Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake (2019–)

Model History

March 2019

Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake revealed at Geneva Motor Show

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's just one engine confirmed for the model so far: a four-cylinder petrol range-topper, badged the CLA 250. It has 225PS and 350Nm of torque and is paired with Mercedes-Benz's seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

By the time the CLA Shooting Brake goes on sale in the autumn, it'll be offered with a full range of petrol and diesel engines, as well as manual and automatic transmissions and two- or four-wheel-drive.

Naturally, the CLA Shooting Brake has the same tech-packed interior as the CLA Coupe and A-Class, including Mercedes-Benz's clever voice-controlled MBUX operating system that operates the infotainment and navigation system.

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.

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

The Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake has been revealed for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show. We'll find out more, including UK specifications and prices, ahead of it going on sale in September 2019.
