Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC to be available in Europe in December

(October 30, 2018) The new Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC is now available for order. The heart of the agile entry-level model into the world of Driving Performance is the newly developed 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine with an output of 306 hp. High driving dynamics are also ensured by the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G dual-clutch transmission, the AMG-specific suspension and the variable AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive.

The limited Edition 1 with progressive exterior and interior design elements offers even more individuality. It is available from market launch for a period of 18 months. The A 35 4MATIC costs 47,528 euro ($54,182), the Edition 1 sells for 55,364 euro ($63,423). Deliveries of both start in December in Europe. No word as to its availability in the U.S., which may get a sedan version of the AMG A 35.

An acceleration time of 4.7 seconds for 0-100 km/h and the top speed of 155 mph (electronically limited) meet the customers' requests for high driving dynamics in the compact segment. The standard-fit AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive varies the torque distribution anywhere from pure front-wheel drive to a 50:50 ratio and thereby combines best possible traction with tremendous driving fun. Five AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive modes enable a wide spread in the vehicle characteristics from comfortable to dynamic.

The exterior with flics on the air intakes of the front apron, AMG-specific radiator grille, front splitter and trim elements in silver chrome embodies the characteristic AMG design.

The optionally available 19-inch wheels and the AMG side sill panelling reinforce the typical AMG look. In the interior of the A 35, the new MBUX multimedia system combines an intuitive operating structure with sporty design. Especially the "Supersport" style with central round rev counter and indicator bars with 3D effect produces a decidedly emotionally appealing visualization of the driving information on the Widescreen Display. A new feature is the distinct AMG centre console with Touchpad and additional switches for operating functions such ESP, manual transmission mode and adaptive adjustable damping.

The optional AMG Aerodynamics Package developed in the wind tunnel improves handling at high speeds. The front apron with larger front splitter and additional high-gloss flics as well as the fixed AMG rear aerofoil increase the downforce. The lateral spoilers around the visual air outlets of the rear apron and the diffuser blade also have a high-gloss black finish.

Likewise optionally available is the AMG Night Package. It underscores the expressive vehicle character with striking black design elements, an effect further boosted by the heat-insulating dark tinted windows aft of the B-pillar.
