Mercedes-AMG also got their hands on the recently revealed and updated Mercedes-Benz A-Class hatchback. Like its less sporty sibling the new A-Class AMG range gets a number of exterior and interior updates, numerous new technologies.
Updated exterior styling
The revised front headlamps, the AMG-specific radiator grille and the new, round badge with the AMG emblem instead of the Mercedes star with a laurel wreath are some of the new styling features of the potent A-Class models. In addition, a new front apron and the power bulges familiar from the A 45 provide the A 35 with a new, coherent AMG face. The AMG look is underlined by the new wheel design, the rear spoiler lip, revised rear headlamps and the hallmark round exhaust pipes (twin-flow on the Mercedes-AMG A 45 S 4Matic+).
AMG Street Style Edition
For the market launch of the new Mercedes-AMG A-Class, a very special version of the Mercedes-AMG A 45 S 4MATIC+ will also be available exclusively and for a limited time – the AMG Street Style Edition. With this limited edition model customers get a mountain grey magno paint, edition-specific foiling with colour gradient in black/anthracite matt and colour accents in fluorescent orange, the Aerodynamics Package, 19-inch wheels in matt black, bright red brake callipers, AMG Night Package I and II and the stand-alone AMG fuel filler cap.
Updated interior styling and tech
As standard, the new Mercedes-AMG A-Class offers the AMG Performance steering wheel including AMG steering wheel buttons, with which the driver can control AMG-specific features such as the three-stage ESP or AMG Dynamics – without taking their hand off the steering wheel. In addition, the familiar AMG performance seat is now also available in the trendy sage grey colour.
The new Mercedes-AMG A-Class also benefits from the latest MBUX generation: Increased performance, the integration of the fingerprint sensor (expected to be available from the 1st quarter of 2023) for profile authorisation in the central display, more USB charging power and the new hallmark AMG screen design.
