Hot on the heels of the A35 and A45 hot hatchbacks is the first-ever A-Class AMG saloon: the new Mercedes A35 Saloon 4Matic Premium Plus AMG!
The perfect choice for drivers looking for a compact car with a high level of sportiness complemented with a comfortable amount of space.
The Mercedes-AMG A35 Saloon 4Matic Premium Plus is longer yet less tall than its hatchback sibling. Having a real coupe-like silhouette differentiates itself from the other non-AMG A-Class saloon variants.
It comes complete with AMG body styling components – such as front brake calipers with “AMG” lettering. It is also equipped with front wings with “TURBO 4MATIC” lettering and 19-inch matte black AMG multi-spoke alloy wheels.
Premium Plus Performance
A turbocharged 2-liter 4-cylinder engine with exhaust gases exiting via the AMG sports exhaust system (twin tailpipes) propels this car. The Mercedes-AMG A35 Saloon 4Matic Premium Plus can call upon 302 hp and 400 Nm at any time. Boasting spontaneous response to throttle inputs, the 0 to 100 km/h dash takes just 4.8 seconds.
The 7G-DCT gearbox sends torque to the AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive and can distribute the torque in an infinitely variable manner. A full front-wheel drive splitting 50:50 between the front and rear axles optimizes traction in all driving and road conditions.
It also has a lightweight and stable AMG suspension with the McPherson strut on the front. The rear multi-link setup ensures that the saloon is supremely stable and extremely agile. 4-piston monoblock calipers ably handle stopping duties. Each of these has 350 mm brake discs up front and 1-piston sliding calipers with 330 mm discs at the rear.
The AMG Performance steering wheel in Nappa leather with aluminum paddle shifters completes the sporty cabin. The link to the speed-sensitive, electro-mechanical power steering supports sporty driving with its direct turn-in ability.
The sports seats and brushed stainless steel sports pedals with rubber studs further hint at the Mercedes-AMG A35 Saloon 4Matic Premium Plus’s on-road prowess. Also, smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, coupled with wireless charging, ensures constant connectivity.
Our Mercedes-AMG A35 4MATIC Saloon Premium Plus comes equipped with Premium and Premium Plus packages. The Premium package includes the Night package, Keyless-entry, and 64-colour ambient lighting. Complete with the 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, which complements the 10.25-inch touchscreen media display.
The Adaptive Damping System headlines the Premium Plus package. It also comes complete with Multibeam LED headlights and Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus.
