Audi A3 Cabriolet Final Edition
The Audi A3 Cabriolet Final Edition offers loads of extra equipment with savings of up to £3600
Audi has announced its A3 Cabriolet Final Edition. As the unambiguous name suggests, the current A3 drop-top doesn’t have long for this world. The all-new mk3 A3 released in 2012 is set to spawn a soft-top variant later in the year.
It follows the end-of-line special edition formula to the letter, too, ticking a host of options boxes for a smaller premium than you’d normally pay.
Final Edition treatment can be applied to both Sport and S-line spec A3 Cabriolets. Sport models range from £23,775 for a 104bhp 1.2 TFSI to £28,180 for a 197bhp 2.0 TFSI, representing a £2340 premium over standard. That buys you heated leather seats, rear parking sensors, automatic headlights, cruise control and Bluetooth connectivity. Audi claims a £1605 saving compared to specifying that equipment separately.
The S-line Final Edition costs £2435 more than standard, prices ranging from £26,210 to £30,615. It benefits from a new set of 18in alloy wheels, leather seats, xenon headlights, satnav and a BOSE sound system, apparently saving a heftier £3640.
A new cabriolet will bolster the third generation Audi A3 range alongside other models, including a saloon and – rumours suggest – a slightly more rugged Allroad Sportback model.
