Audi A3 Cabriolet drivers to be given parking assistance

Parking just got easier for drivers of the new Audi A3 Carbiolet, as all models now have the option of coming with a new parallel park assist system.

The technology comprises ultrasonic sensors which can seek out parking spaces, alert the driver to the window of opportunity availability via a Driver Information System (DIS) and then automatically steer the car into the space.

For the privilege of being able to get themselves into a tight spot drivers will have to pay £725 for their Sport and S line versions of the A3 Cabriolet to be fitted with the parallel park assist system, while standard model drivers will have to pay £925 to have DIS and the parallel park assist system installed.

However, standard spec drivers will have alloy wheels, semi-automatic hood operation, air conditioning, powered windows and mirrors and a CD audio system as a matter of course.

Sport and S line models, meanwhile, will come with a fully automatic acoustic hood and wind deflector.

Audis have proved popular in the UK in recent years, and the manufacturer broke the 100,000 sales barrier in 2007.
