Mercedes will call this car the CLA Shooting Brake. We've seen i once before, but these latest spyshots are taken up close and personal. Not surprisngly, the design is basically the same as the regular CLA four-door. Changes have primarily been made from the B-pillar back: slightly taller rear windows, added quarter glass and a spoiler on top of the boot lid.
As far as practicality is concerned, the trunk opening is a little awkward, but we'll put up with that since the taillights are so bold, dominating the hind quarters.
Engines will be the same as the normal CLA, culminating with the 360 PS hot AMG version. No word on US availability yet, but since Mercedes has no other UKL-based models sold there besides the CLA, things are looking good for the CLA.
