The 2019 Mercedes-AMG A35 has been revealed ahead of its first public showing at the Paris motor show.
The A35 will act as the entry point to the AMG line-up, it’s powered by a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine producing 225kW and 400Nm.
A seven-speed DCT sends power to AMG’s 4Matic all-wheel drive system which can send up to 50 per cent of the torque to the rear axle.
Performance wise, Mercedes-AMG is quoting a 0 to 100km/h sprint time of 4.7 seconds with a top speed of 250km/h.
The front axle is fitted with new four-piston Monoblock fixed callipers and 350mm brake discs. The rear axle gets one-piston sliding callipers and 330mm discs. The discs are internally ventilated and perforated to better dissipate heat and prevent fading when subjected to harsh use.
The AMG Dynamic Select suite of driving programs which includes Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport + and Individual is standard. Each setting alters the response of the engine and transmission.
It looks considerably more interesting than rivals from Audi and Volkswagen, the exterior features a radiator grille with twin louvres, AMG Line front apron with flics on the air intakes, a front splitter and silver chrome trims on the louvres in the outer air intakes and 18-inch light-alloy wheels.
Down back, there’s a rear apron with a new diffuser insert, roof mounted spoiler and two round tailpipe trims.
Inside, the AMG A35 will feature the new MBUX multimedia system with an AMG specific content. It also gets the new AMG steering wheel with touch-sensitive controls.
The Mercedes-AMG A35 will make its public debut at the Paris motor show in October with European deliveries commencing in January 2019.
