Mercedes’ fourth “high-performance compact car” is the CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake. It’s pretty much the same car as the regular CLA 45, but with extra rear headroom and cargo space, featuring the same 355 hp (360 PS) 2.0-liter turbo engine as before, along with all-wheel drive.
It gives up one tenth to 100 km/h / 62 mph to the sedan, achieving a claimed time of 4.7 seconds.
As for efficiency, it returns an identical 6.9 l/100km (34 mpg US) to both the CLA45 sedan, as well as the A45.
The rest is standard CLA45 fare, with the exception that the CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake, just like the non-AMG car, can be had as a OrangeArt Edition special model.
It adds “splashes of orange in the AMG radiator grille, on the exterior mirrors and in the rear apron trim together with the Night package featuring black design features and chrome tailpipes produce a stunning overall effect,” while the “colour-coordinated highlight rings around the bi-xenon headlamps make them stand out in spectacular style, too.”
