2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake Is Almost As Expensive As The C-Class

Mercedes-Benz has started taking orders for the new generation CLA Shooting Brake in Germany, where deliveries will commence in September.

Offered with a choice of seven powertrains at first, the base CLA 180 has an MSRP of €32,213.30 ($36,097), which makes it only €782.45 ($877) less expensive than the C-Class Sedan. Maybe it’s not an apples to apples comparison, but the sporty estate does get quite close to the bigger, and more upmarket, saloon…
