The main competitors are the likes of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Saloon and BMW 2 Series. As the sportiest of the models, the A3 Saloon has a wrap-around cockpit interior. Its lower seating position makes it unique. It also has a sleeker roofline and larger boot space than the other A3 body types.

Audi has also minimised the vibrations typically found when losing the hard top, offering comfortable and safe handling. Therefore, the Audi A3 Cabriolet demonstrates a premium car of its class.
