Audi has showcased the Audi S3 Cabriolet at the Auto Expo 2016.
The Audi S3 Cabriolet, the performance variant of the Audi A3 Cabriolet, measures 4,434 mm in length, 1,960 mm in width and 1,388 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,596 mm. The performance variant sits 21 mm lower, thanks to the S sport suspension.
Up front, the exterior is distinguished with a unique Singleframe grille that’s surrounded by a chrome frame and features a platinum-gray insert, an ‘S3’ logo and double cross-struts; and air intakes with powerful edges and filled with double ribs and honeycomb inserts. The windshield frame and beltline have aluminum strips on them and the mirror housings also have an aluminum look. At the rear, there’s a platinum-gray diffuser featuring four vertical ribs and full-width, alumnium-look bar, and dual twin tailpipes.
To go with the sporty exterior, the interior is completely done in black. S-specific dark gray metallic instrument dials, white digits and needles and 3D ‘S3’ logo, and a boost pressure indicator in the tachometer in the instrument panel; flat-bottom steering wheel with ‘S3’ logo; S sport seats; Matte brushed aluminum inlays; and aluminum-look controls are a few among the many interior specialties of the Audi S3 Cabriolet.
The Audi S3 Cabriolet is powered by the Audi S3 sedan’s 2.0-litre TFSI four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 221 kW (300 PS/296 hp) and 380 Nm of torque. The turbocharged engine can be had with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed S tronic transmission.
