Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the new Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC, the most powerful variant of the small German model.
Under the hood is a new four-cylinder engine, 2,000 cc, which develops 306 horsepower and a maximum torque of 400 Nm. Dynamic performance is also due to AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G dual-clutch transmission, AMG suspension and AMG Performance 4MATIC adaptive integral traction.
The Mercedes-AMG A 35 A 4Matic takes 4.7 seconds to reach 100 km / h, and the maximum speed is limited to 250 km / h.
All-wheel drive adaptive AMG Performance 4Matic delivers full power to the front or front wheels on the front and rear axles.
On the outside, the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC has a massive spoiler air intake, a specific radiator grille and chrome elements typical of the AMG design. Wheels can also be 19 inches (contracost), and inside we find the new MBUX infotainment system. A new element is the AMG centre console with touchpad and function buttons such as ESP, manual transmission or adaptive suspension.
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 a sporty design. Especially the ‘Supersport’ style with central round rev counter and indicator bars with 3D effect produce 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.
