2019 Mercedes-AMG A35 Sedan Prototype Leaves Little To The Imagination

Last time we saw a Mercedes-AMG A35 Sedan prototype was back in June, and that car was heavily camouflaged bumper to bumper. This one however, not as much, leaving very little to the imagination.

Of course, the fact that we already know what the 5-door A35 looks like definitely helps, as Mercedes-AMG unveiled it just last month, along with a full specs sheet, focused around its turbocharged 2.0-liter engine.

We know what you look like

The fact that this A35 Sedan prototype still has a few bits and pieces covered up means very little. We know to expect a unique grille, more aggressive bumpers, a boot lid spoiler, 18-inch wheels, stiffer suspension and bigger brakes. In fact, we saw a pretty accurate rendering just a few weeks back, although it was missing the spoiler and the chunkier rear diffuser.

As for the interior, it will come with a sporty flat-bottom steering wheel, microfiber accents and contrast stitching, plus an assortment of AMG-specific settings, options and badges.

We know what you can do

Underneath the hood of the 5-door A35 lies a turbocharged 2.0-liter 306 PS (301 HP) engine, which also produces 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. The four-door model will utilize the exact same engine, as well as the same seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and performance-oriented AWD system.

We also anticipate a similar 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time, where the hatchback is rated at 4.7 seconds.

As for tech, the new model will feature Mercedes‘ latest MBUX infotainment system, plus a full suite of driver-assistance and safety systems, such as GPS-enabled cruise control, emergency braking and lane-change assist.

Unlike the A35 hatchback, the sedan model will also be sold in the United States, alongside the more powerful A45 variant. We expect Mercedes-AMG to launch the A35 Sedan early next year.
