BANGKOK, 20 February 2015 —— Mercedes-Benz (Thailand) Limited presented its new member of the New Generation Compact Car (NGCC) Series. Specifically designed to answer complex lifestyles of young drivers, “The new CLA Shooting Brake” is a five-door sport compact with a distinctive profile, a spacious cabin, and a wide luggage compartment. The new CLA 250 Shooting Brake AMG Sport can be ordered now at authorised dealer of Mercedes-Benz nationwide for THBaht 2,890,000,-.


President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz (Thailand) Limited, Michael Grewe revealed: “To continue our ‘The Best’ philosophy and to present the core value of the brand in terms of “Fascination” and “Perfection”, we are continually introducing innovative products that fulfil every possible desire of our customers. To attract young drivers this year, we are completing our NGCC portfolio with the launch of the new CLA Shooting Brake. Young generation drivers, particularly those who love active lifestyles and would like to own an eye-catching estate, should be delighted with the fifth member of our premium compact car category.”

Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Martin Schulz continued:  “The new CLA 250 Shooting Brake AMG Sport is a new five-door sport compact with a distinctive unlike-the-other design. The exterior is strikingly appealing with sharply defined bodylines and the famous diamond radiator grille with Mercedes-Benz’s logo which is exactly matched with the preinstalled AMG sport package. This includes AMG bodystyling kit (front and rear apron, side sill panels), a sporty diffuser in vehicle colour, a two-pipe exhaust system with rectangular tailpipes in polished stainless steel, perforated front brake discs and brake calipers with “Mercedes-Benz” lettering, 18-inch AMG multi-spoke light alloy wheels, and the new electronically-operated panoramic sliding sunroof.  Apart from all these highlights, many other detailed elements of the new CLA Shooting Brake such as a long bonnet, a sleek greenhouse, narrow window line with frameless side windows, and an elongated coupé-style roof also set the new CLA Shooting Brake apart from other vehicles.”

“Additonally, the interior of our new five-door sport compact derives a very special quality feel from the modern design and chosen materials, as well as preinstalled special equipment. The new CLA Shooting Brake features black ARTICO leather and DINAMICA microfibre sport seats with red topstitching, a three-spoke sports multifunction steering wheel with red contrasting topstitching, and black DINAMICA microfibre door panels. For the ride’s enjoyment and convenience, we offer the MB Audio 20 entertainment system, which supports radio and CD, as well as an eight-inch free-standing display for the infotainment system preinstalled with an SD-card navigation system. To conjure an individual atmosphere, our LED ambient lighting system is also included. Twelve colour schemes are available to suit taste and mood in the interior.”

Mr.Martin Schulz

“Spaciousness is one of the strengths of the Shooting Brake models by Mercedes. The cabin of the new CLA 250 Shooting Brake AMG Sport features many equipment packages including the semi-electronically operated EASY-PACK tailgate package. With this package, the tailgate can be opened or closed with a push of a button at the tailgate, the driver’s seat control panel, or the key. Furthermore, variability and consequently functionality are also increased significantly as the rear seats can be adjusted into a 1/3 spilt or a 2/3 split in seconds.

The new CLA 250 Shooting Brake AMG Sport’s load compartment capacity ranges from 495 to 1,354 litres, which is the largest in comparison with other premium estates. Today’s drivers can rely on the new CLA Shooting Brake’s capaciousness  as they can pack bulky sporting gear or key business apparatus.”

The new CLA Shooting Brake is powered by a 4–cylinder in-line petrol turbo engine with intercooler with a displacement of 1,991 cc. The engine develops 211 HP at 5,500 rpm, with maximum torque of 350 Nm at 1,200-4,000 rpm. Acceleration from zero to 100 km/h is in 6.9 seconds and the top speed is 240 km/h. approximate fuel consumption rate is from 17.5 to 18.2 km/l. The engine is combined with the 7G-DCT automatic transmission set with steering-wheel gearshift paddles. The new CLA 250 Shooting Brake AMG Sport will be available in Thailand for THBaht 2,890,000,-.

This exciting new premium sport compact will be exhibited in The 36th Bangkok International Motor Show, from 25 March to 5 April at the Challenger Hall, IMPACT Muang Thong Thani.
