What's the news?
Audi is saying goodbye to the A3 Cabriolet with Sport and S Line Final Edition models replacing the existing offerings. The specification is improved and includes leather upholstery, new wheels and an improved in-car entertainment. Prices start at £23,775 for the Sport Final Edition and £26,210 for the S Line.
Most of the changes relate to the cabin and equipment levels. Though the S Line version does get a new design of five-spoke, 18-inch alloy wheel and Xenon headlamps with LED running lights.
Both Final Editions come with Vienna leather upholstery. Additional equipment on the Sport includes heated seats, parking sensors and Bluetooth phone connection. The S Line adds a Bose sound system, MP3 connection and DVD-based satellite navigation.
Three petrol and two diesel engines are available with power outputs ranging from 105- to 200hp. The best fuel economy and CO2 emissions are 65.7mpg and 114g/km from the 1.6-litre turbodiesel model.
There is also a standard A3 Cabriolet, which continues unchanged, priced from £21,435. It's expected that the all-new Audi A3 Cabriolet will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
