Published Mar 4, 2024


Following the launch of the A4 and S4 Black Editions late last year, Audi’s special edition frenzy continues with an array of unique A3, S3, Q2 and Q3 models that are now on sale in Mzansi.

The Audi Q2 and A3 will be available in both Urban Edition and Black Edition flavours, with the latter also applied to S3 and Q3 models.

Black Edition Audi A5 and Q5 variants are set to follow later in the year.

Audi’s thinking, with these editions, is to bundle together some of the most popular options in order to make it easier for you to choose the right Audi, but this “package deal” approach no doubt makes life at the factory quite a bit easier too.

Let’s take a closer look at what these new editions have to offer.

The Audi A3 35 TFSI (110kW) Urban Edition is now available at R737,800 in five-door Sportback guise and R752,800 as a sedan. That, to put it into context, is a R36,000 premium over the base A3 and R16,000 more than the S-Line.

Feature highlights include a sunroof, dual-zone climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels, full LED headlights and rear park distance control.

The A3 35 TFSI Black Edition is priced between R790,500 (Sportback) and R805,500 (Sedan) and promises enhanced style in the form of a Black exterior styling package, including 18-inch alloy wheels, S Line exterior and interior embellishments, leather seats, contour ambient lights and a sports steering wheel.

Standard features include the aforementioned panoramic roof, Parking Aid Plus and Comfort Package with electric tailgate and electric adjustment and heating for the front seats.

Additionally the Q3 Black Edition models gain 19-inch alloy wheels as well as sports seats and black headlining.

And that’s the new Audi special edition models in a nutshell.

Audi’s sales head Asif Hoosen said the process of creating this special edition collection began with understanding which styling details and comfort features Audi’s customers found the most desirable.

“While our vehicles are an important part of what Audi customers desire, it was also important to us to ensure that the financial offers around these vehicles provide as much value for our customers as the vehicles themselves. That’s where the specially crafted Audi Assured offers for these models are really compelling,” Hoosen added.
