STUTTGART: The new 2019 Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC expands the AMG model range with an attractive entry-level model.

The A 35 4MATIC costs 47,528.60 euro (RM226,035), while the limited Edition 1 sells for 55,364.75 euro (RM263,302).

The 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine generates an output of 306hp and produces a peak torque of 400Nm.

High driving dynamics are also ensured by the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G dual-clutch transmission and the AMG-specific suspension.

The standard-fit AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive varies the torque distribution anywhere from pure front-wheel drive to a 50:50 ratio.

An acceleration time of 4.7 seconds for 0-100 km/h and the top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited) offers high driving dynamics in the compact segment.

Five AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive modes enable a wide spread in the vehicle characteristics from comfortable to dynamic.

The interior gets the new MBUX multimedia system and another new feature is the distinct AMG centre console with Touchpad and additional switches for operating functions such ESP, manual transmission mode and adaptive adjustable damping.

Options include 19-inch wheels and a AMG Aerodynamics Package developed in the wind tunnel that improves handling at high speeds.

Edition 1 – for even more individuality

The limited Edition 1 is available from market launch for a period of 18 months.

On the Edition 1, the equipment list includes the AMG Aerodynamics Package and the AMG Night Package.

The denim blue paint finish and the "tech gold" accents on the side mirror housings and the lower sections of the doors produce an especially exclusive look.

The 19-inch Livorno wheels with high-sheen finish feature a wheel cover with centre-lock look and also sport that same "tech gold" hue.

The AMG Performance seats upholstered with black/grey ARTICO/DINAMICA featuring blue accents and medium-grey contrasting topstitching as well as the AMG Performance steering wheel emphasise the sportiness in the interior.

The Edition 1 also comes with heated seats and ambient lighting as standard. Aluminium trim elements and an 'Edition' badge on the steering wheel add visual highlights in the interior.
