Mercedes-Benz has only just confirmed the existence of the Mercedes-AMG A35 4Matic (with the release of a couple of teaser images), and now the Stuttgart-based brand has shown more of its upcoming hot hatch in a fresh teaser clip.
The video, which the German automaker posted to various social media channels, gives us a glimpse of the A35’s grille, the rear badging and the steering wheel (which comes with paddle-shifters) as it blasts along a winding road.
The footage also shows the black rear spoiler, aggressive front bumper treatment (complete with a multitude of gloss-black aero elements) and AMG-branded brake callipers, plus the vehicle’s digital instrument cluster.
The Mercedes-AMG A35 4Matic is expected to make its public debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show in October, and will slot in below the upcoming A45 as the “entry-level” AMG. It will thus take on the likes of the Audi S3 Sportback, BMW M140i and Volkswagen Golf R.
The German brand has not revealed any more information about the newest member of the AMG family, but various reports suggest the A35 will be powered by the same turbocharged 2,0-litre four-cylinder as the A45 (and employ a seven-speed dual-clutch, too), but detuned to somewhere in the region of 240 kW.
