Compared with the A 45 S 4Matic+, which has launched a Street Style Edition package to show the extraordinary momentum of street dominance, and the A 180, which is upgraded with the standard AMG Line appearance package, the A 35 4Matic, the second brother in performance, has a minor facelift in the A-Class car series Among them, it seems to be the one that seems to have changed the least, but in fact, this car has undergone considerable evolution in terms of power system, and it can give people a refreshing feeling in terms of driving experience.

The A 35 4Matic, a member of the Mercedes-AMG performance family, in this minor facelift project of the A-Class car series, in addition to the more simple and refined new LED headlights and taillights, the main appearance is still the same. In the original style, the exclusive AMG aerodynamic package is matched with 19-inch AMG five-spoke double-rib wheels, presenting a low-key and unassuming performance momentum. In addition to the bright sunshine yellow paint, the test drive car also uses an additional The AMG night color kit blackens many decorative strips, car name emblems, wheel rims and rearview mirrors on the whole car, bringing a unique visual experience with strong contrast.

The exterior part follows the footsteps of the facelifted models, mainly replacing with new-style LED headlights and taillights.
The test drive car uses the AMG night kit, and the water tank guard and front air dam are completely blackened.
The 19-inch AMG five-spoke double-rib wheels and the nameplate of the front fender are also treated with matte black.
At the rear of the car, you can see the spoiler spoiler that provides high-speed downforce, which is also the identification of the performance family.

The interior part has also changed little, but the most impressive thing is to upgrade the standard AMG high-performance Nappa leather flat-bottomed sports car steering wheel that is the same as the A 45 S. The exclusive control buttons under the spokes can quickly switch driving modes and track control. Vehicle settings such as AMG Dynamic dynamic mode control allow the driver to adjust at any time according to changes in the road ahead, which is very convenient; The car is additionally equipped with an interconnected navigation kit (including the original 3D Chinese satellite navigation, real-time traffic information and other functions), MBUX augmented reality navigation function, self-illuminating door sill trim, panoramic electric glass sunroof, head-up display, MBUX intelligent control and other equipment, The level of technological luxury is even higher.

The interior is in line with the A 45 S, and the steering wheel of the AMG high-performance flat-bottomed sports car is directly upgraded.
The new AMG exclusive decorative panel is quite unique and eye-catching, and it is even more gorgeous when matched with the interior ambient light.
The mode setting can be quickly switched through the steering wheel control knob, or personalized settings can be made.

The small facelift A 35 4Matic is still equipped with a 2.0L straight-four gasoline turbo engine with a maximum output of 306hp/40.8kgm, and a 48V light oil-electric system that can provide an additional 14hp of horsepower assistance. At the same time, it will be equipped with an AMG Speedshift DCT dual-clutch automatic transmission The gearbox is upgraded from the seven-speed to the same eight-speed configuration as the A 45 S. Although the performance data such as 0-100km/h acceleration of 4.7 seconds and electronic top speed of 250km/h remain unchanged, the average fuel consumption of the Energy Bureau has increased from 10.9km/L To 12.6km/L, it can be seen that the original factory is still strengthening the overall performance in order to maintain the passionate character that AMG should have in the current environment where global emission regulations are becoming stricter.

The upgraded eight-speed automatic transmission makes the overall power response smoother, and the fuel consumption performance has also improved.
The output of the 2.0L straight-four gasoline turbo engine remains unchanged, and a 48V light oil-electric system is added.

With the assistance of the 48V light oil-electric system, the minor facelift A 35 4Matic has not only improved the vibration suppression when the engine is automatically turned on and off, but more importantly, the hysteresis that was easy to feel at the start and initial acceleration in the past has been significantly reduced. The system will intelligently adjust according to the different ways of pedaling the accelerator. The flexible allocation must first use electric power to drive the vehicle to accelerate smoothly, or wait for the middle and rear speeds to explode together with the engine power, giving people a wider range of available power and easier control. As for The upgraded eight-speed automatic transmission also helps to control the rotational speed at 2500~4000rpm and the torque output is flat, ensuring that it can provide enough full and vigorous acceleration force every time you step on the accelerator and go out of a corner. It is a pity that the first three gears It still has the same minor problems as the seven-speed automatic manual that is prone to frustration, and it still needs to be more patient when driving at slow speeds in urban areas.

Test drive experience ~ performance improvement, enthusiasm remains the same

From the same output and performance data, it is not difficult to see that the power system upgrade of the minor facelift A 35 4Matic is mainly to meet the requirements of emission regulations. For consumers who use instead of transportation and focus on practicality, it is a good thing.
