Neither the NHTSA nor the IIHS has performed a safety review of the AMG A35 Sedan or its civilian sibling, the A-Class Sedan, but we expect it to return a decent safety rating when it is eventually tested.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
Each 2021 Mercedes-AMG A35 comes standard with eight airbags, including thorax/pelvic bags and knee airbags for the driver and front passenger. Brake assist, stability control, and traction control are a given, as are LED headlights and a reverse camera. Driver assistance features include crosswind assist, blind-spot assist, and attention assist, but these are rudimentary and the best features need to be paid for. Optional safety tech on offer includes active steering assist, active speed-limit assist, lane-change assist, lane-keep assist, rear cross-traffic assist, and a surround-view camera system. Rear-seat side airbags can also be selected, taking the total count to ten.

The 2021 A35 has been affected by two recalls: the more recent one was for a multimedia system software issue that could cause the display to remain black, affecting the rearview camera system. The other was due to faulty ISOFIX anchorage points for child seats. Other than these blips, reliability seems decent. Mercedes-Benz covers the A35 with a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty, along with corrosion protection and powertrain cover for the same number of years and distance. A four-year/50,000-mile roadside assistance plan is also included, but there's no free maintenance to speak of.
