Audi A3 Carbon Edition launched in Malaysia

The Audi A3 Carbon Edition is now available in Malaysia but only 30 units are planned for production. All of them are based on the A3 1.4 TFSI model and come with an individually numbered plaque and have a starting price of RM194,333 whereas the standard model begins locally from RM179,900. As you can see, the premium sedan gets a Glacier White exterior paint scheme which has been combined with a black styling package as well as a glossy black look for the front spoiler, rear apron and side skirts.

It can also be visually distinguished thanks to the carbon fiber mirrors and boot lid spoiler as well as five-arm rotor 18-inch alloy wheels whereas inside the cabin it gets sports seats wrapped around in a combination of leather and Alcantara. As standard, the Audi A3 Carbon Edition comes equipped with front and rear parking sensors and keyless entry.

The aforementioned 1.4 TFSI hasn’t gone through any changes, so it continues to produce 122 hp and 200 Nm of torque sent to the front axle through a 7-speed S dual-clutch gearbox which enables the Audi A3 Carbon Edition to hit 100 km/h from a standstill in 9.3 seconds before topping out at 205 km/h.
