Mercedes has unveiled a new, more muscled version of its A Class. Derived from the AMG A35 launched at the end of 2018, this sedan model is notable for its performance and large amount of space.

After revealing the AMG A35 at the Paris Motor Show in 2018, Mercedes presents the "saloon" model, a sedan model with a much larger trunk. The engine of the AMG A35 4MATIC Saloon has the same 2.0-litre 228kW four-cylinder turbo. Combined with a double-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive, this provides excellent performance, 0-100km/h in just 4.8 seconds and a maximum speed of 250km/h.

The vehicle features more space inside the cab and the trunk, which has a capacity of 420 litres compared to the original model's 370. This model benefits from the latest advances made by Mercedes, including the MBUX multimedia system which can be voice-controlled using the request "Hey Mercedes."

Pricing and availability are yet to be announced.
