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.
