The 2018 Audi A3 Convertible is a subcompact convertible offered in 3 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $40,050. For that price, it mainly competes with the BMW 2 Series Convertible, Volkswagen Beetle Convertible, and the Mini Cooper John Cooper Works Convertible. Between 3 trims, the A3 Convertible offers 2 powertrains. The base engine is a 2.0L turbocharged Inline-4 capable of making 186 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. If more power is required, this same engine produces 220 horsepower in the Quattro AWD variants of the A3 Convertible. Both versions are mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The A3 Convertible FWD reaches 60 MPH from zero in 7.3 seconds, which gets pumped up to 5.5 seconds with the AWD drivetrain. Depending on the powertrain, the A3 Convertible can manage a combined fuel economy of between 25 and 28 MPG. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 9 striking colors the A3 Convertible comes in really pull you towards itself.
