The facelifted Audi A3 was introduced locally at the end of March. Power comes from 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 150 hp and 250 Nm of torque; the engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Highlights of the facelifted model include a redesigned front and rear end, updated LED headlights and LED taillights with dynamic turn signals. 18-inch wheels are offered as standard. Interior highlights include a larger (7.0-inch) MMI Navigation Plus infotainment unit and 12.3-inch Audi Virtual Cockpit. A Dual-Zone air-conditioning system is also offered as standard.

The second-generation Audi A5 Sportback also entered the Malaysian market at the tail end of March. Highlights of the new model include sharp-looking Full-LED headlights and trapezoidal LED taillights. The 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder produces 252 hp and 370 Nm and is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Adaptive dampers and 19-inch alloy wheels feature as standard.

On the inside, much of the A5 Sportback’s dashboard architecture is identical to the A4 sedan, the 8.3-inch free-standing MMI Navigation Plus screen is complemented by a 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit screen that relays all important driving information. Triple-zone climate control and a ten-speaker audio system are included as standard.
