Mercedes Confirms CLA Shooting Brake

With the A-Class and the CLA four-door coupe already for sale, and the GLA SUV on its way to becoming a production car, Mercedes’ A-Class family will gain yet another member, the company has announced earlier this week.

Speaking to What Car?, the automaker’s design boss Gordon Wagener admitted that Mercedes-Benz is looking to develop a shooting brake version of the CLA sedan. “The CLA is a four-door coupe as well, so why not do it?,” said Wagener.

During the same interview, the German company’s representative also denied rumors of a sportier A-Class model, claiming that Mercedes-Benz doesn’t need such a vehicle since “the market is declining”.

No info when the CLA Shooting Brake might actually be built, but until then you can revisit Theophilus Chin’s renderings we posted about two months ago in the photo gallery section below.
