Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake confirmed image

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz has recently announced its plans to introduce a Shooting Brake version of the brand new CLA.

The announcement has been made by the company’s design chief, Gordon Wagener, who says that a fourth member of the A-Class lineup will soon make its way onto the market. The official said that this will be the Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake, which will come after the A-Class, the four-door CLA and the GLA crossover. Gordon Wagener said that the model is already in development and it’s expected to hit the market in 2014. Wagener confirmed the CLA Shooting Brake in an interview with What Car?.

Sadly no details have been released on the Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake just yet, but once it will hit the market, the model is expected to share the same engine lineup as its four-door coupe brother. The elegant small vehicle is 182.3 inches long, 56.6 inches tall and 80.0 inches wide and it’s riding on the new MFA platform. The model is influenced by the new A-Class generation and it’s basically a smaller brother of the CLS. Additional details on the Shooting Brake version of the CLA will probably be announced later on this year.
