A station wagon should not only look good and be practical, it may also be a little faster on the road. No problem at Mercedes, that's what the AMG department is all about.
SP-X / Affalterbach. After Coupé is now the Shooting Brake of the Mercedes CLA in the starting blocks. The estate debut in summer will be available in a high-performance AMG version, just like the coupe. As 35 4Matic he makes 225 kW / 306 PS and should launch similar to the corresponding version of the coupe at around 52.000 Euro.
The two-liter four-cylinder turbo mobilizes 400 Nm, the standard spurt succeeds in 4,9 seconds. The top speed is 250 km / h. The average consumption is Mercedes with 7,4 to 7,5 liters. As standard, a gasoline filter on board. The power transmission takes place via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. A race start function is to guarantee the maximum acceleration from the state. Depending on the driving situation, the power is only distributed to the front axle or up to a ratio of 50 to 50 percent on the front and rear axles.
Visually, the AMG variant is recognizable, among other things, by the typical radiator cowling with double lamellae, special 18 or 19 inch aluminum, striking side skirts, a rear apron with diffuser insert and round tailpipe trims. Inside there are sports seats, sports pedals, "AMG" entry guards and a modified touchpad. This has additional switches to operate the advanced adjustment options of the AMG version such as the adaptive damper setting. In addition, the MBUX (Mercedes Benz User Experience) connectivity and operating system including the "Hey Mercedes" voice control and an AMG-type instrument cluster are on board.
The variant as 35 should not be the last AMG expansion stage of the CLA; an 45 with 400 PS will probably debut later this year.
