PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG By Loewenstein

As one of the newest models in the Mercedes-AMG lineup, the CLA45 AMG has a lot to live up to. Fortunately for Mercedes-AMG, the performance-oriented sedan has been up-to-task with that, as it has established itself as a worthy competitor to more established rivals like the BMW M3 and the Audi S3. Owners of the CLA45 AMG have very little to worry about the car, and now, they have even more reasons to celebrate now that Loewenstein has introduced its first tuning kit for the sedan.

In line with its past works, the German tuner focused its attention on giving the CLA45 AMG improved performance capabilities. That’s the focus of the program, although a new wide body aero kit, a new set of wheels, and a carbon fiber-dressed interior are also part of the checklist. Overall, its a relatively comprehensive kit that touches on a lot of important aspects of the CLA45 AMG. There are no suspension modifications and that’s a little bit disappointing. But, given the variety of options it had on how best to approach the CLA45 AMG, I’d say that Loewenstein did a really good job at improving as much as it could on the car without disregarding its “AMG-ness”.

Loewenstein didn’t offer any pricing information about the program so prospective customers are advised to contact the tuner directly to get a quote on the tuning kit.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake

With station wagons losing ground to the ever-growing crossover segment, shooting brakes aren’t doing very well either. Things are worse in the U.S., where very few automakers still offer wagon or shooting brake body styles. Mercedes-Benz is the only brand that can brag about offering two shooting brakes (based on the CLA and CLS), but neither of them are available in North America.

With the CLA sedan selling like hot cakes in the U.S., Mercedes’ decision to not offer the CLA Shooting Brake on these shores is difficult to explain. And while we’re trying to figure that out, Europe is getting ready to welcome an update version of the sleek wagon.

According to a new batch of spy shots we just received from our paparazzi, Stuttgart is already working on a facelift for the CLA Shooting Brake. A bit surprising since the wagon was unveiled only two years ago, but Mercedes seems determined to update its entire lineup of compact vehicles through 2016.

So what does the mid-cycle update have in store for the CLA Shooting Brake? Nothing too dramatic really, but you’ll have to keep reading to find out more.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake

The CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake will be unveiled in Geneva in 2915, and Mercedes has revealed its preliminary information today.

With an affordable price tag and matching good looks, the 2014 to 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA became a popular item as soon as it hit showrooms. That success has inspired the Germans to expand the CLA lineup to include a beefed-up 2014 CLA45 AMG and a CLA Shooting Brake. With the former already on sale since the 2014 model year, Mercedes is finally rolling out wagon versions — Shooting Brakes, as the company likes to call them — for both four-door coupe models. The CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake breaks cover as we enter the 2015 model year, with its public debut set to take place at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

With the CLA45 AMG already available in U.S. dealerships, the Shooting Brake model is as familiar as it gets, with only the longer roofline and sloping tailgate setting it apart from its sedan sibling. The AMG-badged wagon is both powerful and fast, despite being a massive departure from AMG’s traditional V-8 and V-12 powerplant strategy with its 2.0-liter four-banger. You might as well call it the CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake’s baby brother; no one will mind. Read on for the full details.

Updated 08/28/2015: For the 2016 model year, the CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake receives the same output as the facelifted 2015 Mercedes-AMG A45 AMG, meaning that it gets to play with 381 horsepower instead of 360 horsepower, while the 0-62 mph acceleration takes place in 4.3 seconds.

MC Customs Mercedes CLA-0

Miami Based tuner MC Customs has put together a really nice styling kit for the Mercedes CLA 250. The compact German four-door coupe gets a custom body kit complete with a unique grille, plus a set of exclusive Vossen wheels which look as if they were tailored specifically for MC Customs Mercedes CLA.

The styling kit on this car is a thing of beauty in itself. It is way too massive for a car of CLA’s size, but because of that it gives the little car presence and attitude. MC Customs Mercedes CLA styling kit consists of a large carbon fiber front spoiler with extended lips on the sides, a custom grille painted in white to match the exterior color, blacked-out roof, new side skirts, extended boot lid spoiler – also in carbon, and a unique rear diffuser.

Some people may not this kit a bit too juicy, what with the mix of white and carbon accents. Personally, we would have the white rear diffuser finished in carbon for the sake of a more uniform look back there. As mentioned, MC Customs Mercedes CLA also features a set of bespoke Vossen wheel in white, garnished with green brake calipers. The car is based on the CLA 250 which is a fine engine. But really, this kit should be fitted to the more potent CLA 45 AMG.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Benz Plans AMG Sport Model Growth

With the Stuttgart carmaker recently adding the C450 AMG 4Matic and GLE450 AMG 4Matic Coupe to its “AMG Sport” stable, it seems that an avalanche of similar cars will be launched in the upcoming years, consisting of both smaller and larger Mercedes-Benz models. The information comes from the Aussies at Motoring, who recently had a chat with Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers.

Moers let it slip that a dramatic expansion of the model lineup doesn’t make him afraid of diminishing the AMG brand’s appeal, exclusivity or niche status. “I don’t care about the niche brand, I don’t even care about the exclusive brand,” he told Motoring at the C63 and C450 AMG press event. “AMG is the performance and sports car brand of Mercedes-Benz cars and if you bring cars to the market which are representing the AMG approach and attitude – driving performance – in that segment, then you don’t have a problem with the brand.” Moers continued.

Interestingly, the Mercedes-AMG boss also talked about the C450 AMG’s only direct rival, making it sound like there are no worries in the Affalterbach camp. “If you step into the sport model segment with the C 450 – if it comes to a competitive test with our competitors, a comparison with the Audi S5 or whatever – then our car must be in front.” That said, more AMG Sport models with no direct predecessors are set to appear in both the compact range and the upcoming E-Class.

PostHeaderIcon Video: Mercedes CLA Commercial Brings W196 Racecar Back Into Focus

With global sales on the rise in each and every market, including the U.S., Mercedes-Benz decided to capitalize on this and bring everyone’s attention to their least-expensive offering in the U.S., the CLA four-door coupe. But since December 2014, the CLA250 no longer starts at under $30,000, as its U.S. pricing has gone up, likely thanks to increased demand. But even a little “over” $30,000 still sounds great next to $30 million, right? I’ll buy two!

The new CLA commercial was shot at the Mercedes-Benz proving-ground test track in Untertürkheim, Germany, which is famous for its 90 degree bank. Every driver that has experienced the turn has said that it feels very much like riding the so-called “Wall of death,” and after seeing footage from there I can believe it.

The commercial’s premise is not exactly groundbreaking, since it simply accentuates that the CLA250 is still pretty cheap for a Mercedes-Benz, especially when compared with the W196R that not long ago auctioned for just under $30 million. The humor is lacking a bit, sadly, but the point still stands – the CLA is the cheapest Mercedes-Benz that you can buy in the U.S. For many buyers, that’s probably all that matters.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake Goes Into Production

Not long after Mercedes-Benz introduced the world to the swoopy and affordable CLA, we began hearing whispers of a more practical Shooting Brake version that would soon make its way to dealers. The First CLA began rolling off assembly lines in January of 2013, and now just two years later, Mercedes has officially announced that the Shooting Brake variant of the new CLA is in production at the same Kecskemét plant.

With a full 27,000 units of the standard CLA sold in the U.S. last year, double from 2013, and record sales around the globe, Mercedes is poised for huge growth worldwide and they are hoping that the increased practicality of the Shooting Brake will help push those numbers. Sadly for those of us here in the States we still have no confirmation of the long-roof version will actually make it to our shores.

If you live in Europe, Asia or one Mercedes’ other large markets you can start ordering your CLA Shooting Brake in one of six models ranging from the CLA 180 up to the AMG tuned CLA 45 AMG version. Retail price in Germany is €29,809.50 for the base 180 and go up to €57,268.75 for the AMG model.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake OrangeArt Edition

Mercedes broke its normal prtocol by releasing a special edition of its new CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake called the OrangeArt Edition instead of leading with an Edition 1.

Mercedes has spoiled us with a handful of Edition 1 models in 2013 and 2014, but the German automaker is taking a different approach with the new 2016 CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake. Instead of slapping another “Edition 1” badge on the new sporty wagon, Mercedes has opted to coin this first edition series the OrangeArt Edition.

As its name implies, the OrangeArt Edition comes with a handful of upgrades, particularly the orange accents spread throughout the exterior and interior of the car. The orange accents may have been used more as a complementary color to the dark-grey body of the CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake but the implications are pretty clear. These orange accents are largely responsible for breaking the ashen look of the wagon and bring some vibrancy to its appearance.

In the end, Mercedes’ objective to introduce a limited series for a new model remains the same. The approach is also pretty similar, too. It’s just a matter of getting used to calling this CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake by its proper name. So don’t get it twisted; it’s not an Edition 1 model. It’s the Mercedes CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake OrangeArt Edition.

PostHeaderIcon Filling the Gaps: Mercedes New Naming System Analyzed

Mercedes has already laid out most of its new naming scheme, but we noticed some obvious gaps, so we filled them in and speculated on each model.

Mercedes-Benz is planning some pretty major updates to the entirety of its product line. In a bid to fill every nook and cranny of the luxury auto market with some form of the three-pointed star, the company recently announced its intention to release eleven all-new models over the course of the next five years, which is in addition to ten new plug-in hybrids scheduled for release in the next three years.

To help sort through the glut of new cars, Mercedes has come up with a fresh nomenclature system that will be applied to all upcoming releases going into 2015. This system differentiates between vehicles via one to three upper case letters, which designate the car type (“GL” for SUVs/off-roaders, “CL” for four-door coupes, “SL” for roadsters, etc.) and core model series (A, E, S, etc.), plus lower case letters for the drive system (“d” for diesel, “h” for hybrid, etc.).

With this information in hand, we can breakdown the future model lineup with relative confidence, filling in the gaps as we go.

What new models will we see coming from Mercedes? Read on to find out.
