The Mercedes-AMG CLA35 Coupe AMG 4Matic Premium Plus stands out as the all-new model for the AMG range – a practical and supremely engaging four-door coupe.
The design of this second-generation CLA displays a new era for one of Mercedes-Benz’s fastest small four-door coupe.
Drive is sent through a 7-speed dual-clutch-transmission to the road through Mercedes’ 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system, allowing a zero to 100 km/h sprint in just 4.9 seconds.
The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h. Its 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine is tuned to produce 306 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque.
Modern style, cutting-edge technology, and first-class materials perfectly harmonize in the cabin, proving that this new CLA coupe has what it takes to gain the AMG 35 badge.
Special Features of the Mercedes-AMG CLA35 Coupe AMG 4Matic Premium Plus
“Hey Mercedes” Voice Activation
Allowing you to interact directly with various functions of your Mercedes, this AI-powered voice control activates with a simple “Hey Mercedes” command.
This MBUX feature is smart enough to understand even simple commands and questions. Simply asking if you need an umbrella today, it will give you the day’s weather forecast or saying you’re cold, and it will lower the car’s temperature for you.
AMG Aerodynamic Package
With a sportier stance and a more aggressive look, the CLA35 Coupe AMG 4Matic Premium Plus arrives with several upgrades from the AMG aerodynamic package.
It includes a unique front splitter with adjusted flics in the air intake and a black diffuser blade in a high-gloss finish. As well as a fixed rear wing, in a high-gloss black finish, at the rear that adds contact pressure on the rear axle to improve the car’s driving dynamics at much higher speeds.
KEYLESS-GO Starting Function
Mercedes-Benz introduced the KEYLESS-GO feature to take comfort and efficiency to the next level. This feature allows you to unlock, start, and drive, with your SmartKey never leaving your pocket.
Touch the door handles to lock and unlock your car, or step on the brake pedal and press the Start/Stop button to start the engine right away.
10.25-inch Media Display
Functional and premium quality display, this 10.25-inch media touchscreen has a multi-touch interface that offers quick access to different functions like audio, phone, and vehicle settings.
Integrated with the MBUX technology that revolutionizes the infotainment system with its smartphone-style user experience by adapting and responding to voice control activation.
It also presents an extended input method for command controls, such as head-up display, smartphone integration, interior assist, and many more.
This panoramic sunroof comes as a fully functional glass panel that offers both exquisite skyward view and ventilation for front and passenger seats.
Configured to tilt up or slide back, its power interior shade directs the amount of light based on your preference. The “Hey Mercedes” voice activation function can also manage the opening and closing of this panoramic sunroof.
For supreme ride comfort, the Dynamic Select function lets you choose your preferred driving mode.
Aside from ECO and Sport modes, it comes with an ‘Individual Mode’ that allows you to create a customized setup. You can easily calibrate your car’s shift points, acceleration, chassis, and more in one place.
Interior of the Mercedes-AMG CLA35 Coupe AMG 4Matic Premium Plus
AMG Performance Steering Wheel
Designed to achieve a combination of comfort and athleticism, the AMG Performance steering wheel comes in a flat bottom design inspired by racing cars with thick padding and wrapped in Nappa leather.
It has perforated side grips that offer precise handling, while raised thumb rests are at the ideal “10 and 2 o’clock” positions, close to the shift paddles.
Located at the centre console, this large touchpad allows you to manage the in-dash media display with just a flicker of your fingers.
Meticulously designed to recognize multitouch gestures like swiping through menus and pinching to zoom for that smartphone-like setup.
It also includes virtual keys for Back, Skip, and Home, as well as familiarizing and reading handwriting.
Seat Comfort Package
Packed with several seating comfort configurations, this package perfectly caters to ergonomic individualization and provides options for the desired seat position.
The seat comfort package covers the height-adjustable front passenger’s seat, seat cushion angle adjustment for the driver’s and front passenger’s seat, seat cushion length adjustment for improved seating comfort.
Two-zone Automatic Climate Control
The THERMOTRONIC feature allows an individual (two-zone) climate comfort both for the driver and front passenger.
It includes settings that would enable passengers to set their preferred air distribution and blower speed individually.
An integrated filter provides reliable purification of the ambient air from dust, soot, and pollen particles upon entering the cabin.
Innovative and convenient, this 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster provides a vivid display of information and exclusive AMG readabouts for the driver.
Customizable in AMG-specific analogue-style and digital displays, this panel offers a multifunction menu screen for configuration and driver-assistance features.
Compatible with universal Qi standard, including iPhone 8 and iPhone X, to name a few, wireless charging has never been more convenient than this.
A built-in charging pad on the centre console storage facility initiates charging once the device lies face up on the charging mat.
Placing metals and magnetic objects near the pad are highly discouraged to avoid technical disruptions.
Exterior of the Mercedes-AMG CLA35 Coupe AMG 4Matic Premium Plus
Featuring classic AMG styles such as wide wheel domes and slim, sporty waistline, AMG designers ensure sporty details for the CLA 35 Coupe 4MATIC Premium Plus.
AMG Line front apron with flicks and slats makes this car different from CLA-Class units. Silver chrome front splitter and trim elements on the louvers in the outer air inlets partnered with a specific diffuser look with four vertical fins at the rear complete this Coupe’s sportiness like no other.
AMG Sports Exhaust System
Two round tailpipes attached to the rear apron accentuate the rear’s deep frame. The AMG Sport Exhaust System regulates the exhaust flow released through the tailpipes based on the chosen driving mode.
The vanes open wide to produce an intense roar for Sport mode while ensuring discreet sound for Comfort mode.
Parking Assist Package
This package includes a 180° reversing camera, Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC, and front and rear parking sensors.
These parking technologies aim to secure a safe and hassle-free driving experience and maneuvering, especially in parking spaces.
The instrument panel displays the complete 180° visual from the camera. Simultaneously, the parking sensors give a systematic guide for parking, and the parking assist provides both visual and audible warnings for detected barriers.
19” AMG Light-alloy Wheels
Stunning AMG styling won’t be complete without the large 19” AMG light-alloy wheels. The turbine-looking multi-spoke wheels with a matte black finish and thin silver outline befit the car’s sporty image.
High-performance tires guarantee impressive handling, launch grip, and excellent driving experience.
MULTIBEAM LED Headlamps
Using the high-resolution LED module, these headlamps provide the driver with more dynamic lighting. The individually controlled LEDs illuminate the road with accuracy based on traffic conditions.
High-performance main beams, coupled with the anti-dazzle feature, react faster to secure safe driving for you and other traffic.
A simple press of a button inside your car will now adjust and move the exterior mirrors without hassle.
The Mirror Package protects the exterior mirrors from any damage, especially when caught in a small space. It also has dimming features for the driver’s exterior mirror and the rear-view mirror inside.

New Mercedes-AMG CLA 35 2020 – is it worth the extra £££ over the A35 hatch or saloon?
History of Mercedes-AMG CLA35 Coupe AMG 4Matic Premium Plus
Mercedes-Benz introduced their first-ever front-wheel-drive, the CLA-Class, in 2013 as their executive subcompact vehicle. Carrying the fame of the A-Class and B-Class compact concept, Mercedes-Benz showcased the CLA-Class as a four-door hatchback and the very first front-wheel-drive vehicle in the United States’ market.
Progressive developments for the following years caused the CLA’s fast-paced growth. Mercedes-Benz made various versions and trims featuring AMG design packages, new accessories like the GmbH equipment, and even lower fuel consumption capabilities for the CLA-Class units. Finally, in 2018, the AMG models entered the official line, resulting in a significant change in CLA-Class’s name and a more competitive portfolio of high performing models.
Now on its second generation, the CLA-class retained its fastback styling to make it stand out from the A-Class. The frameless door design and rear lights may seem the same as the CLS-Class, but the coupe-like silhouette is unmistakably CLA.
Appealing to the younger and tech-savvy generation of car enthusiasts, the CLA packs more advanced technologies than its predecessors. The multifunctional touchpad on the centre console, the 10.25-inch touchscreen media display with AMG-specific features, and the AMG Performance steering wheel equips the techy dashboard.
The Mercedes-AMG CLA35 Coupe AMG 4Matic Premium Plus is part of the second generation CLA-Class Coupe series alongside CLA 45 4MATIC+ and CLA 45 S 4MATIC+ Coupé. With its athletic proportions and the exhaust tailpipe trims with a 90mm diameter positioned on the left and right rear, the CLA35 Coupe AMG 4Matic Premium Plus stands out from the rest of the series.
Hailed by Autocar UK as the sharpest looking of all Mercedes-AMG’s performance cars, the Mercedes-AMG CLA35 Coupe AMG 4Matic Premium Plus combines performance and style without sacrificing rear space as compared with a real coupe. Attracting younger car consumers, the United States and other European countries remain as the car’s primary markets.
