Several new pictures of the Mercedes-AMG A35 have surfaced online, ahead of the model’s unveiling at the Paris Motor Show.
Looking like a sportier take on the AMG Line variant, the A35 is distinguished by a unique single bar grille that features a mesh insert. The car has also been equipped with a front lip spoiler and small canards.
The most noticeable changes are out back as the A35 has a large rear wing and a modified bumper with ducting around the vents. Further below, we can a unique dual exhaust system and a rear diffuser which could be adjustable.
Additional styling changes are hard to spot, but the model has lightweight alloy wheels and side skirts which echo those found on the AMG Line variant. We can also get a glimpse of the hatchback’s braking system which has likely been upgraded in usual AMG fashion.
The interior largely carries over from the standard model, but we can see a flat-bottomed AMG steering wheel and stainless steel pedals. We can also expect a slightly modified digital instrument cluster and infotainment system with AMG graphics and menus.
Mercedes has been teasing the model for a few days now, but the automaker has remained tight-lipped about performance specifications. However, Mercedes-AMG CEO Tobias Moers has previously said the car will have a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with “more than 300 hp (223 kW / 304 PS).” Some reports have suggested the final figure could be closer to 340 hp (253 kW / 344 PS) – possibly thanks to EQ Boost technology.
