The acclaimed Audi multitronic continuously variable transmission (CVT) will also be available for the 1.8 T. In contrast to most conventional automatic rivals, the unique Audi CVT system has little or no effect on performance (9.3 seconds/ 136mph), and no impact whatsoever on fuel consumption, while at the same time assisting its impressively low emissions.

Standard equipment for all A4 Cabriolet models includes 16-inch ‘5-arm Aero’ alloy wheels, an electrically operated hood, remote control central locking activating an alarm with interior microwave protection, electronic climate control, a leather 4-spoke multifunction steering wheel and a Concert audio system with single CD player. An automatic roll-over protection system also adds to the extensive list of safety features already fitted to A4 saloon and Avant models.

Sport versions gain striking 17-inch ‘5-spoke star’ alloy wheels with 235/45 R17 tyres, sports suspension, a sports leather steering wheel and sports seats with electric lumbar support adjustment.

The new A4 Cabriolet range takes over from the instantly recognisable original which began production ten years ago, a car that is still widely regarded as a distinct Audi Milestone. The all new current car with its wider range of power units its almost certain to sell in greater numbers in the UK than anywhere in the world, just as its predecessor did until production ceased in 1999.
