Nithyanandh K,

As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

While its Indian launch is just a couple of months away, the Audi A3 Sedan made its Malaysian debut at an outdoor cinema event held at Starlight Cinema in Bukit Kiara near Kuala Lampur.
