I am really interested in your experience. Having driven both the sedan and cabrio versions, you are a very valuable source of information in order to help people like me, who are in a dout between the cabrio and the sedan, to make our minds. Could you please help me with those questions... :
It was my impression that the cabrio would be somewhat less "sporty" than the sedan (for example, lesser chasis stiffness just to name a known issue with cabrios) and more a "walking Miss Daisy" car (ok, just joking a bit here). Can you confirm if both versions handle equally, or at least, whether you couldn't feel the difference?
2) Raw Performance.
I assume that being 0.1 slower on 0-100 is not even noticeable in daily usage. Your thoughts?
3) External shape.
Yeah, great concern here. The sedan has an absolutely stunning shape, no matter the angle where you look at it from.
Now you know what happens often with cabrios: the convertible top makes the car's shape to be slighly different of what it should be, and sometimes the results are more than noticeable (Carrera Cabrio comes to my mind for example, much less nice to my eyes than the coupe version).
Can you compare the two versions' external shapes, please ? Was Audi able to make the cabrio look like the sedan ?
Oh, yes. Whatever. Family car also, anyway! Is the luggage room affected due to the convertible top? Is there less luggage room in the cabrio version compared to the sedan?
5) RS seats. Of course.
Do they look nice with the top down? ;-)
I really appreciate your help with this one, man.... It's simply not easy to find someone who had driven both cars!
thanks for your time!
