The ASC (Hyundai-Padu Sedia), also known as Superior Class or Jasmine Coach, is the refurbished version of the original Hyundai ASC. The Letter of Acceptance (LOA) of the refurbishment of 75 coaches was issued by the Ministry of Transport (MOT) on 19 October 2015 to Padu Sedia Sdn Bhd, and the first batch of 8 coaches was launched on 28 July 2018. It consists of 60 seats in a fixed forward and reverse direction, in a 2+2 configuration.

Links attached are no longer hosted on Google Drive as RailTravel Station is too often confused with the timetable provider instead of KTM. Should the links be down, it is on KTM’s servers and not on mine.
Link yang dilampirkan tiada lagi di dapati di Google Drive, di atas sebab RailTravel Station terlalu kerap memuatnaik jadual perjalanan keretapi berbanding KTM. Sekiranya link tiada lagi berfungsi, ia kemungkinan berpunca dari khidmat jaringan KTM dan bukan berpunca dari website RailTravel Station.
