Mercedes-Benz AMG A Class Design
Differentiating the AMG models over the standard Mercedes-Benz A Class are the more prominent AMG-specific radiator grilles and body kits. The twin-louvred radiator grille, front apron with flics on the air intakes, a front splitter, and silver chrome trim on the Mercedes-AMG A 35 are all hallmark features of the Mercedes-AMG design. Other AMG touches include the optionally available 19-inch multi-spoke wheels, and the AMG side skirts.
The AMG Edition 1 introduces AMG Night package which adds high-gloss black elements to the exterior, black chrome-plated tailpipe trim and heat-insulating dark tinted windows from the B-pillar. Also included is the AMG Aerodynamic Package with downforce increasing detachable body parts and a fixed AMG rear wing.
The Sedan’s classic 3-box design with short front and rear overhangs accentuates its sporty proportion. Wider wheel arches and AMG apron with wider diffuser element emphasize the visual width of the rear. The Mercedes-AMG A 45 S is clearly distinguishable from the Mercedes-AMG A 35 and the standard AMG Line models by its strikingly sporty design.
The distinctive AMG-specific radiator grille with vertical slats, aggressively styled front apron, front wings which are far wider than those of the Mercedes-AMG A 35, and the bonnet with power domes make the Mercedes-AMG A 45 S really stand out.
On top of that, the wide rear end incorporates aerodynamic elements, including a diffuser-look design with 4 vertical fins, AMG spoiler lip, and a striking AMG roof spoiler, punctuated by the dual twin tailpipe trims measuring 90 mm in diameter. Optional 19-inch cross-spoke forged wheels and red-painted brake calipers round off the more powerful package.
