The V177 Mercedes-AMG A35 4Matic Sedan is arriving in Malaysia tomorrow, with Mercedes-Benz Malaysia taking to Instagram for a little tease beforehand. The W177 A-Class hatchback arrived in the country last October, and this is now the four-door’s turn. This also powers the W177 A35 4Matic hatch, with the added benefit of a boot that grows to 420 litres in the sedan.

This is the mid-range version powered by the German firm’s M260 turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with 306 hp at 5,800 rpm and 400 Nm of torque from 3,000 to 4,000 rpm; outputs are sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and an AMG Performance variable all-wheel drive system that can send up to 50% of torque to the rear wheels.

The setup propels the A35 Sedan from a standstill to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds with Race-Start launch control activated. Inside, we can expect the junior AMG sedan to feature the marque’s Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system, while the optional AMG Performance steering wheel sports a rotary dial that offers access to Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport + and Individual drive modes.

At its global launch, the A35 Sedan’s exterior had the optional AMG Aerodynamics Package, which adds a front splitter, front dive planes, enlarged rear spoiler, rear air vent shrouds and pronounced diffuser blades. Rolling stock meanwhile is a choice of either 18- or 19-inch wheels, which house cross-drilled brakes with four-pot, 350 mm disc brakes in front and 330 mm single-piston caliper disc brakes at the back.

For reference, the previous-generation CLA45 arrived in Malaysia as the junior AMG four-door wearing a price tag of RM408,888; there had not been a 35 AMG equivalent at the time. How much do you think this Mercedes-AMG A35 Sedan will cost at its Malaysian launch?
