Audi Cabriolet 3.2 V6 (2007)

by John Ewing,reviewed June 2007

Hand on heart – I took no pleasure from driving around, sunny day, roof down, in the smart Audi Cabriolet. Well, maybe a little.

I can report that the Audi’s 3.2-litre, direct-injection V6 delivers lively performance.

The Multitronic CVT gearbox works seamlessly, allowing the engine to give its best. There’s a manual mode with seven preset ratios and steering wheel paddle shifters, ideal for sportier driving.

The Audi proves surefooted over twisty roads, with well-weighted, responsive steering and good grip.

The electro-hydraulic roof folds smartly (21 secs) and can be operated when driving at up to 30 km/h.

Rear passengers may struggle for leg space and roof folding operations can also deliver them a ‘clonk’ on the head from one of the roof bars.

Build quality is excellent.
