Currently, the German automaker – the company Mercedes-Benz offers an updated family of cars A-class, which consists of a sedan, 3- and 5-door hatchback, and their charged modifications from the sports division of Mercedes-AMG. By the way in the latter there will be at least two cars – AMG A35 and more “hot” AMG A45.
The test prototype of the 5-door hatchback AMG A35 was recently noticed by foreign automobile journalists. The German novelty, which is designed to make a worthy competition Audi S3, is still under the layer of camouflage film, which almost completely covers the body of the car.

For the A35, the power of this engine will be equal to 335 horsepower (the maximum of torque 450 Nm). Well, a more powerful version of the hatchback AMG A45 will get a motor with more than 400 hp.
