Mercedes' facelifted CLA Shooting Brake has been caught putting in a few laps on the Nürburgring.

Spied wearing modest camouflage, the updated model is instantly recognizable but will feature the usual mid-cycle styling tweaks including a new front bumper and updated head- and taillights.  The wagon also gains new exhaust tips which are integrated into the rear bumper.

Engine options will be shared with the facelifted A- and B-Class, so expect to see a variety of familiar choices including a range-topping CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 381 PS (280 kW) and 475 Nm (351 lb-ft) of torque.
