Mercedes Benz CLA Shooting Brake (MY-2015)

The new Mercedes Benz CLA Shooting Brake will go on sale in January 2015, with the first cars arriving with customers in March 2015.

The CLA Shooting Brake takes the four-door coupe edition and turns it in to a more attractive proposition – although the same length and identical wheelbase not surprisingly it can carry more luggage at 495 litres with the rear seats in place and 1,354 litres with them folded down. If the rear seats are placed more upright then you can still carry five and increase the space in boot to 595 litres. The tailgate has the opportunity of being electrically operated via the EASY-PACK tailgate option.

There is also more headroom (40mm +) in the rear which will please rear seat passengers who found the rear of the coupe a tight fit.
