Audi's quickest ever soft-top will hit the UK next spring.
5 September 2003

The S4 cabriolet is powered by the same 340bhp 4.2-litre V8 as the saloon and estate S4 and will be priced at just under £40,000. It makes its first public appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The extra weight of the roof mechanism means the 0-62mph time rises slightly compared with the saloon, from 5.6 to 5.9 seconds, but the top speed is still an electronically limited 155mph.
Audi will open the order book early next year on its first four-wheel-drive soft-top, with both six-speed manual and Tiptronic-style transmission on offer.

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
