2019 Mercedes-AMG A35 4Matic Unveiled
Following a round of teasers, Mercedes-AMG has finally revealed its latest fire-breathing hatchback - the 2019 A35 4Matic.
“Body shell, suspension, all-wheel drive, transmission, driving programs, fine tuning - every detail has been designed for maximum driving dynamics without compromising on everyday comfort,” Merc announces.
The main party piece can be found under the hood, where Mercedes stuffed the hot-to-trot A-Class with a turbocharged four-cylinder making as much as 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Properly applied, its enough to send the A35 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in a scorching 4.7 seconds, while top speed clocks in at 155 mph. The boost snail is a twin-scroll unit for sharper response.
Routing the muscle is a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which feeds an AMG-tuned, electro-mechanical 4Matic AWD system. The torque split can vary between front-wheel drive only, to a 50:50 split front-to-back.
Keeping it shiny side up are MacPherson struts up front and a four-link for the rear. There’s plenty of aluminum to keep it all light, while a set of adaptive dampers can be had for a little extra outlay. Large four-pot brakes clamp the front, with brake rotors that measure in at 13.8 inches in front and 13 inches in the rear.
The A35 looks the part of a hooligan thanks to AMG’s classic styling chops, which includes a unique grille in the nose, aero-optimized 18-inch wheels in the corners, and a large spoiler mated to a pronounced diffuser in the rear.
Inside the cabin, you’ll find the latest MBUX infotainment goodies, plus AMG’s signature upholstery treatment and a flat-bottom steering wheel. A fully digital instrument display provides the feedback.
Look for the 2019 Mercedes-AMG A35 4Matic to strut its stuff early next month at the 2018 Paris Motor Show.
Mercedes-AMG A35 reveals its wing in new teaser
Mercedes-Benz seems to enjoy playing mind games with their fans and customers, testing their ability to wait for their upcoming releases while putting out a number of revealing sneak peeks. This is the case with their new A35 AMG which will be shown off to the public for the first time at the Paris Motor Show that kicks off on October 4th.
With each new Mercedes-AMG launch, you really have to take a moment to soak in all the details in order to appreciate the job done by the people in Affalterbach. That’s why each new image that Mercedes-Benz leaks out of their new hot hatch, the buzzing A35 AMG, keeps the hype alive as we look forward to a peek inside.
In the latest couple of images released by the German automaker, we can feast our eyes with both rear-end view and a view of the nose, albeit only half of each – hopefully they don’t have a good half and a bad half! What we get is what we’ve been expecting with Mercedes beefing up the body kit of their current A-Class with bigger air inlets and a host of purposeful winglets on either side. It’s the same story at the rear where we get dual exhausts, a diffuser for underbody aerodynamics and a generously-sized wing almost identical to that on the outgoing A45.
Mercedes will also unveil a new A45 early next year but, until then, we have to contend with its little brother who’s looking to scare away its neighbors: the likes of Audi’s S3, BMW’s M140i or Volkswagen’s Golf R. Granted, you’ll have a hard time telling the two apart if you don’t glimpse of their front ends, since the A45 will feature the Panamerica grille while the A35 is stuck with this twin-blade design we’ve become familiar with on lower-tier Mercedes models.

A Cheaper Mercedes GT Coupe Is Here
Mercedes has unveiled the GT 43, an entry-level model that will sit below the GT 53, GT 63, and GT 63 S that were unveiled earlier this year. The GT 43 has the same engine as the GT 53, albeit with lower power. How much lower, you ask? Well, it’s still good enough to sweep you off of your feet.

12 Things You Have To Know About The New 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE
Mercedes-Benz is going on an all-out SUV onslaught. Not only did it reveal the fascinating 2020 EQC electric SUV only a week ago, but now, the company is showing us the first photographs and revealing facts about the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE - a mid-sized luxury SUV that evolved all the way from 1997 when Mercedes-Benz started the trend with the ML. Honestly, I liked the ML name the most, and I’d prefer if that name remained the official designation for the car. Nevertheless, I made my peace with the GLE and now, I find the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE to be the best ML yet. As with every Mercedes-Benz, even before the company unveils the new car, we all have certain expectations. First, it has to be cutting edge in some sense. Secondly, it has to look appealing. Thirdly, it has to pack technology like no other similar car on earth.
This is a living hell for Mercedes-Benz engineers as the whole world has basically the same expectations. Yet, they deliver. Like every single time.
I compiled here a list of reasons that tell you why everyone should be amazed by the new 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE, a car so advanced that only five years ago we’d probably think it’s a piece of alien technology. Be it Borg, Worlon, or Mon Calamari.
Before Mercedes-Benz officially pulls the sheets off it at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, learn here about many extraordinary features of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz ML. Sorry, I meant the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE. An honest mistake.
Watch the Mercedes-AMG E53 Mild Hybrid Make a Gut-Churning Top-Speed Run
The Mercedes-AMG E 53 Coupe isn’t a whippersnapper the way performance cars are. But, it’s far from a tortoise, either. The AMG E 53 Coupe is surprisingly quick on its feet. It’s capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, and while its 158-mph top speed isn’t anything to write home about, it’s still capable of putting a lot of cars in its segment in their proper places. A big part of the AMG E 53 Coupe’s performance capabilities rests on its powertrain. It has a twin-turbocharged, inline-six and a mild hybrid setup with EQ Boost that combine to produce a total of 450 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. All that power — and the resulting crackling sound it produces — was on full display in this video of the coupe running roughshod over the Autobahn.
This Mercedes C-Class with an EQC Face is a Bit Awkward
Mercedes’ new EQ brand just debuted with the EQC, an all-electric alternative to the compact GLC crossover. Sporting its own design language, especially up front, the EQC will soon be joined by other EV siblings, including a full-size sedan. Whether the EQC’s high-tech face will make it onto other vehicles remains unknown, but automotive digital designer Kleber Silva decided to see how the SUV’s front fascia looks on the popular C-Class sedan. The result is somewhat awkward.
Is this the upcoming Mercedes AMG GT R Black Series?
Introduced in 2015, the Mercedes-AMG GT is currently available in a variety of models with output ranging from the 456 horsepower of the base model to the impressive 577 horses of the range-topping GT R. But AMG isn’t stopping here. According to recent rumors, a Black Series model is underway, and we just received the first spy shots of the sports car.
2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE Unveiled
Mercedes-Benz just spilled the beans on its brand-new 2020 GLE, revealing specs and pics of the luxury SUV’s latest and greatest bits and pieces. Let’s begin with the exterior, where we find the GLE is now even more SUV-like than before. Complementing the new look is a host of chrome embellishments, while intelligent LED lighting illuminates the way forward. The new looks is also functional, as the aero now slices through the atmosphere with a Cd of 0.29, a figure Merc claims as best-in-class. Under the flared arches, you’ll find wheel sizing ranging between 19 and 22 inches in diameter.
The latest GLE also adds 3 inches to the wheelbase, which helps substantially with regard to passenger room. New for 2020 is six-way electric adjustability for passengers in the second row, plus 12.3-inch infotainment screens as standard with crisp 720p resolution. What’s more, the onboard systems now support gesture control, and offer semi-autonomous features like Active Stop-and-Go Assist, Active Brake Assist, and Cross-Traffic Assist.
Under the hood, the base model GLE comes equipped with a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder, which is turbocharged to produce upwards of 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Next in line is a turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder making 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. If you want even more of the go stuff, Merc is also sure to release the high-powered 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 very shortly. A 4Matic AWD system makes the grip.
Finally, the GLE comes with new E-Active Body Control active suspension system with a mild-hybrid 48-volt power source to keep it all shiny side up.
Look for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE to make its big public debut at the Paris Motor Show this coming October, with an on-sale date slated for sometime next year.
Here’s the 2019 Mercedes GLE Before You’re Supposed to See It
The Mercedes-Benz GLE debuts in less than a month at the Paris Motor Show, but you get to see it even sooner thanks to these leaked images courtesy of Russian outlet Autoreview.ru. This specific model looks like it’s on its way for transport, possibly to Paris in preparation for its world debut. It features very little camo or padding, with nothing more than white tape on the headlights and taillights and some tape covering the emblems. Mercedes can try to hide it, but we know what this thing really is. It does resemble that resent teaser image that was released, but it also looks a lot more like a facelift than a generational model if you actually look at it closely.
Be that as it may, Mercedes seems to have a lot planned for the 2019 GLE. The interior should get a fairly healthy update while all engine options should be offered with at least a hint of extra power. We expect to see a two-speed transfer case on all-wheel-drive models, but rear-wheel-drive models should also be available. Don’t hold out for a manual transmission, though, as word has it that the 2019 Mercedes GLE will only be offered with a nine-speed automatic. The new model should incorporate off-road suspension equipment, at least as an option, as Mercedes really has to keep up with Range Rover this time around. With that in mind, expect entry-level models to boast around 310 horsepower from a 3.5-liter V-6, while the range-topping AMG GLE63 will pump out incredible amounts of power from a hand-built, 4.0-liter, V-8.
Anyway, for now, go ahead and enjoy the few pictures we have in the gallery below. You never know when Mercedes will request the be removed so don’t waste any time and be sure to check out our speculative review on the 2019 Mercedes GLE and the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 to help scratch the itch while you wait for the Paris Motor Show to kick off.
