New Mercedes-AMG CLA 35 Shooting Brake Coming With 302HP

The all-new Mercedes-AMG CLA 35 Shooting Brake has been spotted once again, this time in northern Europe where it is subjected to cold weather testing. The article has been updated with the new photos. (Update 3/14/2019)

The second-generation Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake can be admired these days at the Geneva Motor Show but the lineup is not yet complete.

The Mercedes-AMG versions are still in the works and one of them has been caught on public roads wearing a lot of camouflage. We’re talking about the “entry-level” CLA 35 Shooting Brake, which will slot above the current range-topper, the 225PS (222hp) CLA 250 Shooting Brake.

As with the already unveiled Mercedes-AMG A35 hot hatch, the CLA 35 Shooting Brake will pack a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine making 306 PS (302 hp) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. It will come equipped as standard with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system.

The new Mercedes-AMG CLA 35 should deliver similar performance figures to the A35, even though the Shooting Brake is slightly heavier. We can expect a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint of around 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) — electronically limited, obviously.

As the spy photos can attest, the added performance will be visible on the CLA 35 Shooting Brake’s body courtesy of a more aggressive aero kit with sportier bumpers and a slightly larger roof spoiler, as well as a lowered sports suspension, wider tires, and two big exhaust pipes.

The interior will see its fair share of upgrades as well including sports seats, a sports steering wheel, and dedicated trim. The CLA 35 will also get some unique driving modes including Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Individual, and Slippery.

Expect the Mercedes-AMG CLA 35 Shooting Brake to debut later this year, possibly at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
