The variable top compartment of the A4 Cabriolet allows the size of the luggage compartment to be increased significantly when the hood is closed. The hood compartment can be folded upwards in a single action to provide 11.12 cu. ft. of luggage space for journeys into the sun. Even when the hood compartment is folded down to stow the soft top, and protect it from dust, 8.69 cu. ft. still provide sufficient storage space.
