2014 Audi A3 Cabriolet

The new A3 Cabriolet has a soft cloth top that is stretched over a lightweight kinematic mechanism made of magnesium-steel, and it complements the car’s design perfectly. At the press of a button, the top opens or closes electro-hydraulically in less than 18 seconds, even while driving up to 50 km/h (31.07 mph). In the opened state, the top – folded into three layers – rests in a tray that barely affects luggage capacity, which is 287 liters (10.14 cubic ft).

Road Test: 2013 Audi A3 Sportback 1.4 TFSI S tronic

The Audi A3 Sportback 1.4 TFSI is powered by a new 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine. Among other things, the new engine features an aluminium block which has helped to drop its weight. At just 107 kilograms, the new engine weighs 21 kilograms less than its predecessor. With the FSI direct injection, the four-cylinder, 1,395cc, turbocharged engine produces 122 horsepower. Doesn’t sound very impressive for this sporty hatchback, but actually the 1.4 TFSI delivers quite brisk performance. Especially at lower speeds the A3 Sportback with the 1.4 TFSI moves very nicely. When you need to accelerate to motorway speed, or when you’re overtaking, you could use more power, but otherwise this small engine delivers very enjoyable performance. Engine’s top torque of 200 Newton metres is delivered between 1,400 and 4,000 rpm, so you don’t even have to give it a lot of revs to make it move.
