The 2019 Mercedes-AMG A35 4Matic Sedan has been revealed ahead of a local arrival in the fourth quarter of this year.
Power comes from the same 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine found in the hatch which produces 225kW and 400Nm. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission sends power to all corners through the 4Matic all-wheel drive system.
The torque distribution is infinitely variable to suit the driving situation. The spectrum ranges from front-wheel drive only to a 50:50 distribution to the front and rear axles.
In a straight line, the A35 Sedan can sprint from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds on its way to an electronically limited 250km/h.
Stopping power comes from 350mm discs with four-piston calipers up front and 330mm discs with one-piston calipers at the rear.
Five AMG drive modes are included: Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Individual. Each mode changes the response of the engine and transmission to match the driving situation.
External design highlights include a radiator grille with twin louvres, an AMG Line front apron with flics on the air intakes, two-part tail lamps, new diffuser insert, twin exhaust pipes and 18-inch alloy wheels.
On the inside, things look identical to the hatch which means the new twin-screen the new MBUX multimedia system as standard. Other interior features include AMG sports seats up front, leather trim and the latest AMG steering wheel.
The A35 Sedan rides on the same 2729mm wheelbase as the hatch variant, however, it offers 420 litres of boot space. Mercedes-AMG says the boot opening is 950mm wide.
Australian specifications and pricing will be announced closer to the A35’s local launch in the fourth quarter of 2019.
