Rumoured for a while now Mercedes have revealed the CLA Shooting Brake.

Going on sale in January 2015 the Shooting Brake will alleviate that cramped rear headroom found in the normal CLA, hopefully making it a truly usable compact 4 door car.

Boot space is obviously upped to 495 litres, with a second option of a more upright back (cargo position) making 595 litres. Fold the rear seats down and you get a huge 1354 litres of luggage stowing capacity.

At launch you will be able to choose from two diesel engines and three petrol models (full details at the end). The lowest power output comes from the CLA 180 petrol with just 122 HP, the beefiest offering will be the 220 CDI diesel with 188 HP.

However in March 2015 the CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake will be shown off at Geneva. Naturally this will have that stunningly powerful 2.0 litre turbo engine producing 360 HP and 450 Nm of torque, giving it a 0-62 time of 4.7 seconds.

All in all the CLA Shooting Brake is a rather elegant looking car, it should certainly plug any gaps in Mercs CLA offering.
