The 2014 Audi A3 Cabrio has been spied undergoing testing in northern Europe.

Caught wearing heavy camouflage, the model will have an evolutionary design that closely mirrors the sedan and hatchback. However, the cabriolet will feature longer front doors, a retractable soft top and unique bodywork aft the A-pillar.

Engine options will likely carryover from the standard model, so expect choices to include:

  • 1.8 TFSI with 180 HP (132 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque
  • 2.0 TDI with 150 HP (110 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque
  • 2.0 TDI with 184 HP (135 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque

There could also be a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 300 HP (221 kW) in the S3.  The RS3, on the other hand, is expected to have a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine with 380-400 HP (279-294 kW).
