The first-ever Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC has made its world debut at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. Here are its live images from the event.
The Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC is the new entry-level AMG model from the Affalterbach-based high-performance brand that will slot below the next-gen Mercedes-AMG A 45 4MATIC due next year.
Powering the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC is the M 260 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol motor that churns out 225 kW (306 PS) of maximum power between 5,800-6,100 rpm and a peak torque of 400 Nm at 3,000-4,000 rpm. A 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission works in tandem with the engine, while an all-wheel-drive system transfers power to all the four wheels.
The Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h, and it accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 4.7 seconds. It comes equipped with four driving modes. Customers can opt for the AMG Track Pace package as part of the MBUX infotainment system that allows them to record vehicle-specific data like speed, acceleration and the likes while driving on a race track.
The fourth-gen A-Class' first AMG variant has a more dynamic styling achieved with the AMG radiator grille with twin louvres with silver chrome trims, a front splitter, 18-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels, AMG Line side sill, sporty rear bumper a diffuser, roof spoiler and twin exhaust pipes.
As far as interiors are concerned, the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC features Artico man-made leather seat upholstery, a 10.25-inch infotainment system along with a secondary display on the centre console, flat-bottomed AMG steering wheel and ventilation nozzles with a red ring. The car also comes equipped with ESC and adaptive damping with three suspension control modes.

Mercedes-Benz hasn’t announced any plans to bring the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC to the Indian shores. However, if it does, this model will make for a great entry-point into the AMG range. In Europe, the market launch will take place in early 2019.
