Mercedes-AMG® A35

April 2nd, 2019 by

The new A35 sedan will be Mercedes-AMG®’s lowest priced AMG® model! 

It has a turbocharged inline-four with 302 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission, and a variable all-wheel-drive system.

There are five driving modes; of them, the Sport+ and Slippery modes are new to the AMG®. Sport+, as the name implies, increases responsiveness for maximum performance, while Slippery is for enhanced stability, implementing a flat torque curve, smoother responses, and reduced power. The A35 has a different suspension setup than the regular A-class with optional adjustable dampers, a specially tuned variable-ratio steering rack, and larger vented disc brakes (four-piston calipers with 13.8-inch discs in front, single-piston calipers with 13.0-inch discs in back). It also gets the AMG® Dynamics system that debuted on the updated C 63, which is enhanced stability control and brake-based torque-vectoring system that works in conjunction with the driving modes.

AMG® CEO Tobias Moers says the A35 will appeal to new kinds of customers and serve as “an entry point into the world of AMG®.” Pricing hasn’t been announced, The A35 sedan will be quickly followed by a CLA35—yes, there will be nearly identical AMG® versions of the A-class and the CLA—as well as a GLA35 once the next-gen version of the standard GLA debuts. The existence of these new lower-tier four-cylinder compact AMG®s leaves room for the upcoming A45, CLA 45, and GLA 45 to get even crazier: The range-topping A45 S will get over 415 horsepower from a 2.0-liter turbo four and an advanced all-wheel-drive system with a rear-drive Drift mode.

The U.S.-bound A35 sedan has now been revealed ahead of its in-person debut at the New York auto show this April, and as we expected, it’s basically identical to its hatchback sibling.
