Expert Rating

The Mercedes-AMG A 35 is a performance version of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class by the company’s performance division, AMG. It was launched at the 2018 Paris motor show.

The A 35 model is a new addition to the Mercedes-AMG family, sitting between the regular Mercedes A-Class models and the range-topping A 45 model, the second-generation version of which joined the range in late 2019.

The Mercedes-AMG A 35 has received good to very good reviews from the UK motoring media, with praise for its overall performance and high-quality interior. However, it has been criticised for a lack of driver engagement compared to some other hot hatches.
