PHS Automotive Malaysia (PHSAM) has launched the all-new Audi A3 Sedan S Line, retailing at a price of RM 331,990. With the launch of the all-new A3, bookings are now also open for the Audi RS 3 with an expected price range of RM 650,000 to RM 750,000.
All-new Audi A3 Sedan S Line
Offered in the S Line guise, the all-new A3 is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 190 hp and 320 Nm. All power is sent to the front wheels via a seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission.
On the outside, the A3 sports “S Line kit”, LED headlamps, and 17-inch alloy wheels. A large “Singleframe” with honeycomb grille dominates the front end of the all-new A3. Behind the Singleframe are controllable cooling-air inlets with two electrically actuated louvre modules. They regulate the airflow in accordance with the driving situation. At the back of the all-new A3 is a rear diffuser that further reduces the drag coefficient.
In the cabin, the all-new A3 S Line features a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment unit that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The interior is upholstered in fine Nappa leather with ‘S’ trim logos, and the driver gets a three-spoke multi-function steering wheel with shift paddles. Driving modes include “efficient”, “dynamic”, “comfort”, “automatic”, and “individual”.
Audi RS 3 open for booking
Audi Malaysia has also announced that the hot version of the A3, the Audi RS 3 is now open for bookings. Pricing is expected to range from RM 650,000 to RM 750,000.
Boasting a five-cylinder turbocharged engine that makes 400 hp and 500 Nm, power is sent to all wheels via a seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission. 0-100 km/h acceleration is done in 3.8 seconds and the RS3 has a reported top speed of 250 km/h. Adding excitement to the RS 3 is a drift mode called “RS Torque Rear”.
Both the all-new Audi A3 Sedan and the Audi RS3 are offered with a three-year free maintenance package and a five-year unlimited mileage warranty. Also included in the price of the cars is a five-year roadside assistance package.
