Mercedes-Benz C-Class launched in India at Rs 40 lakh

Mercedes-AMG Project One hypercar testing- disguised

Following its appearance on the new fourth-generation A-class hatchback, the new 35 badge is also planned to grace successor models to the CLA, CLA Shooting Brake, GLA as well as the newly-unveiled A-class saloon and upcoming GLB compact SUV, in a move that will provide a new six-model strong entry-level range for Mercedes-Benz's performance sub-brand. It features a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine with an output of 306 hp and 400 Nm of torque. Mercedes fits the auto with a high-strength, lightweight die-cast aluminum crankcase. The auto will feature a twin-turbo V-8 with at least 550 horsepower on tap, so we certainly have no qualms about the move.

The A35 employs Affalterbach's seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with gear ratios configured for "very spontaneous acceleration in all speed ranges". The 4MATIC system can spend power to the front wheels only or split it 50:50 between front and back wheels. A range of Sport modes are available through AMG Dynamic Select including "Slippery", "Comfort", "Sport", "Sport +" and "Individual". The system also gets the NGT 5.5 smartphone integration system that allows you to connect your device via Bluetooth to use telephony and music functions. Further to that, a three-mode Adaptive Damping system will be available as an option.

Stopping power is taken care of via 350mm discs at the front squeezed by four-piston monoblock calipers, and rearwards you'll find 330mm rotors and single-piston sliding calipers.

Those tailpipes are connected to an AMG exhaust system with an automatically-controlled flap modulating the sound from "balanced to powerful" depending on drive mode. The auto runs on redesigned 17-inch alloys with the option to upsize to 18-inch ones.

Inside, the vehicle has special seats for support and the MBUX multimedia system.

Changes to insides include a 12.3 inch colour instrument cluster display that can be customised to show three layouts: Classic, Sport and Progressive. The steering wheel has touch control button and the AMG Track Pace system is a data logger for track use. It's unclear when/if a United States launch will happen.
