Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

Audi showcased the top-less version of the A3 at the Auto Expo. Unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year, the new A3 Cabriolet is based on the sedan’s MQB platform and measures 4.42 meters in length and comes with a wheelbase spanning 2.6 meters.

The soft cloth roof is stretched using a kinematic mechanism made of magnesium-steel. It takes 18 seconds to close and can be operated at speeds of up to 50 km/h.

While the A3 Cabrio is available with 1.4-liter and 1.8-liter petrol engines apart from a 2.0-liter diesel, Audi chose to display the higher capacity petrol variant at the Expo. This 1.8-liter TFSI unit produces 180 hp and comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed S-Tronic automatic.

Audi will soon launch the A3 Sedan in India. There is a good possibility that the A3 Cabrio may be offered as a niche, lifestyle product.
