have check others and no doubt this is the best! From the prompt and reliable agent Angie to the honest dealer David, everything is 10/10. Other platform not only charges transactions fee the dealer will squeeze you below market rate.
