You would be right if you answered "almost everything with a hatcback in Europe." Mercedes teases all of us enthusiasts hoping for some wagon action stateside with a new Shooting Brake variant of the popular CLA. The compact four-door gains a bit more room and puts down some high-performance numbers with an AMG model that can produce 360-hp from 2.0L turbo engine. 

Our friends overseas will get a number of powertrain options including two diesel models, a CLA 250 with 4Matic all-wheel-drive, and of course, the top-of-the line model you see here, the CLA45 AMG. The AMG model will boast a twin-scroll turbocharger with exhaust flap, an AMG Speedshift 7-speed transmission, and 4-Matic all-wheel-drive to help give you the best traction and performance under any road condition.
