Now that we have seen both the Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake and the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake , rumors have sprouted that the next CLA will also be offered in a Shooting Brake version . Just the other week, we brought out the first details on this upcoming model, and today we have a cool rendering that brings those facts to life!
Just like the sedan version, the next CLA Shooting Brake will be built on Mercedes ’ new Modular Front Architecture (MFA) platform and will take its design inspiration from the recently announced CLS Shooting Brake. Under the hood, we will see the same engine line-up as in the upcoming CLA sedan: a 1.6 liter turbocharged petrol engine offered with either 121 HP or 154 HP. Mercedes will also offer a CLA AMG Shooting Brake which will be powered by a a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit that will deliver about 330 HP and 332 lb-ft of torque.
The upcoming Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake will arrive on the market a few months after the sedan version, so don’t expect it before 2014.
