Reviewers found the plush interior of the 2008 Audi A4 superior to the competition, but with the top up, things can get a bit cramped.
ForbesAutos reports that though it’s billed as a five-seater, the 2008 Audi A4 Cabriolet really suits only four—and it’s still a squeeze. “Front-seat occupants in the Audi A4 Cabriolet will find ample room; backseat space is at a premium,” they observe. ConsumerGuide agrees that front seats are "firm and comfortable," but calls the backseat "cramped." ConsumerGuide isn't impressed with storage, either, pointing out that the "trunk shrinks from small to tiny with the top down."
Assembly quality and choice of materials continue to be a strong point. Edmunds agrees, noting the "build and material quality is superlative” and remarking the "gauges offer the sort of soothing lighting you'd find in a chic late-night bistro." ConsumerGuide mentions the 2008 Audi A4 Cabriolet delivers "impressively little body quiver typical of convertibles."
Wind noise is always a concern with convertibles, but reviewers are not overly critical of the Audi A4 Cabriolet. Kelley Blue Book suggests putting the "windows up and the optional wind blocker in place" when the top is down to turn the cabin into a "still, comfortable place to enjoy the passing scenery." ConsumerGuide reports only "modest top-up wind noise."
