Mercedes-Benz's latest A-Class has already arrived in hatchback and then guises, and soon we will see another A-class variant revealed this October at the 2018 Paris Auto Show, and this will be warmer than anything yet.
According to a report from Indian Autos Blog a new Mercedes-AMG A35 hatchback will make its world debut in Paris. Dominik Greuel, Mercedes-AMG's marketing communications manager, confirmed with the publication, the A35 hatch will show his face in Paris, although he did not give up any other information on the car.
The A35 will probably boast a 2.0 liter turbocharged inline-4 with around 335 horsepower and 322 pound-torque torque. All-wheel drive is a given, but the car's party trick can be an electric compressor to build boost pressure at low rpm. The A35 will act as the new Mercedes-AMG vehicle, while the 45 (or possibly 50) model will make things up.
He also revealed the warmest of AMG A-Class cars will be divided into two variants as well; We knew earlier that the A35 and A45 would debut. Greuel said that AMG would launch both a 45 and 45S model, and we suspect 45 will boast up to 400 hp or more. 45S will apparently be the more aggressive of the two, and IAB said that 45S could get the most powerful version of 2.0-liter turbo-4.

Do not look for the hot shutter button in the United States. Instead, Mercedes will grace the US with A-Classes then to compliment the coupe-like CLA. And the A35 will join its more pedestrian counterpart in its form too. The same 335 hp 2.0-liter turbo-4 should sit under the hood.
The A35 hatchback would be sold in Europe in early 2019, while the 45 and 45S debut with each other later in 2019.
