Now that Audi has officially debuted the new generation A3 hatchback at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, it’s now time to focus on the other models in the A3 line-up. Just a few days ago, we brought you the first spy shots of the S3 version, and today we’re taking it down a notch by introducing to the future A3 Convertible version via our first rendering of the model.
The convertible version of the A3 will look exactly like its hatchback version, except of course, for its cloth roof. This roof is fitted with hydraulic drive that will open the cloth in just nine seconds. Just like with the hatchback version, the future A3 Convertible will be offered with one TDI and two TFSI engines, with power ranging from 122 to 180 HP. The engines will be mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed S tronic transmission, depending on the version.
The new Audi A3 Convertible will be officially unveiled at the end of 2013.
