Used Audi A4 Cabriolet (2001 - 2005) Review

With it's neat lines, understated image and reputation for refinement it's little surprise the A4 Cabriolet has proved such a popular choice. Less brash than a BMW 3-Series, the drop-top version of the A4 features a fabric roof which folds down electrically at the touch of a button.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

With it's neat lines, understated image and reputation for refinement it's little surprise the A4 Cabriolet has proved such a popular choice. Less brash than a BMW 3-Series, the drop-top version of the A4 features a fabric roof which folds down electrically at the touch of a button. Once down wind buffeting is kept to a minimum, while the Cabriolet also drives well with or without the roof up.

Compared to rivals it offers better rear passenger space and with a decent size boot the A4 Cabriolet proves you don't have to sacrifice practicality to have a soft-top.

 Even with the roof down you still have plenty of room in the boot, there is also a lever in the boot to raise the tray for the roof when it is up, to create even more room. Can quite easily seat 4...

 It is a four seater so for a convertible it has the edge over two seater. Surprising what it can carry with the roof down.
