AMG’s cheapest car, the 2020 Mercedes-AMG A35 4Matic, is set to arrive in locally later this year with Mercedes-Benz Australia having confirmed pricing and specification for it launch.
Arriving as both hatch and sedan, the A35 was designed to meet the benchmark of the previous generation AMG A45, though with a less powerful 225kW/400Nm 2.0-litre twin-scroll turbocharged four.
Set to appear on Aussie shores in September, the A35 hatch is to be priced from $67,200 before on-road costs, while the sedan version will arrive a month later in October and set buyers back an extra little bit at $69,800.
As with most AMG models, the first on-sale year will also allow customers to option the ‘Edition 1’ pack, which adds paint highlights and extra details for a $6990 premium.
The A35 Edition 1 comes with Demin Blue paint, Tech Gold highlights, AMG’s aerodynamics pack, and AMG multi-spoke 19-inch alloy wheels. Inside, racing seats and a Black and Magma Grey Artico and Dynamica microfibre theme is accented by polished aluminium.
AMG boss Tobias Moers said at the A35’s global reveal that demand for AMG hot hatches had exploded since the first A45 was revealed.
“This success has encouraged us to further expand our portfolio and place it on a broader footing. With the new A35, we are fulfilling our brand promise of driving performance in every detail and offering thrilling lateral dynamics at the level of [the last] A45.”
