Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) today introduced the new locally-assembled Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC and the Mercedes-AMG GLA 35 4MATIC, further cementing its local footprint in Malaysia.
Continuously setting standards in the luxury market, these vehicles marks the entry into the exciting world of Mercedes-AMG Driving Performance – sporty, emotional and packed with driving pleasure.
Michael Jopp, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia said, “At Mercedes-Benz, we always take pride in a strong belief of providing only the best as we continue to meet the demands of our customers.
As both A-Class and GLA are our best-selling models, we are excited to be able to launch the new Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC sedan and the new GLA 35 4MATIC, which are proudly assembled locally here in Pekan, Pahang.
With these vehicles introduced, we continue to deliver our promise to serve our Malaysian customers a wider range of high-performance luxury cars. We are confident that they will provide anyone behind the steering wheel a drive to remember.”
The 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine in both vehicles boast spontaneous response to
accelerator pedal commands, high tractive power (400 Nm max. torque from 3000 rpm), a
supremely lively response and an engine sound typical of AMG.
The engine produces 306 horse power and a remarkable 400 Nm of torque. Combined with Mercedes-AMG specific 4MATIC all-wheel drive system, the A 35 4MATIC accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds, and 5.2 seconds with the GLA 35 4MATIC.
The AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension and the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT in both vehicles guarantee a powerful yet comfortable drive.
Compact yet sporty: the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Sedan.
The locally-assembled Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC sedan has enhanced equipment compared to its fully imported predecessor. The Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC now comes equipped with the Parking package with a 360-degree camera, Head-up display, and AMG steering buttons that enhance the driving experience.
Additionally, the vehicle witnesses the addition of the KEYLESS-GO Comfort Package, Wireless Charging and the MBUX Interior Assistant for a new dimension of driver convenience.
On the exterior, the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC is complemented further by 19” AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels including a wider wheel arch for the AMG specific wheels. It is available in Polar White, Cosmos Black, Iridium Silver, Mountain Grey and Denim Blue.
The new Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC embraces power yet exemplifies luxury. On the inside, the vehicle is covered in optional ARTICO man-made leather or DINAMICA microfiber black and features highlights of the Aluminium AMG Design trim elements in black or silver.
The sporty interior continues with the AMG Performance steering wheel wrapped in nappa
leather with AMG steering wheel buttons, enjoyed further in the comfort of the sports seats with electrically adjustable front seats.
These seats are complemented by MANUFAKTUR seat belts in red, in line with the AMG personality.
Other notable key features include Burmester® surround sound system accompanied with the latest communications module (LTE) for the use of Mercedes me connect services which is complemented by the Mercedes-Benz emergency call system.
Mercedes-AMG GLA 35 4MATIC
The Mercedes-AMG GLA 35 4MATIC‘s assertive exterior design makes a clear statement and
reveals at first glance that it belongs to the distinctive AMG family. The signature AMG radiator grille with vertical louvres and the signature AMG front apron with front splitter and lateral louvres featuring silver chrome trim immediately underscores the self-assured, dynamic character of the Mercedes-AMG GLA 35 4MATIC.
Eye-catching features when viewed from the side are the 20-inch AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in matte black with high-sheen rim finish and the door panels with inserts in silver chrome.
The striking AMG rear apron with two round tailpipe trim elements, the AMG spoiler lip
and the slim, two-section rear lights lend an impression of breadth to the GLA’s rear.
The combination of sporty design and sophisticated details featured characteristic touches
include the sports seats in ARTICO man-made leather/DINAMICA microfiber in black with
contrasting top-stitching in red and red seat belts to the AMG Performance steering wheel in nappa leather with flattened bottom section and the AMG steering wheel buttons let you take the authentic racing feel to the extreme.
In the interior, the AMG hand comforter in the centre console, with integral buttons for operating the manual transmission mode, 3-stage ESP® and AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension for the driving dynamics functions already hints at the enormous technical potential, even when the vehicle is stationary.
