Review

Although on paper the CLA Shooting Brake has a pretty big boot, a high load lip and narrow aperture hurt its practicality. But although we could point out a Superb Estate is far bigger for the money, the CLA’s attractive interior, strong engines and decent driving experience hold plenty of appeal.

get the best price

We’d avoid the Premium Plus package due to its head room-eating panoramic sunroof.

The 1.3-litre petrol engine in the CLA 200 is perfectly adequate when you’re just pottering around town. However, you need to work it hard for it to feel as potent as its 161bhp output suggests, and when you do, it sounds rather coarse and thrashy
