Due to the buzz with the CLA in the United States, Mercedes-Benz decided to launch a station wagon version of the CLA in 2015. Dubbed CLA Shooting Brake, the car was confirmed by company sources to Automotive News and it will be inspired by the CLS Shooting Brake.
Comparing it with the CLA sedan, the new CLA Shooting Brake will offer mode space, including more rear headroom and cargo space. Furthermore, the new CLA Shooting Brake will be the fifth model using Daimler’s front-wheel-drive platform, joining the A-Class and the B-Class hatchbacks, CLA and the GLA crossover.
Still, we don’t know yet if Mercedes-Benz will sell the CLA Shooting Brake in the United States. Same sources said that a CLA convertible is not in Daimler’s plans but could arrive then the next-generation CLA will debut, which means in about five years.
