Mercedes-Benz CLC Shooting Brake Approved for Production
text size: A- A+
The “Shooting Brake” name was adopted in order to describe sporty wagons which have two long doors. In other words, the therm describes car body styles that combine features of a wagon and a coupe. The therm has also deep roots in France as estate cars are often referred as “breaks” the abbreviation for “break de chasse.”
The new CLC Shooting Brake will receive a heavily angled tailgate which doesn’t allows the curious eye to see the outright capacity for the cutting edge design. It will hit the showrooms in the US along the CLC coupe in 2014 as confirmed by Mercedes-Benz insiders. The CLC Shooting Brake will be offered with a new range of four-cylinder, direct-injection gasoline engines, as related by Automotive News.
Customers will also have the possibility of choosing between a front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive. The CLC variant is expected to have a price tag under the larger and more opulent CLS version. For the moment, no more details have been announced so the only thing left to do is wait for the bomb to drop.
