Audi Malaysia has just introduced a limited edition Audi A3 Carbon Edition into the Malaysian market. Based on the Audi A3 1.4 TFSI, this single-batch Audi A3 Carbon Edition is fully kitted in specially selected Audi Genuine Accessories for an even more stylishly sporty sedan.
Available only in Glacier White, the exterior of the A3 Carbon Edition features the Audi exclusive black styling package and the addition of a glossy black front spoiler, with matching rear apron and side sills for a contrastingly understated look all throughout.
To ramp up the visual flair, the 17-inch cast aluminium rims on a standard Audi A3 1.4 TFSI have been replaced with sporty 18-inch matte black 5-arm rotor design rims along with carbon exterior mirror housings and a carbon tailgate spoiler that reinforce its sporting intentions.
Inside the cabin, the Audi A3 Carbon Edition also sees the inclusion of Alcantara and leather combination sport seats, front + rear parking aid and comfort key as standard, providing a combination of premium finishing, convenience and technology all in one. To cap it all off, each of these sedans will also feature an individually numbered stainless steel plaque on the centre console, underlining its ‘coveted status and innate rarity.’
The limited edition Audi A3 Carbon Edition comes from a solid pedigree, with the Audi A3 having won the World Car of the Year 2014, the same year it was introduced into Malaysia. With a long wheelbase, and short overhangs for a total length of 4,460mm, the A3’s body features an intelligent multi-material construction making it ultra-lightweight at just 1,310 kg, giving it the capacity for dynamic performance and class-leading space in an attractive package.
Under the hood, the 1.4 TFSI engine is mated with a 7-speed S tronic transmission that develops a total of 125 hp and 200 Nm of torque between 1,400 to 4,000 rpm. Despite its modest engine capacity, this compact sedan is able to accelerate from 0 – 100km/h in 9.3 seconds en route to a top speed of 212km/h. Of course, fuel efficiency is something that comes standard in an Audi, so the A3 1.4 TFSI has a fuel consumption of just4.9 litres/100km and a combined CO2 rating emission of just 114g/km.
Each A3 Carbon Edition comes equipped with a smorgasbord of electronic features to ensure an efficient and safe driving experience, including a start/stop system with energy recuperation, Electronic Stabilisation Control (ESC) consisting of Traction Control (ASR), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and a 7 airbag system. Last, but certainly not least, the Audi A3 Carbon Edition comes equipped with an MMI radio with MMI control panel features a 5.8” colour display along with a 10 loudspeaker Audi sound system.
The exclusive Audi A3 Carbon Edition is only available in a limited run of just 30 units, retailing at only RM194, 333. So what are you waiting for? Head down to your nearest Audi showrooms to make your bookings today!
