Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has launched the new Mercedes-AMG A 35 4Matic sedan in Malaysia to expand its current range of AMG models. With an estimated price of RM348,888, the A 35 is targeted at a younger crowd who are looking for driving performance but also want a fair amount of space in the car.
Putting the fun in this A 35 is a 2.0-litre turbo engine with 306 hp and 400 Nm of torque that transfers power to the Mercedes-AMG-specific 4Matic all-wheel drive system and out to the 19″ wheels, allowing it to accelerate from 0 – 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds. The crankcase is made of high-strength, lightweight die-cast aluminium to reduce vehicle weight for better driving dynamics.
The variable AMG Performance 4Matic combines the best possible traction with driving fun. The torque distribution is infinitely variable to suit the dynamic handling requirements. The spectrum ranges from front-wheel drive only to a 50:50 percent distribution to the front and rear axles.
The A 35 has a 2,729 mm wheelbase with the body sporting short front and rear overhangs which places the wheels nearer to each corner of the car. Meanwhile, the interior of the A 35 provides rear headroom of 944 mm, as well as above-average shoulder, elbow room plus easy access . Further, the boot has a holding capacity of 420 litres and was designed for practical usability. The boot opening has a sizable width of 950 mm and a diagonal measurement of 462 mm between lock and lower edge of the rear window, allowing for comfortable loading and unloading.
The seats are wrapped in Artico faux leather with Dinamica microfibre in black with red contrasting top-stitching as well as red seat belts. Red piping on the Dinamica trim element and ventilation nozzles with a red ring add further accents. Another new feature is the distinctive AMG centre console with touchpad and additional switch for operating ESP and manual transmission mode.
The A 35 comes with AMG Dynamics which is a new feature in the AMG Dynamic Select drive programme. This integrated dynamic handling control system extends the stabilising functions of ESP with agile interventions according to the driver’s wishes. During dynamic cornering, imperceptible braking intervention on the rear inside wheel creates a defined yawing moment about the vertical axis which results in a more precise handling car.
Helping add rigidity to the car is an aluminium shearing plate install under the engine to increase torsional rigidity and bending resistance in the front. Two additional diagonal braces at the front of the underbody also reduce torsion and increase the stiffness.
The AMG Ride Control suspension features an adaptive adjustable damping system, which allows you to switch between three different suspension configurations. The system operates automatically, adapting the damping forces for each wheel according to the driving situation and road conditions. This happens within milliseconds and is infinitely variable, with a wide spread of damping characteristics. The result is that ride comfort and agility are enhanced in equal measure.
Moving back inside, the MBUX multimedia system combines an intuitive operating structure with sporty design. MBUX creates and even closer connection between the vehicle, driver and passengers. Emotionally appealing presentations underline the clear control structure and it features brilliant maximum-resolution 3D graphics. Visually, the two displays under one shared glass cover blend into a widescreen cockpit and as a central element consequently emphasize the horizontal orientation of the interior design.
The A-Class range has tailored financing packages from Mercedes-Benz Financial that enables you to have a lower fixed monthly instalments over a set period of time, according to your needs.
For a limited time, all Plan A+ financing contracts come with two complimentary comprehensive service packages.
