Mercedes-Benz has released a new commercial with the brand new CLA Shooting Brake in which the F1 driver Nico Rosberg is behind the wheel of the more practical version of the CLA.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake has been around since autumn, 2014, and it was brought to a lot of events across the globe, including the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), in Detroit. The model in question is 4.6 meters long and it is offering 25 more liters of cargo space, compared to its four-door coupe brother, to 495 liters. This can be raised to 1,354 liters, with the rear seats folded.
The more practical version of the CLA is riding on the same MFA (Modular Front Architecture), along with the 4-door CLA, with the A-Class, the B-Class and the GLA crossover. This is having a huge advantage over the competition considering the fact that neither BMW nor Audi is offering anything similar for the 1-Series and the A3. The CLA Shooting Brake is coming in four trim levels, the Sport, the AMG Sport, the Engineered by AMG and the AMG, along with a special edition named the Orange Art.
The engine lineup in the model is carried over from the regular CLA and it includes the CLA 200 CDI, the CLA 220 CDI, the CLA 200 and the CLA 250. We also have to mention the range topping CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake, which is getting the same 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine under its hood, which is capable of producing 360 HP (265 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.
