Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan: 306 hp, 400 Nm, RM348,888 (est)


There’s a new AMG in town and its the Mercedes-AMG A35 Sedan, expanding the current AMG model range with an additional entry level model. The car will appeal to younger target groups who are looking for a high level of performance and comfortable amount of space for passengers and luggage.

“At Mercedes-Benz, we firmly believe in the AMG claim of Driving Performance. There is an undeniable intensity in our cars, having the most advanced and powerful hearts we produce. The Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan is an expansion to the compact car family and the perfect entry into the world of AMG Driving Performance. With our new A 35, we are transporting the history of AMG into modern times,” says Dr Claus Weidner, President & CEO, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.

Also speaking at the launch today, Michael Jopp, Vice President, Sales & Marketing Passenger Cars, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia says, “We are excited to introduce the new Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan to the market. With superior power, exceptional driving dynamics with luxurious appointment and latest technological features, this new sedan is an ideal point of entry to the world of Mercedes-AMG with absolute peak performance.”

The heart of the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan

The 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo boats 306 hp and 400 Nm (from 3,000 rpm), a supremely lively response and an engine sound typical of an AMG. The crankcase is made of high-strength, lightweight die-cast aluminium, which helps to reduce the vehicle weight where it matters most for driving dynamics. Combined with Mercedes-AMG specific 4MATIC all-wheel drive system, the A 35 accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds.

Compact yet sporty.

The sedan is based on a wheelbase of 2,729 millimetres and displays the powerful proportions of a dynamic, and at the same time, compact sedan with a sporty short overhangs at the front and rear. It includes distinguishing AMG design features such as the radiator grille with twin louvres, the AMG Line front apron with flics on the air intakes, a front splitter and silver chrome trim elements.

Dominating the side view are the 19-inch AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels and the illuminated door sill panels with Mercedes-Benz lettering. The two-part tail lamps and the new diffuser insert underscore the rear end that emphasizes width.

Red/black: Characteristic AMG combination

The seats are ARTICO man-made leather with DINAMICA microfibre in black with red contrasting topstitching and red seat belts. Red piping on the microfibre DINAMICA trim element and ventilation nozzles with a red ring add further accents. Another new feature is the distinct AMG center console with touchpad and additional switch for operating ESP® and manual transmission mode.

Great freedom on the inside.

Above-average shoulder, elbow and headroom plus easy access to the rear contribute to increased utility. The Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan has a rear headroom of 944mm and a boot that holds 420 litres and was designed for practical usability. The boot opening is very large with a width of 950 mm and a diagonal of 462 mm between lock and lower edge of the rear window. This allows comfortable loading and unloading, even of larger luggage items.

Listens to words, reacts to gestures.

In the interior, the MBUX multimedia system combines an intuitive operating structure with sporty design. MBUX creates and even closer connection between the vehicle, driver and passengers. Emotionally appealing presentations underline the clear control structure and it features brilliant maximum-resolution 3D graphics. Visually, the two displays under one shared glass cover blend into a Widescreen Cockpit and as a central element consequently emphasize the horizontal orientation of the interior design.

Combines agility and stability

As a new feature in the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs, the new A 35 comes with AMG DYNAMICS. This integrated dynamic handling control system extends the stabilising functions of ESP® with agile interventions according to the driver’s wishes. During dynamic cornering, imperceptible braking intervention on the rear inside wheel creates a defined yawing moment about the vertical axis. The effect: the A 35 steers spontaneously and very precisely.

Variable and agile

Dynamism, agility and performance – these three attributes characterise the standard all-wheel drive of the new A 35. The variable AMG Performance 4MATIC combines the best possible traction with lots of driving fun. The torque distribution is infinitely variable to suit the dynamic handling requirements. The spectrum ranges from front-wheel drive only to a 50:50 percent distribution to the front and rear axles.

The body-in-white

Specific measures to strengthen the front section of the bodyshell form the basis for the precise turn-in ability and the toe and camber stability of the chassis components, even when driving at speed. A so-called “shearing plate” – an aluminium plate underneath the engine – increases the torsional rigidity and bending resistance at the vehicle’s front end. Two additional diagonal braces at the front of the underbody also reduce torsion and increase the stiffness.

Subtly adapts

The AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension features an adaptive adjustable damping system, which allows the driver to switch between three different suspension configurations. The spectrum ranges from comfort-focused to sporty. The system operates fully automatically, adapting the damping forces for each wheel according to the driving situation and road conditions. This happens within milliseconds and is infinitely variable, with a wide spread of damping characteristics. The result is that ride comfort and agility are enhanced in equal measure.
