Power and style in a compact format – the new A-Class is also making its debut at Mercedes‑AMG, making it the sporty top of the range. The top model Mercedes-AMG A 45 S 4MATIC+ and especially the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC benefit from the refreshment from Affalterbach. With its revised look, the A 35 moves even closer to the AMG family and is still available as a compact sedan and sedan, the A 45 S as before as a compact sedan.
AMG A45S 4MATIC+ & A35 4MATIC
Outside: The revised headlights, the AMG-specific radiator grille and the new, round badge with the AMG crest instead of the Mercedes star with a laurel wreath are the first things that catch the eye when you look at the new Mercedes-AMG A-Class. In addition, a new front apron and the power domes known from the A 35 ensure a new, harmonious AMG face for the A 45. The AMG look is underlined by the new wheel design, the rear spoiler lip, revised rear headlights and the typically round exhaust pipes (twin-flow on the Mercedes-AMG A 45 S 4MATIC+).
indoor: The new Mercedes‑AMG A‑Class offers the AMG Performance steering wheel including AMG steering wheel buttons as standard, with which the driver can control AMG-specific features such as the three-stage ESP or AMG Dynamics – without taking his hand off the steering wheel. Furthermore, the well-known AMG performance seat is now also available in the trend color sage grey.
48-volt partial electrical system and starter generator
Technique: There is also an engine update in the Mercedes‑AMG A‑Class. Like the standard models, the Mercedes-AMG A 35 is equipped with a 48-volt electrical system and belt-driven starter generator (BSG) and achieves an output of 225 kW/306 hp with a maximum torque of 400 Nm. As a mild hybrid, the RSG supports agility with 10 kW more power when starting. Furthermore, an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 8-speed transmission is now on board and the new front cooler makes temperature management at the limit easier.
Infotainment & Connectivity: The new Mercedes-AMG A-Class also benefits from the latest MBUX generation: increased performance, the integration of the fingerprint sensor (expected to be available from the first quarter of 1) for profile authorization in the central display, more USB charging power and the new AMG -typical screen design make driving the new AMG A‑Class an interactive pleasure.
AMG Street Style Edition: For the market launch of the new Mercedes-AMG A-Class, there will also be a very special version of the Mercedes-AMG A 45 S 4MATIC+ exclusively and for a limited time: the AMG Street Style Edition impresses with extroverted and exclusive equipment elements. With the basic paintwork in mountain gray magno and the edition-specific foiling with color gradient in black/anthracite matt and color accents in bright orange, it emphasizes the elements of the aerodynamics package. The look is perfectly complemented by the newly designed 19-inch rims in matt black and the bright red brake calipers.
chic AMG Street Style Edition
The interior of the AMG Street Style Edition is also unmistakable: the AMG Performance seat in black MICROCUT microfibre is adorned with seams and highlights in bright orange. The also orange label on the headrest makes it quickly clear which edition from Mercedes‑AMG it is. The AMG Performance steering wheel in leather/MICROCUT with orange contrasting topstitching and the AMG trim elements in aluminum with the same pattern as the exterior foil set further accents in the interior. With its four cylinders, the AMG Street Style Edition has an output of 310 kW (421 hp) and is supplied with the AMG aerodynamic package, the AMG Night package I and II and the separate AMG fuel filler cap.
