The Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake is great to look at, but rival estates are more practical and better to driveread the full model review
This entry-level trim is all you really need with 18in alloys, cruise control, manmade leather seats, dual-zone climate control, keyless start and a powered tailgate all featuring as standard. We’d recommend adding adjustable lumbar support and a DAB radio, though.,
Offering the best combination of performance and economy, the C220d is our preferred engine choice in the C-Class Estate. Although it sounds quite coarse at idle and when going through the gears, the engine settles down when cruising on the motorway. It also offers plenty of shove without the need to rev it hard. The C220d engine uses slightly less fuel when paired with the manual gearbox, but the slick automatic transmission is the better choice for comfort.
