2020 Mercedes-AMG A35 Prices, Reviews, and Pictures

Overview

The A-class, which is the smallest member in the Mercedes-Benz family welcomes a new performance model this year: 2020 Mercedes-AMG A35. This entry-level sports sedan features 302 horsepower, standard all-wheel-drive, an aggressive-looking head and a raspy-sounding vocal. The 2020 Mercedes-AMG A35 is the latest model in the Mercedes-Benz family. The A35 is the most affordable way to buy an AMG without turning to the used car market. But don’t let its low price fool you: This tiny Mercedes still offers plenty of luxury.

What’s new for 2020?

As a new model, the A35 joins A-class’ lineup for 2020 model year.

Pricing and Which One To Buy

Many will be able to own an AMG with the A35. Although you can buy one for as low as $50,000, we don’t recommend it. The $2250 Driver Assistance package is a must-have for adaptive cruise and anti-collision wizardry. But you don’t have to stop there. Mercedes will require you to pay $1150 for the Multimedia Pack (navigation, traffic-sign recognition) or $725 for Premium Pack (keyless entry, power-folding, autodimming mirrors, and keyless entry). Add the $850 adaptive suspension to your A-class and it will cost you $51,000.

Performance, Transmission and Engine

The A35’s turbocharged 2.0-liter four cylinder produces 302 horsepower and 295 pounds-feet torque. Standard equipment includes all-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch auto with Race-Start launch-control that allows maximum acceleration even from a standing stop. Mercedes claims that the A35 can accelerate to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds. This is a good time for the class. Although we doubt that the brand will bring either the 382-hp A45, or the 416 hp A45S to the U.S.A, don’t be discouraged. The CLA45, Mercedes’ affordable AMG with more power, is available for those who want it. It costs about $10,000 more than an A35.

Fuel Economy and Real World MPG

The EPA estimates that the A35 4Matic will get 24 mpg in cities, 31 on the highway and 27 combined. These ratings are comparable to what the German competitors can offer. We have not yet tested the AMG A class on our 200-mile highway fuel economy loop. We’ll update this section when we do.

Interior, Comfort, & Cargo

The A35’s cabin is sporty and true to its AMG brand. The steering wheel is covered in perforated leather, and has galvanized paddles to control the seven-speed dual clutch automatic. Mercedes also offers leather upholstery and real wood as an option to the aluminum trim. For those who love a nightclub atmosphere, the factory will install a 64-color ambient lighting system with backlit center vents. Although the A-class is the smallest model of AMG’s, it will be difficult for some to fit in, we found that its rear seat fits most people quite well. The A35’s cargo space is nine cubic feet less than the S3 or 2-series Gran Coupe which can hold 10 and 15 cubes. Although we haven’t measured the A35’s storage capacity, five carry-on suitcases were able to be fit in the trunk of the A220. We also managed 15 seats folded.

Connectivity and Infotainment

The A35 is similar to other Mercedes models. It features two LCD monitors, one for the gauges and one for the infotainment systems. They are located under one long piece glass that runs much of the length of the instrument panel. The MBUX infotainment can be controlled by the driver using the buttons on the steering wheel, the touchpad on center console, tapping the screen or speaking commands. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard features, while satellite radio will set you back $460. Mercedes offers five USB-C ports in the cabin, as well as an eight-speaker stereo. Burmester offers a 12-speaker soundsystem for $850.
