The cheapest AMG model has an MSRP of €47,528.60 ($54,183) in its home market and benefits from the specific AMG body kit on the outside and the MBUX infotainment system inside.
Power comes from a 2.0-liter four-banger making 306 PS (301 hp / 225 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. The unit works together with a seven-speed DCT and standard all-wheel drive, rocketing the A35 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds and up to a top speed electronically limited at 250 km/h (155 mph).
The AMG Aerodynamics Package, which was developed in the wind tunnel and improves handling at high speeds, is available as an option, along with the AMG Night Package, 19-inch wheels and others.
As usual, Mercedes-AMG is celebrating the launch of the new model with the Edition 1 version. It will remain on sale for the next 18 months and is more lavishly equipped compared to the regular A35, as it gets the Aerodynamics and Night packages, as well as 19-inch alloys, as standard.
Inside, it gets black, grey Artico or Dinamica upholstery with blue accents and medium-grey contrast stitching, heated performance seats, sports steering wheel, ambient lighting, aluminum trim elements and an ‘Edition’ badge on the steering wheel.
The Mercedes-AMG A35 Edition 1 uses the same engine as the regular A35 and has identical performance, but due to the added extras, as well as being a limited production run, it starts from €55,364.75 ($63,116).
Deliveries of both models will start in December.
