While we wait for the arrival of the new A35 hatchback on local soil, Mercedes-AMG has now revealed the A35 Sedan. See details below.
While exact launch timing for the A35 hatchback has yet to be confirmed, the A-Class Sedan will arrive locally in Q4 of 2019 and will be followed by the A35 sedan in Q1 2020. The Mercedes-AMG A35 sedan adds the practicality of a larger boot and it employs the same twin-scroll turbocharged 2.0-litre engine found in its A35 hatchback sibling, offering 225 kW and 400 Nm of torque. Equipped with 4Matic all-wheel drive and a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, the Mercedes-AMG A35 Sedan will sprint from zero to 100 kph in 4.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 250 kph.
An AMG suspension system further ensures that the A35 Sedan will deliver dynamically too but customers can also opt for AMG Ride Control suspension which includes an adaptive adjustable damper system. The A35 Sedan rides on 18-inch light alloy wheels with a twin spoke design as standard while 19-inch wheels are optional.
"Following the very successful launch of the hatchback model, things are moving along dynamically in the compact class segment at AMG. Sport saloons are the origin of Mercedes-AMG and part of the brand's core. With our new A 35, we are transporting this history into modern times in the form of a very attractive model that serves as a point of entry into the world of AMG and also appeals to new customer groups" said Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG.
The A35 Sedan is thoroughly modern and comes equipped with Merc's latest MBUX multimedia system.
The AMG A35 Sedan is equipped with the latest MBUX multimedia system which made its debut in the new A-Class and includes a Widescreen Cockpit with 2 screens under a single glass cover. Using artificial intelligence, the system can respond to a wide range of sentences/commands relating to the infotainment and car functions using the words “Hey Mercedes”.
A new-generation flat-bottomed steering wheel is fitted with contrasting red stitching and bound in perforated leather. Integrated steering wheel controls allow the driver to easily interact with the infotainment system and digital instrument cluster. An AMG Performance steering wheel is optional.
The seats are covered in Artico man-made leather with Dinamica microfibre in black/neva grey with red contrasting top stitching and red seat belts for a sportier look. Red piping is also seen on the Dinamica trim and air vents.
Also, when equipped with the Keyless-Go comfort package with Hands-Free Access, you can open the boot automatically by swiping your foot under the rear bumper. The boot aperture is wide at 950 mm making it easier to load items into the boot with a claimed capacity of 420 litres.
As is expected, the AMG A35 Sedan will be offered with a wide range of optional equipment and packages to suit your tastes.
We will keep you updated as soon as local specification and pricing details are available.
