There are some vehicles that the European market gets that we wish would make it to the United States – the all-new 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake is now one of them. Making its world debut, the new 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake will be available all across Europe in regular gasoline and diesel models along with the most powerful CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake.
“The new CLA Shooting Brake is the latest member of our successful family of compact models. The range, which now includes five models, covers an extremely wide spectrum: with the spacious B-Class sports tourer, the youthfully dynamic A-Class, the avant-garde CLA-Class Coupé and the compact GLA-Class SUV, we cater for a host of different customer wishes in this segment,” says Ola Källenius, Member of the Divisional Board Mercedes-Benz Cars, responsible for Marketing & Sales. “Like its big brother, the CLS Shooting Brake, the CLA Shooting Brake is targeted at active customers who are looking outside of the mainstream for a car that impresses with a high utility value.”
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake is powered by the outstanding 2.0 liter 4-cylinder turbo engine in the CLA45 AMG sedan. The engine makes 360 horsepower and is mated to a AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission that allows 0 to 62 mph to come in just 4.7 seconds.
“The continued high demand for our high-power compact models more than justifies our decision to launch another exceptionally dynamic high-performance car in the form of the new CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake,” remarked Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. “This means that Mercedes-AMG now boasts the most varied model line-up in this segment. The CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake serves up an enthralling blend of supreme power and dynamic handling on the one hand plus efficiency and everyday practicality on the other, all beautifully packaged within an extraordinary design.”
Sales of the new 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG will start in Janaury 2016 with deliveres to start later in March.
