Malaysian Audi distributor Euromobil has starting teasing two upcoming models – the Audi A3 Sedan and the Audi A8 Facelift. Promoters with iPads were inviting interested parties to register for updates at the Audi BSC Roadshow happening this week at Bangsar Shopping Centre.
The Audi A3 Sedan is set to come in two variants – a front wheel drive 1.4 TFSI and a 1.8 TFSI with quattro all-wheel-drive. The car is expected to be launched before the end of June 2014.
The Audi A3 1.4 TFSI in its highest tune is powered by a 140 PS, 240 Nm 1.4 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, mated to a seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission. 0-100 km/h acceleration time is 8.3 seconds. Word is that it could be priced under RM200k. There is a lower 1.4 TFSI tune available with 122 PS and 200 Nm – we’re not sure which one Malaysia will get.
As for the Audi A3 1.8 TFSI quattro, it’s expected to compete against the new Mercedes-Benz CLA 200 in terms of pricing. The 1.8 TFSI engine does 180 PS and 250 Nm of torque, mated to a seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission. The 0-100 km/h sprint is done in 7.2 seconds.
As for the A8 facelift, we hear it will continue to be available as a 3.0 TFSI quattro, but will now get Audi Matrix LED headlamps as standard issue. Pricing will be higher than the pre-facelift model’s RM659k price tag because of higher kit levels. We’re expecting it to be launched before the end of May 2014.
