    • Introducing the 2020 W177 Mercedes-AMG A35 4Matic Sedan with a 300 horsepower M264 2.0 liter turbo I4

      What Mercedes-Benz is doing is becoming a bit confusing. You might look at the new W177 generation A-Class Sedan and mistake it for the new CLA-Class. In fact, the CLA-Class and A-Class Sedan share the same platform.


      The A-Class sedan obviously borrows from the CLS-Class styling wise. Mercedes states this style of 'predator' styling is limited to the A-Class sedan and CLS-Class four-door coupe.

      The design works and what is important is that Mercedes updated the M264 2.0 liter four-cylinder to output 300 horsepower. Obviously an AMG M133 this is not and it is not a real AMG powerlpant but the M264 makes some good power

      Output is similar to the Volkswagen EA888 2.0 you see in the Audi S3 which is no coincidence. As is the all wheel drive and dual clutch drivetrain.

      Will there be an A45 AMG sedan? Probably. Will this cause overlap with the CLA45 AMG? Probably.

      Mercedes sure seems to be trying to squeeze out every variant they can and things are starting to blur together.

      Will the A35 be a hit? We will know when we get pricing closer to its for sale date later in the year.

        No, you have the second generation C118 CLA on the market now.
