Mercedes-AMG has been unveiling lots of new performance cars in recent months, including the slick GLE 53. The latest car is the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4Matic Saloon, which is the second car in the new Mercedes compact car platform from Mercedes-AMG. The automaker says that this is the first choice for customers wanting comfortable space and sportiness.
Power comes from a 2.0L turbo four making 306hp and 400 Nm of torque. The engine has a twin-scroll turbocharger for responsiveness at low speeds and power at high speeds. The A 35 4Matic also features an exhaust system with a flap that controls sound depending on the drive mode selected.
The power goes to the road via all four wheels, and the car uses an AMG Speedshift DCT 7 dual-clutch transmission. The car does have a Race-Start feature, which is essentially launch control for the fastest acceleration.
Mercedes-AMG says the car can hit 100 km/h in 4.8-seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h. The car has the MBUX multimedia system inside and supports “Hey Mercedes” voice assistance.
A very cool looking fully digital instrument cluster is used in the car. It allows the driver to configure a range of special displays for warm-up, set-up, G-force, and engine data. The infotainment system also has telemetry data and AMG Track Pace features; pricing is unannounced at this time.
