The new A 35 4MATIC expands the AMG model range by an attractive entry-level model. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine generates an output of 225 kW (306 hp) and produces a peak torque of 400 Nm. An acceleration time of 4.7 seconds for 0-100 km/h and the top speed of 250 km/h (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.
An eye-catcher inside and out
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 visualisation 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.
Attractive packages as optional equipment
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.
Edition 1 – for even more individuality
The Edition 1 provides additional exclusivity and dynamics already at the market launch: Inside and out, it compels with choice details and is limited to 18 months. The equipment features include the AMG Aerodynamics Package and the AMG Night Package. The denim blue paint finish and the “tech gold” accents on the side mirror housings and the lower sections of the doors produce an especially exclusive look. The 19-inch Livorno wheels with high-sheen finish feature a wheel cover with centre-lock look and also sport that same “tech gold” hue. The AMG Performance seats upholstered with black/grey ARTICO/DINAMICA featuring blue accents and medium-grey contrasting topstitching as well as the AMG Performance steering wheel emphasise the sportiness in the interior. The Edition 1 also comes with heated seats and ambient lighting as standard. Aluminium trim elements and an ‘Edition’ badge on the steering wheel add visual highlights in the interior.
