Just a few months after we saw the first official photos is time to see some specs about this jewelry. The car is easy to drive and comfortable on longer runs and the cockpit is hugely impressive for a compact car.
Costing more than $40,000, the A45 AMG was a touch expensive, but if you take a look closer you may like it. You’ll pay about $1500 for the AMG Executive pack, which adds leather, parking assist and that signature 10.25in central screen.
This is the most affordable AMG.
The new A-Class body is much stiffer than its predecessor’s for one thing and, for the first time, AMG has fitted an aluminium shear panel beneath the engine compartment that reinforces the front end of the bodyshell, while a couple of additional braces do more of the same.

The 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine is a development of a unit you’ll find in the A-Class, but it uses a twin-scroll turbocharger for immediate throttle response. Peak power is 302bhp and torque is rated at 295lb ft from 3000rpm. The gearbox is a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and the four-wheel-drive system powers the front axle only in normal driving before sending up to 50% of the available torque aft.
The 4Matic system also has a Sport mode – activated in ESP Sport Handling or ESP Off – which favours the rear axle more readily for even more agile handling behaviour.
Is engaging and more enjoyable to drive. You can switch between Comfort, Sport and Sport+ for the adaptive dampers which means you can always find the right balance between bump compliance and body control to suit the road beneath you.
On Pirelli P Zero tyres that are not the outright grippiest rubber of their sort in the dry, the A35 nonetheless claws huge grip out of the road surface.
If you prefer a more extravagantly styled sort of hot hatch, you’ll be interested in the AMG Aerodynamics pack. Costing about $3000, it adds a prominent rear wing, a diffuser blade, a front splitter and small flicks ahead of the front wheels, all in contrasting black.
