MERCEDES-BENZ Australia/Pacific has confirmed that its A35 Sedan will hit local showrooms “within weeks of the A35 Hatch”, sometime in the fourth quarter of this year, however, pricing and specifications have yet to be established.
 
It is expected that the German saloon will mirror its hot hatch sibling, sporting the same 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine as found in the new-generation A220 and A250, but tuned up to deliver 225kW of power and 400Nm of torque.
 
Power is sent via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to all four wheels through AMG’s 4Matic all-wheel-drive system, blasting the four-door from zero to 100km/h in 4.8 seconds.
 
According to a release from Mercedes-AMG, the A35 Sedan is aimed at younger customers who look for both performance and practicality. 
 
“It appeals to young target groups who are looking for a high level of performance and a comfortable amount of space for passengers and luggage,” it reads.
 
Unlike the hatch, the A35 Sedan features a 420-litre boot and has more room for passengers with 944mm of rear headroom. 
 
The A35 range will sit below the yet-to-be-revealed new-generation A45, and, according to Mercedes-AMG chief executive officer Tobias Moers, will serve as a new entry point into the AMG brand. 
 
“With our new A35, we are transporting this history into modern times in the form of a very attractive model that serves as a point of entry into the world of AMG and also appeals to new customer groups,” he said.
 
When the A35 models arrive later this year, a strong suite of interior features will come standard including the MBUX multimedia system shown on twin high-definition displays, fitted with AMG-specific software for telemetry, performance settings and mechanical data. 
 
Separating the car from the standard A-Class, the A35 features a unique grille with twin louvres, an AMG Line front apron, splitter and silver chrome trim elements. 
 
Furthermore, the performance four-door features bespoke 18-inch alloy wheels, a new diffuser, bootlip spoiler and two large exhaust outlets. 
 
The interior is lined in Artico man-made leather in black, while red stitching, microfibre trim pieces and red seatbelts further reveal its sportscar status.
 
Suspension is managed by McPherson struts at the front, and a four-link system at the rear.
 
Four-piston fixed callipers grab 350mm brake discs are used up-front, while single-piston stoppers with 330mm discs are found at the rear. 
 
With the release of the new-generation platform last year, Mercedes-Benz sold 4,175 A-Class units for a 12.4 per cent drop year-to-year.
