Audi A3 Overview
The third generation Audi A3 sedan facelift was officially introduced by Euromobil Malaysia back in 2019, replacing the outgoing 2014 Audi A3 that went through a couple of different iterations since its first introduction.
Being part of the Volkswagen Group, the Audi A3 shares the same MQB (Modular Transversal Toolkit) Platform that also underpins the Volkswagen Golf. The highly versatile modular platform allows manufacturer under the VW group to apply the same transverse, front-engine, front-wheel-drive layout (or optional four-wheel-drive) on different vehicles ranging from superminis to mid-size SUVs under the VW group.
In other markets, the multifaceted Audi A3 is available in different body styles like the A3 Sportback, A3 2-door, A3 Cabriolet, A3 Sportback e-Tron, and not to mention the performance variant like the S3 and the RS3. Unfortunately for us in Malaysia, the 1.4 TFSI sedan will be the sole variant on offer officially by Euromobil Malaysia with no Quattro option available.
Directly imported from Germany with a price tag of RM 231,359.80 (OTR without insurance), the Audi A3 sedan is priced dangerously close to the compact executives like the BMW 3 Series. Competitions like the Mercedes A Class sedan and the new BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe are both cheaper in comparison.
