1996 Audi Cabriolet Overview

An open-topped carriage, or cabriolet, gets a modern update with the 1996 Audi Cabriolet. Essentially an Audi 90 that blew its top, the Cabriolet convertible is a compact car with high-end aspirations.

The only changes in 1996 are a new radio, new alloy wheels, and some transmission revisions. The Cabriolet gets its power from a 2.8-liter, 172-hp V6 engine and 4-speed automatic with Sport mode. To the chagrin of some drivers, there is no manual offered. On the outside, the Cabriolet is sleek and elegant, yet solidly built in the Audi style. Its power top folds back behind the rear seat and stowns beneath a hard cover. An optional windscreen for the rear seat (when not occupied) helps cut down on wind noise. Standard features include leather seats and trim, power mirrors, power windows and locks, and a security system. In terms of safety, along with dual front airbags and ABS brakes, the seats have built-in rollover protection.

Style and solidity are the biggest draws for 1996 Cabriolet owners. Because few sold in the U.S., the car is a rare sight on the road, lending it a sense of uniqueness that owners like. Good handling and a quiet ride are also plusses. However, most drivers wish it had a bit more power and came with a manual transmission for better performance. An unflattering plastic rear window, high maintenance costs, and expensive parts are other drawbacks to the Audi Cabriolet.
