2015 Audi A3 Cabriolet is a Low Priced Luxury Convertible Worth Taking a Look At

Audi A3 Cabrio

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.

Audi A3 Cabrio is a Convertible with an Unbelievably Low Price Tag

Audi A3 Cabrio

Audi cars are often expensive and are targeted at the elite owners who can afford one. And, if you are planning to buy a convertible from this luxury brand, it is obvious that they may cost an arm and a leg right? Wrong!  

While it is known that Audi is a luxury brand which is known for its amazing sedans and SUVs, the manufacturer has a strong focus on the untapped market at the moment. Companies like Audi, BMW and Mercedes have spent decades wooing premium customers in Europe, the US, the UK among other parts of the world. But, after nearly saturating the market, they have realized that it is time to make some more money from people who love their brand, but just can’t afford them in their lifetime.

The newly launched A3 Cabrio is a perfect example of a budget convertible car. There is no term called a budget convertible, but Audi has made it possible, because the vehicle costs an unbelievable $36,525, including delivery charges. A Chevrolet convertible might set you back with the same price tag, but it can hardly convince the onlookers that you are almost rich which the Audi can do with the first look.

The A3 Cabrio features leather covers on the seats, has dual zone climate control and renders an impressive 170 horsepower. The vehicle is powered by a four cylinder turbocharged engine, which offers an RPM ranging between 1,600 and 4,400. The car delivers 200 foot pounds of torque which is something no other convertible in the same price range could offer. The Cabrio directly competes with the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, Mini Cooper and the popular Volkswagen Beetle.

While these convertibles from various other manufacturers are good in terms of performance and fuel economy, the brand value that Audi has and the increased performance it delivers helps it stand out from the crowd. Besides an increased RPM and Torque, the Audi A3 Cabrio delivers good mileage. It delivers 24 miles per gallon in the city and 35 miles per gallon on a highway which makes it a reliable choice for the daily commuter.

An added advantage that Cabrio owners get is the professional, business like design of the Audi convertible which is conveniently placed in between the muscular look of the Mustang and the miniscule Beetle. The 2015 A3 Cabrio is yet to receive its safety rating, but its counterpart, the A3 sedan received a five star rating and a vehicle in the series could be no less.
