Mercedes is introducing a sibling of A45 – A35, the cheapest model in AMG series. Mercedes can’t afford everything as A45 for the A35. It is confirmed to be a new entry - level hatchback competing with the Volkswagen Golf R.

Mercedes-AMG will introduce a new entry-level model when the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class goes on sale, the head of AMG has revealed.

Currently the closest thing to a baby AMG model is the A250 AMG, a car that has merely been breathed on by the Affalterbach tuning house, but the new model will be a full AMG effort, and will likely be pitted against the Audi S3 and BMW M140i, while the A45 will continue to take on heavyweights like the RS3, M2 and Volkswagen Golf R.

Official details of the car are scarce, but AMG CEO Tobias Moers recently told Top Gear magazine that the new car will be called the A35. As the name suggests, it'll slot in below the new A45 AMG in the brand's hot hatch range.

Hamilton: Mercedes raised the bar

  Hamilton: Mercedes raised the bar Lewis Hamilton has praised Mercedes' strength and predicted they will only get stronger in 2018 for their next title defence.Hamilton ultimately won his fourth championship with two races to spare but Mercedes were pushed for the majority of the season by a revitalised Ferrari, with Sebastian Vettel leading the standings until September.

At the time of market launch in June, the G-Class will be available at an entry - level price of €107,040.50 (price in Germany, incl. 2018 Mercedes S Class Coupe - NEW Full Review AMG S63 4MATIC + Interior Exterior Infotainment - Продолжительность: 17:11 MercBenzKing 4 682 627

As the debut of the 2018 A-Class is nearing, Mercedes ' grip on the official information is loosening. It turns out the entry - level hot hatch that we all presumed was the A40 is going to be called the A35. 10 photos.

Power is expected to be around the 340bhp mark; slightly down on the outgoing 376bhp A45 — that car's replacement will produce more than 400bhp.

Four-wheel-drive is also set feature, something that was only an option on the A250. The A35 will likely be less extreme in the looks department too in order to distinguish between both, so expect no wings or flaps on this one.

Prices are unknown, but given what the current model lineup looks like, we can make an educated guess. The current A45 AMG costs about £40,000, while the new one will reportedly cost closer to £50,000. Meanwhile, the A250 AMG is priced just short of £30,000; so expect the A35 to cost somewhere between £35,000-£40,000.

The new A45 AMG will hit showrooms in 2019, and the A35 won't be far behind, so we've still got a fair bit of time to wait unfortunately.
