2008 Audi A4 Cabriolet vs. Its Competition

2008 Audi A4 2.0T
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

Among four-seat convertibles, the Mercedes-Benz CLK Cabriolet also sports a folding canvas roof and an array of available engines, but it's costlier than the Audi A4 Cabriolet.

The BMW 3-Series Convertible, Volvo C70, and Volkswagen Eos all seat four passengers and have folding metal hardtops.

The Volkswagen Eos has been singled out by Consumer Reports as a good value in the class, and TheCarConnection.com's editors agree that it's a strong value among these convertibles.

Quick Specs
7.8
The 2008 Audi A4 Cabriolet doesn’t charge ahead like a Corvette, but its lush, four-seat cabin makes it a good choice for more relaxed drivers.
8.2
The 2009 Volkswagen Eos isn't sexy, and it's one of the most practical choices among convertibles and there's a lot to like.
8.6
The 2008 BMW 3-Series sedan has the best overall driving experience in its class and remains the gold standard among mid-size sport sedans.
8.2
The 2008 Volvo C70 feels light and gets lighter with the top down -- just don’t plan on taking many friends or much cargo along for the ride.
