Audi A3 Cabriolet goes out with a bang
Audi has revealed Final Edition versions of the A3 Cabriolet, which are available from £23,775 OTR.
The new Audi A3 Cabriolet Sport and S line Final Edition models are available now, and will replace existing Sport and S line versions.
Both lines add thousands of pounds' worth of extra equipment onto the standard A3 Cabriolet, including Vienna leather upholstery, a BOSE sound system, DVD navigation and more.
Both Final Edition variants are available with a range of three turbo-charged, directly injected petrol units including the 1.2-litre TFSI, the 1.8-litre TFSI and the 2.0-litre TFSI.
Turbo-charged direct injection diesel engines are also available - a 1.6-lityre TDI and a 2.0-litre TDI. Depending on the choice of engine, the Final Editions can potentially return 65.7mpg and emit 114g/km of CO2.
The soft-tops promise maximum comfort, convenience and a number of other enhancements, according to Audi.
The Sport Final Edition keeps all the equipment from the Sport model, replacing its interior cloth with Vienna leather. In addition Audi has included front seat heating, rear parking sensors, automatic headlights, Bluetooth and more.
The Sport's 17-inch alloy wheels have been kept, as has the car's sports suspension, dual-zone climate control features and others.
The S line Final Edition offers more luxury options, including the option for 18-inch S line alloy wheels with a new five-segment spoke design. Full Vienna leather is also offered, as are technological enhancements including Xenon plus headlamps, iPod connectivity and more.
Audi has labelled the Final Edition as 'a new departure for the soft-top', with the 1.2-litre TFSI Sport the lowest-priced model at £23,775.
The most expensive option that buyers can consider is the 2.0-litre TDI S line, which is available from £29,465.
Audi had an impressive 2012, recorded a phenomenal 1,455,100 sales worldwide for its cars.
