German carmaker Mercedes-Benz has revealed the latest member of the 35 lineup in the form of the sedan variant of the A35 AMG. The all-new Mercedes-AMG A35 is the sedan version of the hot hatchback revealed last year at the 2018 Paris Motor Show.
Like its hot hatchback sibling, the all-new A35 AMG sedan draws power from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine fitted with a twin-scroll turbocharger. The new Mercedes-AMG A35's petrol engine pushes out 302bhp at 5,800rpm and 400Nm of peak torque between 3,000 - 4,000rpm.
Power is sent to all four wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and all-wheel-drive. This allows the A35 AMG sedan to sprint from 0–100km/h in just 4.8 seconds and onward to an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h.
With regards to the suspension setup, the AMG A35 sports an aluminium wishbone with one spring strut and one tie rod at the front axle and a four-link setup at the rear. Mercedes is also offering the newest AMG model with adaptive dampers, though that feature is an optional extra.
To help bring the new A35 to a stop, AMG has fitted the new sedan with 4-piston monoblock fixed callipers and 350mm brake discs up front. The rear axle features 1-piston sliding callipers and 330mm disc brakes. All four brake discs are internally ventilated and perforated to better dissipate heat and prevent brake fading.
The new A35 AMG sedan features five different driving modes: Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport +, and Individual. The new 'Slippery' driving mode is for use in low-grip, icy road conditions. This mode reduces the power output and offers a flat torque curve along with smooth gear changes with earlier upshifts and ECO start/stop system support to give a more stabilised ride on icy roads.
Comfort mode offers a more comfortable ride and more performance calibrated towards efficency. Sport and Sport + offer a more performance focused drive while the Individual mode allows drivers to setup the car as per their own driving style.
Regarding design, the A35 AMG carries over most what is seen on the A-Class sedan but adds features like the bootlip spoiler and large dual exhausts at the rear. Also new are the 18-inch alloy wheels, and Mercedes is offering the new A35 AMG sedan with 19-inchers as an option.
