The new CLA Shooting Brake: Space for Something New
The New CLA Shooting Brake from Mercedes-Benz has heightened the appeal of the curvaceous CLA and strengthened its New Generation Compact Car line-up with another unique and captivating model.
Following in the successful footsteps of the larger CLS Shooting Brake, the new model applies the striking sports tourer treatment to the already distinctive CLA.
On sale at Mercedes-Benz Hertfordshire from January 2015 with the first deliveries taking place in March, the new CLA Shooting Brake is certain to appeal to customers who are looking for something that is out of the mainstream but still require a vehicle that offers an abundance of space and luxurious comfort.
Flowing, curvaceous, sleek.
Standing out as much for its practicality as for its striking good looks, the new CLA Shooting Brake complements its flowing roofline, long bonnet and sleek side profile with a large tailgate, five seats and plenty of load space. Although boasting a phenomenally low and segment-leading aerodynamic Cd factor of 0.26, the new CLA Shooting Brake offers 4cm more rear headroom than the CLA Coupé, easier access for rear seat passengers and a load space of as much as 1,354 litres. At 1,328 mm the width of its luggage compartment exceeds that of its rivals and to increase the normal load area of 495 litres to 595 litres yet still retain room for five occupants, the rear seat backs can be moved into the more steeply raked ‘cargo’ position.
The well-equipped new CLA Shooting Brake launches with a choice of two diesel and three petrol engines, all of which feature the ECO start/stop function. The 4MATIC all-wheel drive system is also available from launch in the CLA 250 4MATIC and CLA 250 Sport 4MATIC, diesel variants in the form of the CLA 200 CDI 4MATIC and CLA 220 CDI following in September. The 360hp AMG version – the CLA 45 AMG – will arrive in March, combining blistering, race-bred performance with everyday usability and practicality.
