Mercedes-Benz is playing hard and together with the new CLA Shooting Brake, the German manufacturer revealed the performance version CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake.
After the A 45 AMG, CLA 45 AMG and GLA 45 AMG models, the freshly-revealed CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake becomes the fourth high-performance compact car released by Mercedes-Benz.
The range-topping Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake will delight its customers with the familiar four-cylinder, 2.0-litre turbocharged gasoline engine, capable of delivering 360 hp at 6,000 rpm and 450 Nm between 2,250 and 5,000 rpm.
All its resources are then sent to a 4MATIC system via a seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT gearbox, solution which enables the good-looking wagon to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, while the top speed has been electronically limited to 250 km/h. In that respect, Mercedes-Benz announces a combined fuel consumption of 6.9 l/100 km.
On the outside, the CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake benefits from an enhanced look which previews its dynamic character. For that, Mercedes-Benz designers used a splitter, large front air intakes, a roof spoiler, a sports exhaust system with chromed twin tailpipes and 18 or 19-inch light-alloy wheels.
In terms of technology, the CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake is packed with safety systems like the ADAPTIVE BRAKE, ATTENTION ASSIST, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS, ESP curve dynamic assist and bi-xenon headlamps.
The dynamic qualities of the new CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake are also reflected inside, where the performance version received ARTICO leather seats / DINAMICA microfibre with red contrasting stitching and red designo seat belts. In addition, there’s a flat-bottomed sport steering wheel with paddle shifters waiting to be handled by clients, while the finishing touches are given by the longitudinal aluminium trim and five galvanised air vents.
Howerver, customers are able to lend their CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake an even more individual touch by opting for the Exterior Carbon-Fibre package, the AMG Night package or the AMG Exclusive package.
Deliveries of the new CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake are set to start in March 2015.
