The new cabrio retains many of the coupe’s striking lines including the creases on the hood. Clean headlight lines serve to complement the wide grille, but it is the silver Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead-like A-pillars that make the cabriolet stand out by defining the only solid structure above the main body on the vehicle. Unlike the BMW 4 Series convertible
, the A5 Cabrio and S5 Cabrio feature a fabric soft top that’s sure to help cut down on weight but does a worse job of keeping the outside elements from permeating through the fabric. Acoustic insulation should help remedy some of the added noise. Aside from weight, another benefit of the top is a folding time of 15 seconds after the one touch down button is pressed at a max speed of 31 mph.
