Mercedes publishes the first pictures with the new A 35 AMG. The car could use a micro-hybrid system.
The world premiere is scheduled for October
Mercedes released the first official photos of the much anticipated A35 AMG version this month. These images capture both the front and rear of the car that compete with Volkswagen Golf R.
Two-liter turbo engine and 224 horsepower, seven-speed automatic transmission and double clutch, plus 4Matic all-wheel drive. These are the elements that accompany the most powerful version of the new Mercedes A-Class, the A 250 4Matic.
However, the situation will change radically in the next period, with the German company giving the start of the campaign announcing the debut of the much anticipated A 35 AMG. Designed to compete against names like the Audi S3 or the Volkswagen Golf R, the compact and high-performance car is expected in showrooms alongside a micro-hybrid propulsion system.
More specifically, the car in question would take over the 300 hp and 400 Nm of the E 300 Coupe / E 300 Cabrio. An automatic DCT box and an all-wheel drive system will also complete this technical data sheet.
With the accelerator pedal on the floor, the first A 35 AMG in the history of Mercedes should sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in no more than five seconds, while the maximum speed will be – without any doubt, limited to 250 kilometers per hour. The improvements made to both the suspension and the brakes will make future high-performance German compacts able to approach the bumps very confidently.
From aesthetic point of view, the new competitor of the Audi S3 and Volkswagen Golf R models will be differentiated from the other versions by a formula that includes aggressively stylized spoilers, prominent thresholds, roof spoiler, plus unique design rims.
More elements specific to the AMG variants will also be used at the interior level, the first A 35 in the history of the Mercedes company going to showrooms alongside restyled board instruments, the three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, sports front seats and ornaments from carbon fiber. Starting in December, shortly after the international debut at the Paris Motor Show, some voices say.
