KUALA LUMPUR, 7 October 2022 –PHS Automotive Malaysia (PHSAM) today launched the second generation of an Audi success story – the A3 Sedan, for the Malaysian market. Redefining the compact luxury class yet again, the Audi A3 Sedan combines a striking new design language with advanced technologies, and promises an even more engaging driving experience.

Inside, its beautifully executed interior – more spacious than before, seamlessly marries luxury and cutting-edge technology, with the likes of the Audi virtual cockpit, 10.1-inch MMI navigation plus touch display and Audi connect plus services as standard inclusions.

Powerful and elegant: The exterior

With a more muscular and sculpted design, the A3 Sedan generates a completely new presence.The front is dominated by a large Singleframe with honeycomb grille that is flanked by striking headlights.

The body line on the Sedan extends up to the rear bumper, which emphasises its length and gives the rear an elegant appearance. The concave surface under the broad body shoulder further accentuates the quattro blisters and the sill. This creates an intensive play of light and shadow. The roof line slopes down from the B-pillar dynamically – just like on a coupé.

Streamlined body

Its streamlined body, paired with a higher rear end and a large diffuser contributes to reduced drag coefficient values, which in turn reduces C02 emissions and fuel.

The A3 Sedan also features controllable cooling-air inlet with two electrically actuated louvre modules behind the Singleframe. They regulate the flow of air intelligently and according to the driving situation. In addition, the panelled underbody, the exterior mirrors with improved aerodynamics, and the active brake cooling reduces air resistance.
