Mercedes-AMG A 35

(2018 - present)

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 AMG family, sitting underneath the range-topping A 45 model that is expected to be launched in the second half of 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.
