While no retail numbers have been announced, Audi did confirm the latest generation A3 drop-top will be offered for sale in North America and it goes without saying that pricing will be somewhere south of the $43,000 A5 convertible.
Larger than the last generation model with more passenger and cargo room it’s now better suited to the North American marketplace.
A fully automatic soft-top includes a glass rear window. The top comes in black as a standard color, while an upgraded top with better sound deadening will be offered in black, gray and brown.
While a selection of engines will be offered in Europe, expect the standard powerplant on this side of the Atlantic to be a new 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder making 180 hp. A 300 hp S3 Cabriolet is likely to follow.
