Enthusiasts who are attracted to the driving sensation of top-down motoring now have another option to consider in a new segment for Audi. The very first Audi S3 cabriolet has arrived in Australia, with all the performance expected of an Audi S model, together with the striking styling of Audi’s new compact Cabriolet model line.

“For enthusiasts, an S3 Cabriolet at this price point will deliver the perfect sports car combination of open-top exhilaration and dynamic driving,” said Andrew Doyle, Managing Director, Audi Australia Pty Ltd.

“We are delighted to offer an entirely new S3 model in the compact Cabriolet segment, catering to a very different customer than we have been able to satisfy before. Not only is the new Audi A3 Cabriolet the first convertible available with Audi’s renowned quattro all-wheel-drive technology, we are now adding an S3 Cabriolet as a tantalising addition to this aspirational segment of the market,” said Doyle.

The S3 Cabriolet is powered by a 2.0 TFSI four-cylinder engine that develops 210kW and 380Nm. Acceleration performance is very good, reaching 100km/h from rest in 5.5 seconds.

The sporty six-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission is standard on the S3 Cabriolet, and together with Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive system, it lends itself to exciting driving dynamics. Audi’s magnetic ride variable damper system is also available as an option, for even more discerning sports car drivers.

In the Audi S3 Cabriolet, a new active roll-over system protects occupants in the event of a roll-over. All variants of the new Audi A3 have been awarded the maximum 5-star ANCAP safety rating.
