Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake (2019) Review

Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake (2019) At A Glance

+Five-door estate closely related to new A-Class and CLA Coupe. Tech-packed interior. Bigger boot opening than before.

-On sale September 2019.

A five-door estate, closely related to the A-Class and CLA Coupe, the 2019 CLA Shooting Brake sits in a class of its own - there are no estate versions of the Audi A3 or BMW 1 Series.

There'll be a range of petrol and diesel engines available as well as a choice of manual or automatic transmissions and two- or four-wheel drive. There'll be a range-topping CLA 250 model with a 225PS petrol engine and 350Nm of torque.

Technology includes Mercedes-Benz's clever voice-controlled MBUX operating system controlling the infotainment and navigation system. 

Thanks to its improved camera and radar systems, the CLA can monitor the road up to 500m ahead, giving it partially-autonomous capability.

Described by its German manufacturer as a 'sports car with load space', the CLA Shooting Brake is longer and wider than its predecessor, with 505-litres of boot space - up 10 litres from before. Significantly, though, the 871mm wide boot opening is considerably bigger than the old CLA Shooting Brake.
