1995 Audi Cabriolet Review

A fun convertible with a dash of luxury.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 1995 Audi Cabriolet is a compact convertible that is built off of the Audi 90 sedan design. The basic frame of the 90 is cut down into a more couple-like design. While there is a noticeable difference between the Cabriolet and the 90, the two vehicles do share a lot of design aesthetics. The Cabriolet is designed to be a fun, little convertible, with very similar equipment and performance to the Audi 90.

The main sticking point drivers are likely to find with the Cabriolet is the price. The Audi 90 has more options and a much lower price tag. Since the designs are otherwise very similar, the only real advantage to the Cabriolet is that it is a convertible. However, this feature alone might be enough for some drivers. The Audi Cabriolet offers an experience similar to an Audi 90, with a few choice optional features and the exhilaration of driving with the top down. It might not be the best value in the Audi lineup, but it is one of the most enjoyable options.

What's New

The 1995 Audi Cabriolet does not have any changes from the previous year’s model.

Exterior

The Audi Cabriolet is based on the Audi 90 design in most regards. However, the Cabriolet is a noticeably smaller vehicle, with a convertible design based on a coupe-style body. The styling is fairly angular and blocky, with a very similar aesthetic to the Audi 90. The two vehicles are visually different, but similar enough that the Cabriolet’s use of the 90’s basic design is noticeable to most drivers.

Interior

The Audi Cabriolet has a somewhat smaller interior than the Audi 90, which it is based off of. Air-conditioning, cruise control, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, a leather trim steering wheel, an anti-theft alarm system, leather seating, an AM/FM radio, and a cassette player are standard features. Heated seats are available as an optional feature.

Performance & Handling

The Audi Cabriolet has good overall handling and performance. The 2.8-liter, six-cylinder engine is the same one used on the Audi 90 and Audi A6. The Audi Cabriolet has good acceleration and a respectable top speed. The Audi Cabriolet also offers good handling and maneuverability, which goes well with the small body size.

Safety

Dual-front airbags and four-wheel anti-lock brakes are standard features on the 1995 Audi Cabriolet. Having both of these features standard is somewhat unusual for a convertible, which works in the Cabriolet’s favor.

Audi 90 2.8-liter six-cylinder, five-speed automatic: 16/24 mpg city/highway
