The great thing about a station wagon is there’s so much you don’t have to waste any thoughts on.
For example, should you take the snowboard up to the slopes or the skis? Answer: Both. Will it be a holiday in the mountains or at the beach? Doesn’t matter, the dinghy and the trekking tent will both fit easily into the trunk. And so on. In this way, room for new possibilities opens up – quite literally. The new Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake, moreover, proves that this spatial generosity does not in any way detract from automotive aesthetics. This is a vehicle that unites the dynamics of a four-door coupe with the utility of a station wagon. One look tells you that it readily plenty of storage space, yet with its frameless side windows, flat, rearward-sloping roof and squat stance, it boasts a far more agile look than your average shooting brake. The car’s name itself points to its sporting DNA:
historically, shooting brakes described special chassis that were used in Britain to break in young, wild horses and then to convey shooting parties to the hunt. In its guise as the CLA 250 Sport 4Matic* OrangeArt Edition, this modern-day manifestation not only looks young and powerful, it drives in the same vein.
