A Great Drive
Audi TT Roadster
Take your pick from the world of Audi convertibles.
There’s no denying the freedom of a top-down drive: an expanse of blue sky overhead, the wild rush of fresh air, your hair a fantastic mess, the sound of your car’s engine as it erupts into a harmonious symphony. Your senses receive a dose of adrenaline, making for a more dynamic driving experience.
As much as we humans enjoy freedom, we don’t all experience it in the same way. Similarly, despite the common thread that links them, each Audi convertible—the Audi TT Roadster, the Audi R8 Spyder, the Audi A5/S5 Cabriolet and the Audi A3 Cabriolet—is unique. In turn, they offer different perspectives and sensations that can liberate even the most confined of us. Explore your own freedom by exploring world of Audi convertibles.
Audi TT Roadster: The joyride
Driving the Audi TT Roadster is an intimate sensory experience. Its small size and light weight allows you to experience the power of a 2.0-liter turbocharged TFSI® engine, paired with an S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission, and quattro® all-wheel drive for ultra-precision handling. In comparison to the TT Coupe, the retractable soft top of the TT Roadster is the X factor that takes your drive from exhilarating to liberating.
The Audi TT Roadster compounds the sensations emanating from its chassis while exposing you to the elements, delivering the thrilling ride that every convertible driver seeks. At speeds under 31 mph, the acoustic soft top retracts quickly in seconds. The roar of the engine increases as it’s joined by the roar of the wind all around you. The amusement of driving the Audi TT Roadster with the top up has just turned into pure pleasure. With the top down, the Audi TT Roadster elevates your drive into immersive and exhilarating performance.
With all this—the high-tech information displays present in the Audi virtual cockpit and the available 680‑watt Bang & Olufsen® sound system with 3D sound—it’s easy to see why the Audi TT Roadster can turn any ordinary commute into a complete joy ride.
Audi R8 Spyder: A leader of modern performance
With a powerful, naturally aspirated V10 behind you and a performance-tuned suspension in touch with the asphalt, the Audi R8 Spyder combines unparalleled driving dynamics with the “emotion of an open top sports car,” says Stephan Winkelmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. Its V10 engine reflects a tradition of power and performance, sounding a roar that salutes engines of the past. The Monoposto-configured interior reflects the pinnacle of advanced interior technology with the wildly vivid display of information on the Audi virtual cockpit plus MMI® touch at your fingertips allowing you to manage entertainment and navigation systems. With the push of a single button, you become the maestro of your automotive symphony with Audi drive select—a variable control that operates the quattro® all-wheel drive and other drivetrain functions—helping you sync your drive with your state of mind.
With its acoustic folding roof that can be opened or closed at speeds of up to 31 mph, the Audi R8 Spyder and R8 Spyder V10 plus both provide classic top-down driving experiences. You can look up to see the peaks of mountains instead of seeing their base through your windshield. You can hear the true roar of the V10 engine rather than hearing it through a wall of steel. You can sense your speed by the force of the wind on your face as you accelerate instead of just reading a number. The Audi R8 Spyder literally expands your horizons.
Audi A5 Cabriolet:
The top-down tourer
The top-down tourer
Elegance might manifest on the outside, but it starts from within. The masterfully sculpted Audi A5 embodies this inside-out elegance that makes it ready to tour the world in style. Running your fingers across the exterior of an A5 Coupe, Sportback or Cabriolet (or available sport variants), you’ll feel the same bold design lines that produce an aura of elegance and establish its bold presence. With its split-folding rear seatbacks that fold down for increased storage capacity and its open floor concept that presents alluring technology and comfort, the Audi A5 Cabriolet is more than just an elegant car. It’s long-distance comfort, it’s a new perspective, and it’s prepared to make any journey possible, no matter the distance.
Here’s an image. The start and stop of traffic has finally gotten to you. To take the edge off, you bring down the acoustic folding roof of your Audi A5 Cabriolet. The air is a little too brisk, so you turn on the available neck-level heating system to help provide extra warmth, and you approach the perfect temperature. With your 360-degree view, you look around to find those on all sides of you doing a double-take at your Cabriolet. You’re seated in an environment so enjoyable that you forget your frustration and, instead, long for more miles with the top down. Now, the feeling of starting and stopping is almost rhythmic, and you begin to take in your surroundings as you push along.
Audi A3 Cabriolet:
The Audi A3 family is a success story. Since the A3 series was first introduced, all of its generations have reflected the perfect balance of everything Audi has developed. The newest generation of the Audi A3 Cabriolet is no different. From its expressive exterior with the Singleframe® grille and signature available LED headlights to its two available 2.0-liter turbocharged TFSI® engines and S tronic® transmissions, the newest generation of the Audi A3 Cabriolet looks and feels like the ultimate top-down experience.
The Audi A3 Cabriolet is a go-to, a no-brainer. The available quattro® all-wheel drive promotes precision traction to help stimulate more confidence behind the wheel, while the acoustic folding roof can be deployed at speeds of up to 31 mph for top-up or open-air fun. Its chassis was developed using lightweight materials and construction to help improve performance and structural integrity. Compact and light on its feet, the Audi A3 Cabriolet won’t drag you down. Ever. Rather, when the acoustic roof folds down, your senses are heightened, and your spirits are raised. Seated behind the wheel of an Audi A3 Cabriolet, you’re given a top-to-bottom view of whatever life throws at you. It’s the quintessential convertible.
