Product Overview

Audi A4 B6 (Type 8H) Cabriolet is a compact executive convertible in production from 2001 to 2005. It was available with a range of inline-4 and V6 engines that displaced 1.8 to 3.0 liters.
Based on the B6 platform, the Cabriolet is rather awkward in styling, especially when its soft top is up. This is not uncommon among convertibles based on sedans; pure convertibles and those based on coupes tend to have proportions that suit the convertible body style better.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Audi A4 B6 comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners. This provides the best cornering performance and tunability, at the expense of cost and a little bit of durability.
