Mid-Range Performance Model Launched By Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Set To Appeal To The Younger Generation.
Six months after the global reveal, the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan reaches Malaysian shores, and was unveiled by Mercedes-Benz Malaysia on the 24th of September 2019. Retailing at RM348,888 on the road without insurance, inclusive of a 4 year unlimited mileage warranty, the fully imported mid-range performance model is set to appeal to the younger target groups who are looking for a high level of performance and a comfortable amount of space for passengers and luggage.
At the heart of the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan lies the lively 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine which churns out 306 horse power and a remarkable 400 Nm of torque. This lightweight but robust power plant is mated with a seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G dual clutch transmission in delivering power to its 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system capable of variable torque distribution – which spectrum ranges from full front-wheel drive only to a 50:50 percent distribution to the front and rear axles. These pairings allows the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan to sprint from 0-100 km/h in 4.8 seconds.
To cope with the power, specific measures were taken to strengthen the front section of the bodyshell. An aluminium “shearing plate” is placed underneath the engine to increase the torsional rigidity and bending resistance at the vehicle’s front end. There are two additional diagonal braces at the front of the underbody to further increase the stiffness. These form the basis for precise turn-in ability and the toe and camber stability of the chassis components, even when driving at speed.
The Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan features the AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension, an adaptive adjustable damping system which operates fully automatically, adapting the damping forces for each wheel according to the driving situation and road conditions. This further enhances the ride comfort and agility in equal measure.
Being compact and sporty, the sedan further adorns the aggressive AMG aesthetics and styling such as the radiator grille with twin louvres, the AMG Line front apron with flics on the air intakes, a front spoiler, silver chrome trims, new rear diffuser inserts and 19-inch AMG 5-twin spoke alloy wheels.
Within the interior, the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan adorns primarily a black and red accents theme, characteristic of AMG combination. Seats are ARTICO man-made leather with DINAMICA microfibre. With above average shoulder, elbow and headroom, plus easy access to the rear contributes further to the increased utility. Additionally from the hatchback is the generous 420 litres boot capacity with large opening allowing for ease of loading and unloading.
The Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan also features class leading features such as the state-of-the-art safety and assistance systems, the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) and the heads-up display.
