How much?

The A-Class and CLA sell out be­fore they’ve landed Oz-wise, as will its small plat­form sib­ling the GLA soft-roader. The vari­ant we rather fancy is seen here. The Shoot­ing Brake take on the CLA will not only solve the four-door coupe’s in­ner-space is­sue but it is also in dan­ger of be­ing the world’s coolest wagon. No great feat you might think but, climb­ing out on a limb, we say this is a cult clas­sic in the mak­ing. Ex­pect Benz’s beaut turbo fours and maybe — just maybe — an AWD hot­tie.
