Deep creases along each side panel emphasis the Shooting Brake's streamlined body shape. It has a low, athletic stance and sporty twin rectangular exhaust pipes. The heated rear screen and automatic rain-sensitive windscreen wipers also show the function underneath the eye-catching style.
Enter the cabin to discover a well-lit and relaxing environment in which to drive or travel. The chequered cloth and leather upholstery over the sports seats is another nod to the Mercedes-Benz racing heritage.
For CLA models, the equipment levels are: Sport, AMG Sport, Engineered by AMG, and OrangeArt. A high benchmark is set by the Sport model, which arrives kitted out with cruise control, two-zone automatic climate control, an analogue instrument cluster and more. Select the AMG Sport model or above, and the interior will also include sports pedals and Dinamica microfibre upholstery.
Performance and efficiency
Depending on the trim level selected, you have a choice of potent Mercedes-Benz petrol and diesel engines. The majority of engines couple with a seven-speed automatic transmission, and a six-speed manual option is offered with certain versions. Power peaks at 177bhp for the entry-level car, and a 211bhp petrol engine can be specified for the Engineered by AMG trim.
In every incarnation, the efficiency of the Shooting Brake is notably high. Eco start/stop technology is part of the precise engineering, saving fuel every time the car is idling. The diesel versions use a Diesel Particulate Filter to reduce CO2 emissions, and economy reaches up to 67.3mpg combined.
Safety and technology
CLA-Class models have all achieved the five-star standard in Euro NCAP safety tests. In the Shooting Brake, performance is always balanced by protection. The equipment list includes airbags at the front, side, head and driver's knee, adaptive braking assistance, ESP with cornering, crash sensors and forward-thinking Collision Prevention Assist Plus.
Other in-car technologies provide communication, music and added convenience. To help maintain the driver's focus, the seven-inch colour touchscreen has been carefully positioned at the centre console. Hear crystal clear audio through the six-speaker music system, or stay in touch with the integrated Bluetooth connectivity.
