Audi A4 Cabriolet: First pictures of the new model

Audi A4 Cabriolet
Fourtitude has some pictures of the new Audi A4 Cabriolet which will also be of the main attractions at the Frankfurt Motor Show next week. Besides the Audi Q7 of course!
An enjoyable and sporty driving experience, superior and complex technology, classic and exciting styling, and luxury that even satisfies the demands made in the luxury class: Audi is presenting the new generation of a car that has become a classic – the A4 Cabriolet.

The car’s technology lives up to the promise made by its new styling: the A4 Cabriolet is being launched with four engines, three of which are being offered for the Audi A4 Cabriolet for the very first time. FSI and turbo FSI technology represent the most advanced state of the art for petrol engines, as do the ultramodern piezo injectors in the three-litre TDI, which is already familiar from the A4, A6 and A8. The sporty yet comfortable dynamic suspension converts the power delivered by these units into sheer driving pleasure – on every bend, on every mile of the journey.

Innovative and highly sophisticated technologies are an integral part of practically all vehicle areas and components: the optional xenon headlights, with dynamic cornering lights as an option, are proof of this, as indeed is quattro permanent four-wheel drive.

Almost all convertibles look good with the top down, but only a few are equally as attractive with the top up. The Audi A4 Cabriolet cuts an extremely fine figure both open and closed. The fully automatic, electro-hydraulic hood can be operated when driving at a speed of up to 30 km/h – an advantageous feature that is not to be underestimated in the city, for example, where it is not always possible to stop suddenly. Thanks to its good thermal insulation and glass rear window, the Audi A4 Cabriolet can also be used without restriction in the winter. But the A4 Cabriolet is not only a car for all seasons because of its outstanding insulation – quattro permanent four-wheel drive technology additionally improves the car’s safety and handling.
