What comes to mind when you think of luxury cars? Ingrained in our minds are some of the most prominent automakers of the zeitgeist. These brands aren’t just symbols of wealth and opulence, but are also known for their designs as well as performances. One such example is Mercedes-Benz. In 2018, the Mercedes-Benz Cars division sold a total of 2,382,800 vehicles—an increase compared to 2,373,500 in 2017. This includes the Mercedes-Benz brand with the Mercedes-AMG, Mercedes-Maybach, Mercedes me sub-brands, as well as the new EQ brand. Numbers say a lot and it’s apparent that the German car manufacturer is still among the higher echelon in its industry.
It also important to not be complacent and the recent launch of the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan in Malaysia is proof that the company is forward-looking. The new option expands the current AMG line with an attractive entry-level model that comes with the following notable features.
With a two-litre four-cylinder turbo engine at the heart of the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan, benefits to the vehicle include spontaneous response to accelerator pedal commands, high tractive power, a lively response, and an engine sound typical of the range. Moreover, the A 35 accelerates from zero to 100 kilometres per hour in just 4.8 seconds when combined with Mercedes-AMG specific 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.
On the outside, the vehicle comes with the powerful proportions of a dynamic and compact sedan. Clearly noticeable are radiator grille with twin louvres, the AMG Line front apron with flics on the air intakes, a front splitter, and silver chrome trim elements—all distinguishing features of the AMG design. In addition to that, turn your attention to the sides and you will see 19-inch AMG five-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels as well as illuminated door sill panels.
There are some new features exclusive to the A 35, such as the AMG centre console with touchpad and Artico man-made leather seats (with Dinamica microfibre in black and red seat belts). That isn’t all as the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan also has the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) multimedia system. It provides maximum-resolution 3D graphics.
Furthermore, the A 35 comes with AMG Dynamics—a new feature in the AMG Dynamic Select drive programmes. This allows the vehicle to steer precisely and spontaneously. The AMG Ride Control suspension brings to the table an adaptive adjustable damping system. Drivers are able to change between three different configurations from comfort-focused to sporty.
The Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan is priced at RM348,888. For more information, visit this website.
