A sleek coupé with a four-cylinder turbocharged engine, the CLA45 AMG offers pace, looks and interior luxury to the committed driver.
At the same time, its impressive practicality, stability and fuel economy make it eminently suitable for everyday use.
Contact the Lancaster Mercedes-Benz dealerships in Chelmsford, Colchester, Ipswich, Lakeside (Thurrock) or Southend to make further enquiries about the CLS Shooting Brake AMG, or to book a test drive.
The array of active safety features standard on the CLA45 AMG includes Adaptive Brake Assist, which integrates the ABS and Electronic Stability Programme to reduce stopping distances – backing up the manufacturer’s capable 4MATIC all-wheel drive mechanism.
Attention Assist sounds a warning if it senses signs of fatigue in your driving, whilst Collision Prevention Assist Plus informs you if you are travelling too close to the vehicle in front. Active Park Assist and Lane-Keeping Assist are also standard, supplementing the all-round protection provided by seven airbags.
The uniquely tapered shape of the CLA45 AMG’s bodywork is no optical illusion; its drag coefficient is just 0.23, which is highly beneficial for performance levels as well as fuel efficiency.
Powerful halogen headlights and LED daytime running lights, gaping air intakes and a grille partitioned by a large chrome bar and the Mercedes crest create a powerful visual impact.
Which is only accentuated by the plunging roofline, twin exhausts, and 18” or 19” alloy wheels.
The circular chrome-lined air vents, flat-bottomed sports steering wheel and nappa leather AMG performance seats raise the energy levels further still, along with the AMG branding on the floor mats and instrument cluster.
The 470 litres of loadspace make the CLA45 AMG notably practical for a coupé that seems so slim and compact from the outside.
Whilst the comfort suspension makes this a car that can offer sophistication as well as thrilling pace.
A 2.0 litre, four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine powers the CLA45 AMG.
Its 355bhp of power and huge maximum torque of 450Nm generates astonishing performance, giving the vehicle 0-62mph acceleration in a mere 4.6 seconds.
The engine is linked to a seven-speed AMG sports gearbox, which offers silky-smooth power delivery as well as three driving modes.
The firm suspension and damping also reduces body roll to a minimum whilst cornering.
The high-performance brakes with four-piston dixed callipers result in an extremely swift rate of deceleration.
Inside the spacious cabin, standard cabin equipment includes dual-zone climate control, a DAB radio, USB input, and a 5.8” Comand colour screen.
Optional extras include highlights such as Speed Limit Assist (which displays the maximum legal limit in your current location), a reversing camera with parking guidelines, and a Harman Kardin Logic 7 urround sound system with 11 speakers.
