The Mercedes-AMG A 35 sedan packs a punch, may be coming to Malaysia


Mercedes-AMG will fiddle with any car that bears the three-pointed star badge, from the tiny A-Class all the way up to the Gelandewagen. Their latest work, the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan.

Like the A 35 hatch, the sedan features a tuned-up version of the M260 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder found in the A 250 variant. With a sprinkle of AMG dust, power is now up from 224 hp to 306 hp while peak torque is up to 400 Nm.

With the 7-speed AMG Speedshift dual-clutch transmission and 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system, the A 35 Sedan can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds onwards to a governed 250 km/h top speed.

Subtle touches separate the A 35 from a regular AMG Line variant. Keen observers will notice the twin louvres diamond radiator grille, additional flicks on the side intakes, AMG branded brake calipers, “Turbo 4MATIC” badge on the front fenders and the 19-inch 5-twin spoke AMG alloys.

Differences around the rear is a little more obvious with the additional rear spoiler as well as the reprofiled bumpers to house the round shape twin exhaust outlets.

The cabin is identical to the A 35 hatchback with AMG specific widescreen cockpit with three AMG display styles, new-generation AMG performance steering wheel, additional buttons to alter the ESP programme, manual transmission mode and Adaptive Damping system as well as the AMG Track Pace data logger that records track times, acceleration and deceleration values.

He believes that the perfect remedy to Monday blues is a mixture of 4 wheels, clear roads and a pinch of twisty tarmac. A hot hatch is the icing on the cake.
