The A3 Cabriolet is a nice car to have because it offers exclusivity too

Verdict – The Audi A3 Cabriolet is a well-rounded convertible because it is practical on most counts, has decent performance to boot, comes with excellent dynamics and gets a lot of features too. While you could get a regular sedan with more space and power from a segment above for that price, the Audi A3 Cabriolet will also offer a lot of exclusivity since convertibles are pretty rare on our roads. So, if you’re a small family and want to enjoy open-top motoring in a car that isn’t exorbitantly priced and is practical for daily usage, the A3 is your best bet.

The Audi A3 Cabriolet is relatively a cheap way to make a statement

What’s Cool

* The A3 looks fresher and sportier with this mid-life update
* Good equipment on offer, decent space in the cabin too
* Driveability, efficiency, ride and handling are very nice

What’s Not So Cool

* Misses out on some of the punch of the 1.8-litre engine

Alternatives: MINI Cooper S Convertible
