Euromobil Sdn Bhd, the official importer and distributor of the Audi in Malaysia has recently launched the most compact sedan and most affordable member of the Audi line-up in Malaysia, the new A3 Sedan.
Available in two petrol variants, the Audi A3 Sedan 1.4 TFSI is priced at RM179,900 OTR while the 1.8 TFSI quattro is priced at RM240,888 OTR, a pretty good deal for those shopping for luxury on a budget!
The Audi A3 sedan stretches 4456mm long and has a 2637 mm wheelbase. Combined with its 1796mm width and 1416mm height, its proportions are compact yet sporty. The signature Singleframe grille and the Xenon-plus headlights with LED daytime running lights, which form the contour of the lights at the upper and lower edges, are some of the notable highlights in the A3 sedan.
Inside you’ll be able to find a “wraparound” dash design, which incorporates a three-dimensional inlay concept surrounding the driver and front passenger. The MMI operating system has an electronically extending screen, its terminal housed in the console of the centre dashboard. It features a 5.8- inch high resolution display screen and the new MMI controls are conveniently positioned behind the gear shift. On top of that, the vehicle is also equipped with Audi Music Interface iPod connection, a Driver Information System and the Bluetooth mobile phone interface as standard feature.
The base model, 1.4-litre TFSI turbocharged engine produces 122bhp and 200Nm of torque. The sprint from 0-100km/h takes 9.2 seconds and top speed is 205 km/h. Combined fuel economy is 4.9-litres/100 km, equivalent to only 109 grams of CO2 per km.
The larger 1.8-litre TFSI engine on the other hand, generates 180hp and 250 Nm of torque with headline figures of 6.8 seconds 0-100km/h sprint time and a 235km/h top speed. For even more dynamics and stability, the quattro permanent all-wheel drive comes as standard. Combined fuel economy is 6.6-litres/100 km, equivalent to 152 grams of CO2 per km.
Both engines are mated to an S-tronic transmission which provides the driver with immense shifting flexibility and driving pleasure with smooth, dynamic acceleration and virtually no interruption to the power flow. The Audi Drive Select system is fitted as standard in both variants allowing the driver to adjust throttle response, shift points, and the electro-mechanical steering effort. Similar to other Audi models, Audi drive select has four settings that include Auto, Dynamic, Comfort and Individual.
Euromobil also offers a full sport edition in the 1.8 TFSI, which upgrades the A3 sedan with leather covered 3-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel, flat bottomed steering with shift paddles and luxurious Alcantara perforated leather seats, including both interior and exterior S line packages and panoramic glass roof for an additional RM19,800. There are also other luxury options available such as reverse camera and Bang & Olufsen sound system at additional cost.
The new Audi A3 Sedan will be showcased at One Utama Shopping Centre, High Street between 6th- 10th August 2014. You can also test drive the A3 Sedan at Euromobil outlets nationwide.
