It’s good to see Saab and Audi agreeing one more than just the usefulness of solar cells in the roof:
Prestige brand Audi has stated its commitment to traditional fabric hoods. Both the forthcoming A3 drop-top and the next-generation A4 convertible will use a traditional rag-top design.
Bosses at the firm are convinced that cabrios with the latest cloth hoods will remain every bit as popular in the future.
I really hope Saab keep the ragtop, which it looks like they will for the time being. I’ve not seen a really good looking hardtop convertible yet. If you’re going to have a convertible, then make it look like one. And the new generation of soft-tops are so well insulated that they’re just as comfortable.
That article was all about convertible prices in the UK, and how they drop in the winter.
Poor weather in the UK pushing prices down? Must be kid’s stuff to get a bargain ragtop 80% of the year!!

It’s good to see Saab spending some of their ad money in the blogospere as well as in the MSM.
Autoblog are a beneficiary of the new 2008 Saab 9-3 ad campaign, as I found when I was looking (fruitlessly) for attractive Japanese cars.
