When I first saw the Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake, I was convinced its styling cues make for an automotive equivalent of the German Shepherd. We recently experienced spending a few days with a CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake. Sure, the process was focused on letting that insane two-liter engine demonstrate its potential, but we also have a Full HD photo gallery for you.
Yes, this Shooting Brake will drift, but you’ll have to take things very, very far to convince it to go sideways. After all, we are dealing with an all-wheel drive system that sends the power to the front wheels, rerouting up to 50 percent of it to the rear when this is necessary. In a way, this car is a bit like Porsches - it just wants to grip and go fast, something it manages to do exceptionally well.

Inside the city, the CLA45 AMG S/B has two sides. As far as the driving part goes, you’ll be surprised and we’re not referring to smiling here. The car can be more difficult to use in crowded traffic at times, with the visibility being the main drawback here. Then there’s the gearbox. We enjoyed the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic in many situations, but don’t ask it to go from “Drive” into “Reverse” and back quickly when you turn.

As for the other side of the urban experience goes, this car is nothing short of a social networking tool. When you’re out driving this thing inside the city, it seems everybody wants to talk to you and we’re not referring to casual chatter here. We’re talking about people with decent hp per ton.

What about the holidays? Does this AMG have a practical side? Well, to an extent, it does. For one thing, there’s enough room in the back for a pair of adults. As for the luggage compartment, this offers decent capacity, but its opening is limited. So yes, you can use it as a family vehicle.

One day, this car will be a retro piece of motoring is somebody’s old photos. Only time will tell how the CLA Shooting Brake will age, but we do feel the light clusters will look dated in a few years’ time. Still, the styling of this car turns heads with magnetic force and we have plenty of angles to show you in the Full HD photo gallery of our 2016 CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake review.
