The Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake has been officially unveiled as the fifth member on the ever growing family of front and all-wheel drive small vehicles.
Mercedes-Benz has finally pulled the wraps off the brand new body style of the CLA, the CLA Shooting Brake, after being spied numerous times over these past few months. The model in question is bringing no surprises, as you might have expected, because it’s the smaller version of the CLS Shooting Brake and coming with the same look as its four-door sedan brother.
The vehicle, which has been known internally as the X117, is riding on the same MFA-based platform which is used on the CLA Sedan, on the A-Class, on the B-Class and on the GLA, standing in at 4,630 mm in length, 1,777 mm in width and 1,435 mm in height. The rear headroom is now 40 mm more practical and the cargo space can store up to 495L, with the seats up, and 1,354L, with the seats folded.
The interior design of the model is identical to the one of the already available CLA Sedan, with bits and pieces being shared to the A-Class and GLA too. Four trim levels will become available for the CLA Shooting Brake, the Sport, the AMG Sport, the Engineered by AMG and the AMG. A special edition model is also available and this has been called the Orange Art.
Mercedes-Benz says that at the time of its launch, two diesels and four petrols will become available. The most efficient option will be the CLA200 CDI, being followed by the CLA220 CDI 4MAtic. The CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake will be introduced too, with the same 355 HP from the 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. No pricing details have been announced yet.
