2016 Audi A3 CABRIOLET 2.0T Progressiv
Serious style arrives in the compact convertible class.Audi hasn’t had a sedan-based convertible in its lineup since the advent of the A5 Cabriolet in 2009, at least not in name, so the A3 marks a return to a formula that won a lot of fans over to the four-ringed brand during the A4 Cabriolet years.
The 2016 Audi A3 marks the second year of production for Audi's compact sedan and soft-top convertible (Cabriolet), but the honeymoon's far from over. Like the original A4 from the late 1990s, the pint-sized A3 has struck a chord with shoppers who appreciate its relatively modest dimensions and pricing. Unlike many entry-level luxury models over the years, the A3 manages to capture the essence of the brand, delivering authentic Audi style, quality and performance despite its affordability. You're not slumming it if you choose the A3; you're just picking the Audi that happens to fit your life. The 2016 Audi A3 comes either as a four-door compact sedan with seating for five or a two-door convertible (Cabriolet) with seating for four and a power-folding fabric roof. There are three main trim levels: Komfort, Progressiv and Technik.Trim levels for the sedan and convertible have essentially the same equipment.
The 2.0 TFSI is optional on both body styles. All-wheel drive is standard with this engine. An A3 2.0 TFSI sedan accelerated from zero to 100 km/h in a quick 5.8 seconds, while the heavier 2.0 TFSI convertible needed 6.2 seconds The 2016 A3's exterior closely resembles that of other Audis, and the result is an interior that's a standout for the price. The jet-engine-inspired air vents and expensive-feeling switchgear are suitably luxurious, as is the fluid action of the MMI display as it rises automatically from its slot in the top of the dashboard.It's hard to think of any other car in Audi's recent history that's been improved so dramatically from one generation to the next as this MK2 model A3 Cabriolet.
You name it, it's better. Clever design, the way the car drives, practicality, running costs, equipment; everything's all a big step on, an observation which perhaps is truest when it comes to the way this thing looks. Where the original version was a convertible that seemed pretty good on paper, it just didn't have that essential element of desirability that marks a great open-top car, too dumpy to really cut a dash. This MK2 model rectified that. By any measure it's a seriously handsome piece of styling, effectively turning the tables on its nearest competitors
