Article by Christian A., on August 10, 2011

Dieter Zetsche a.k.a. Mercedes-Benz boss announced today that the Shooting Brake model inspired by the Mercedes-Benz Shooting Brake Concept received green light for production.

Set to make its debut in 2012, the new model is expected to hit the U.S. market in 2014 and will use a new platform that will offer a stylish but practical rival to the likes of the Audi A5 Sportback or the upcoming Bmw 3-Series GT.

Regarding the price, sources confirm the fact that the vehicle will be less expensive than the CLS.

Moreover, the vehicle will be available as standard with front wheel drive or as an option with all-wheel drive, according to Autonews. For those folks who don’t know, the ‘shooting brake’ term describes two-door sporty wagons and the latest vehicle to use this philosophy is the Ferrari FF, company’s first all-wheel drive model.

The Mercedes-Benz CLC Shooting Brake will feature five doors and will receive a stylish sloping roof as well as heavily angled tailgate.

Moreover, the vehicle will be sold alongside the CLC Coupe, a smaller version of the CLS, which is expected to hit the market in 2013. This model will also be available in the United States and was confirmed by Mercedes-Benz. As expected, the new CLC will offer a new range of four-cylinder, direct-injection gasoline engines.
