Mercedes Reveals and Details CLA Shooting Brake

Hardly anybody will buy the new CLA Shooting Brake for the extra space and rear headroom it offers – most will sign their name up for one because of its looks. Mercedes boasts that with it it’s created “a whole new class of vehicle,” even though we don’t see what they’re on about.

The CLA Shooting Brake’s boot has grown from 471 liters with the rear seats up to 495 liters. Should you fold them down, space increases to 1354 liters, although you can simply move them in the more steeply raked “cargo position,” and that grants you a total volume of 595 liters.

Engines available are two diesel and three petrol units. The two diesels are the 200 and 220 CDI, both using the same 2.1-liter engine with either 136 or 177 hp. The petrol engine range kicks off with the 180 model, which uses a 1.6-liter turbo engine with 122 hp, while at the other end of the scales there’s the 250 which can also be had with all-wheel drive – it uses a 2.0-liter turbo engine that pumps out 211 hp and can reach 100 km/h / 62 mph in under 7 seconds.

At launch, Mercedes will be offering a limited edition OrangeArt Edition model. It uses “orange trim in conjunction with selected equipment features, such as the AMG Line and Night package, (that) emphasise the sporty flair of this model. A distinctive sporty look is also ensured by 45.7 cm (18-inch) AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels, painted in black with an orange rim flange, together with orange highlights on the front and rear aprons. The bi-xenon headlamps feature orange highlight rings.”
