2020 Mercedes-AMG A 35 Performance and speed: Flawless engine and top-notched speed!

There are lots of similarities in their mechanical configuration; these include the upgraded version of 220’s turbo-charged (2.0 liters) 4-cylinder engine. It has an incredible ability to generate 302hp and 295 Ib-ft of torque. This might ignite your dissatisfaction with your regular A-Class, which has 188hp and 221 Ib-ft of torque.

Don’t start jumping yet! A 35 is a representation the middle-born in the A-class series. This means, it will soon get topped by another beastly A 45 model. This one will be able to generate a whopping 416 horsepower. Despite the difference in horsepower between the A35 and A45A, they both potentially share similar automatic transmission of seven-dual clutch and a 4Matic standard AWD. This new machine has the ability to accelerate from a standstill of zero to sixty miles per hour in just 4.7 seconds. We learnt from a reliable source that it is likely to be quicker when you drive it in real life.

It features an upgraded chassis with an aluminum stiffening plate which is found under the engine of the car. It has a firmer AMG tuned suspension which is effectively adaptive and consists of more aluminum parts. The all-drive configuration makes use of clutched rear differential which is electro-mechanically set up to a hundred percent torque, to the axle found at the front part of the car or rear with 50 percent.

The 2020 Mercedes-AMG A 35 transmission also has additional Race Start launch-control function, AMG Dynamics, and a software layer which is on top of regular stability control that does work within the chassis mode to deploy a better and sharper handling and a brake inclined torque vectoring. You should expect a brake setup of 4-piston monobloc calipers and rotor out back of 13 inches. The modes of the chassis constitute Comfort, Individual, Sport, Sport+, and a new slippery mode for flawless driving on ice, which is notorious for killing power and flattening of torque curve.

But we are getting a hint of $45,000 which is 16.2 million naira.
