Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake
Its 2.0-litre turbo engine is the world's most powerful four-cylinder engine in series production
Breathtakingly sporty proportions and a powerfully dynamic design idiom with sensuously shaped surfaces already made the CLA unmistakable in its four-door Coupé guise.
It is now followed by a further design icon, the CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake, with a unique look all of its own.
The fourth high-performance compact car from Mercedes-AMG adopts the same philosophy as the successful CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake by taking the form of a sports car with five seats and a large tailgate.
The five-door newcomer plays out its role as an individual, extravagant trendsetter for connoisseurs to perfection: stylish, cool and right in touch with the times, the design and dynamic performance of the compact-sized Shooting Brake from AMG will satisfy even the most discerning demands.
Despite the sporty, progressive looks, featuring a roof line that slopes down gently towards the rear, low-set cabin, long bonnet, exaggerated, high beltlineand a dynamically styled tail end. Absolutely no compromises have to be made when it comes to everyday practicality: thanks to a versatile luggage compartment with a maximum capacity of 1354 litres and the increase in headroom compared to the four-door coupé.
The CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake comes equipped with an impressive engineering package to deliver the desired highly dynamic performance.
The most powerful series-production turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the world promises a thrilling drive, generating a remarkable 133 kW (181 hp) per litre of displacement and catapulting the CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake from standstill to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds.
At the same time, the fuel consumption of just 6.9 litres for every 100 kilometres (NEDC combined) also underlines the trailblazing standards of efficiency achieved by Mercedes-AMG.
The list of technical highlights also includes the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission, fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive, the powerful braking system and a chassis that has been purpose-developed, from the tuning set-up right through to the axles. This means that the fully variable distribution of drive torque makes it possible to range from from full front-wheel drive to a 50:50 split.
