Engine

Topless and powerful

At the heart of the 2018 Audi A3 Cabriolet lies a 2.0-liter turbocharged TFSI® engine that churns out 186 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque, going from 0-60 mph in 6.9 seconds. An available quattro® all-wheel drive model ups the ante for acceleration, zipping from 0-60 mph in just 5.9 seconds thanks to a more robust 220 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Either way, the A3 family brings added performance to its compact silhouette.

Lighten the load

A weight-saving MacPherson strut front suspension with an aluminum subframe and dynamic axle kinematic frees up unnecessary heft. At the other end, a four-link rear suspension adds balance. Combined, the A3 Cabriolet provides an exceptional driving experience.

Go the distance

The A3 Cabriolet is made for road trips. In addition to performance, the engine’s resourcefulness also helps with fuel economy. With an EPA-estimated combined 28 mpg, the A3 Cabriolet optimizes each ride, whether you’re cruising on the highway or driving stop-and-go in the city.
