Audi Cabriolet

Can you really go wrong with solid German engineering? It looks as though you cannot – the Audi Cabriolet has classic muted styling, and a high level of sophistication that would seem to discount this vehicle as a fun car to drive. Well, don't judge a book by its cover – the Audi Cabriolet, which hit the U.S. market in 1994, brought with it a solid, stylish, and sophisticated automobile. This two-door convertible was a hoot to drive, not to mention the quality with which it was made has allowed it to hold up well over the years. Drivers are still receiving positive feedback on this little gem today. The Cabriolet was based on an Audi 90 platform, with a wheelbase about two inches shorter. It is said to seat four, although the passengers in the back might want to argue otherwise. The convertible top folds back under the rear seat out of sight, which makes it very photogenic. Everyone knows that convertibles are meant for enjoying the summer air, yet women especially would argue that the wind effect could be somewhat annoying. Audi attempted to combat this problem by offered a noise-reducing windscreen that could be put up when the backseat was unoccupied. Audi was also successful in designing the Cabriolet to be amazingly quiet when the top was up, which is remarkably a task that many convertibles find hard to accomplish. The inside did lack some of the features that Audi drivers had become accustomed to, and yet the Cabriolet was still comfortably luxurious. Perhaps this is why the Cabriolet was never very popular in the United States. Nevertheless, if should have been given that for a while, leather seats and trim were standard, as were power mirrors, power locks and windows, and air conditioning. Special packages added such features as heated locks and seats (to keep your bum toasty in the winter wind), sports seats, and wood trim.
