Mercedes-Benz has officially confirmed production for the CLA Shooting Brake which will be introduced next year. This announcement comes after numerous rumour reports and camouflaged prototypes released on the web. The 2015 CLA Shooting Brake will be the fifth member to join the A-Class range after the hatchback, sedan, crossover and B-Class MPV models.
CLA Shooting Brake Design CuesThe model features design cues from the bigger CLS Shooting Brake, but it will have a different rear, and will share its mechanical platform with the CLA sedan.
Engine line up is said to be made up of turbo, four-cylinder petrol and diesel units. There will be a choice of manual or seven-speed dual-clutch gearboxes, and front- or 4MATIC four-wheel drive systems.
The stylish CLA estate is also expected to receive an AMG version, but that will happen at a later stage after the standard model's launch. More details will be revealed closer to launch.
