For customers who cannot afford a luxury convertible, the 2015 Audi A3 Cabriolet is an ideal choice. The low priced luxury convertible comes from a popular brand and the specs and features are more than enough to deliver a luxury cabriolet driving experience.
As mentioned, the highest selling point of the 2015 A3 Cabriolet is its low price, starting at just $36,525 including the destination charge; the cabriolet is more than solid. The standard equipment includes dual-zone climate control, leather seats and much more goodies. None of those goodies can be found in other convertibles released with a 2015 model year, including the Mini Copper, the Ford Mustang, the Chevy Camaro and the Volkswagen Beetle.
The entry model of the 2015 Audi A3 Cabriolet is powered by 170 ponies with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine under the hood. While it is not the muscle car like the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro are, the A3 Cabriolet offers a business-like environment enhanced by beautiful craftsmanship. The top speed the A3 Cabriolet can reach is 130mph.
Inside the A3 Cabriolet, drivers will find a set of controls that are all well placed and positioned to ease the driving experience. With firm seats and a steering wheel whose height seems just about right; the driver feels extremely comfortable while maneuvering the city with the convertible.
The only downside of the exterior and the body of the 2015 A3 Cabriolet is that when sitting behind trucks and SUVs in traffic, the lower pavement positioning of the convertible doesn’t offer great view.
With the A3 Cabriolet, Audi excels in delivering excellent fuel efficiency. The 2015 Audi A3 Cabriolet sits third on the ranks for fuel mileage, just behind the Mini Cooper and the Smart ForTwo Passion Cabrio. The A3 delivers 24mpg while driving in the city and 35mpg when taking the highway. The result is a combined rating of 28mpg.
The A3 Cabriolet is also pretty safe and secure vehicle. The sedan version of the A3 scored five out of five on the passenger protection test conducted by the Federal government. While there is no data on the 2015 A3 Cabriolet, the same safety features are inside as the sedan.
The optional equipment for the 2015 A3 Cabriolet includes navigation package, scuba blue metallic color for the exterior and a premium plus package that includes 18 inch wheels, heated seats, aluminum interior and heated mirrors.
