Affalterbach. Mercedes-AMG is continuing its model initiative: following on from the successful A 45 AMG, CLA 45 AMG and GLA 45 AMG models, the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake is now the fourth high-performance compact car to be brought out, and it makes a stunning impression with its unique interior concept and its unrivalled mix of thrilling driving dynamics, excellent everyday usability and tremendous individuality. The sensational avant-garde concept of the CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake offers yet another highly attractive means of entering the fascinating world of AMG. With an output of 265 kW (360 hp) and peak torque of 450 Newton metres, the 2.0-litre turbo engine is the world's most powerful four-cylinder engine in series production.
"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."
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. At the same time, however, Mercedes-AMG is also creating a brand new model segment with the CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake: the extremely sporty and compact lifestyle estate. 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 greenhouse, long bonnet, exaggerated, high beltline and 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 is the perfect companion for day-to-day driving. At the same time, it lends itself to the enjoyment of all manner of leisure pursuits and is sure to delight a physically active target group that enjoys a design-oriented lifestyle and is constantly on the lookout for new trends.
Exceptional power-to-displacement ratio, low fuel consumption
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.
