Mercedes-Benz C-Class: Check specifications, price, pictures

Mercedes-Benz India has said that the new 2018 update for the new C-Class in the biggest one till date with 6500 new parts.

Serving as the new entry point into the AMG range, the A35 is the first in a two-pronged performance A-Class family, with the hotter 'A45' likely to follow in the coming months.

The A35 employs Affalterbach's seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with gear ratios configured for "very spontaneous acceleration in all speed ranges". The result is a sprint from zero to 100 km/h in a claimed 4,7 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h.

With great power comes great responsibility, which is why the engineers have fitted the A35 with beefy 350-mm front and 330-mm rear disc brakes.

As mentioned, the A35 gets a beefy styling package that includes 18-inch alloys, AMG Line front apron and twin-louvre grille, larger rear diffuser and tailgate lip spoiler.

Passive dampers are standard, though buyers can option the new entry-level AMG model with an adaptive damping system that provides three different levels of stiffness. An AMG exhaust system has an automatically controlled flap for sound variation with the drive program.

Under the skin, there's a MacPherson front suspension setup, with a four-link system at the rear for enhanced "stability and agility". Now offered only in diesel option, this new update is claimed to be the biggest in the history of C-Class and with about 6,500 new components, which is more than half the number of components in an average C-Class sedan.

Opting for the red interior accents also gets you red piping on the microfibre cabin trim element and a red ring for the air vent nozzles. The steering wheel has touch control button and the AMG Track Pace system is a data logger for track use. Yet perhaps the coolest feature for some will be the MBUX Augmented Reality function can display the racing lines of stored race tracks on the central screen or (optional) head-up display system.
