MB says the updated A‑Class retains its youthful and dynamic character, yet it is also more grown up and comfortable than ever. Dealerfloor reported on the new A-Class soon after its launch (https://dealerfloor.co.za/product-news/new-life-for-mercs-a-class-hatch-sedan).

The AMG versions will consist of the A 35 AMG 4MATIC and A 45 S 4MATIC+. Customers can still choose between the hatchback and the sedan variants for the A 35, while the A 45 S continues to be available exclusively as a hatchback.

As standard, the new Mercedes-AMG A-Class offers the AMG Performance steering wheel, including AMG steering wheel buttons, with which drivers can control AMG-specific features such as the three-stage ESP or AMG Dynamics – without taking their hands off the steering wheel.

The Mercedes-AMG A 35 is equipped with a 48-volt auxiliary power supply and belt-driven starter-generator (RSG) and achieves an output of 225 kW with a maximum torque of 400 Nm. As a mild hybrid, the RSG supports agility with 10 kW more power at start-up.

The Hyper-hatch A 45 S 4MATIC+ develops considerably more power than the A 35 AMG variant. A total output of 310 kW and 500 Nm from the 2-litre four-cylinder turbo engine, allows for a 0-100 km/h sprint time of just 3.9 seconds, according to the manufacturer.

The latest pricing for the complete A-Class range is:

Hatchback: A 200 (R791 550).

Sedan: A 200 (R846 550) and the A 200 d (R916 200).
