Beauty, isn’t it? The fifth model off the new range of compact cars from Mercedes-Benz, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake, was only just unveiled to the world, and has rather quickly popped up officially in Thailand for a launch.
Our friends over at Autospinn were at the premiere event of the car in Thailand and have shared with us the following video of the CLA-Class Shooting Brake being revealed there.
Riding on the same A-Class family platform as the A-, B-, CLA- and GLA-Class, the Shooting Brake is a wagon-ised variant of the CLA-Class coupe.
Powertrains are nothing new either, with four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines available, paired with Merc’s seven-speed DCT (dual-clutch) automatic transmission. Read more about the CLA-Class Shooting Brake.
In Thailand, the CLA 250 Shooting Brake is the sole variant being sold there at the moment, and features a 2.0-litre twin-scroll turbo engine that makes 211hp and 350Nm of torque. Prices for the single variant is a cool 2.89 mil baht, which directly converts to RM323k. The car is also imported directly from the UK, much like our range of compact Mercs.
Over here, we haven't heard anything yet from Mercedes-Benz Malaysia about any official launch plans, but seeing how their compact cars have taken flight here, we wouldn't be too surprised if they do decide in favour of it.
Stay tuned for more.
