Second-Gen Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake Prototype Scooped

Contrary to initial reports, the CLA Shooting Brake will live on for the second generation as proved by a prototype of the car snapped up by our spy photographers.

Seen on the streets of Germany for the first time, the estate Shooting Brake looks quite sleek. The roofline appears to have been raised a bit, providing better headroom for passengers sitting on the rear bench, but it’s still sporty enough to allow the second version of the CLA to retain the Shooting Brake moniker.

Regardless of the trim level, the all-new CLA Shooting Brake will benefit from the new MBUX infotainment system which combines the infotainment and digital instrument cluster into a wide display and gives the cockpit a techy look. Other features expected to adorn the cabin are the ambient lighting, new air vents, three-spoke steering wheel and several upholsteries to choose from.

Sharing the platform with the new A-Class will allow the second-gen CLA (both the four-door coupe and the Shooting Brake) to adopt a variety of engines. One of them will probably be the turbocharged 1.3-liter unit that was co-developed between Daimler and Renault-Nissan.

Mercedes-AMG will probably have their way with the CLA Shooting Brake, too. Expect a 35-labelled version, with 306 PS (302 hp / 225 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque, while a possible AMG 45 should have in excess of 400 PS (394 hp / 294 kW).

The all-new CLA is expected to debut sometime next year, followed by the Shooting Brake.

    Isn’t this just an CLA Estate? Shooting breaks are two door? Or is this part of the whole 4 door “coupe” thing.

    • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

      Yeah, it is a CLA Estate. Mercedes marketing department calls it a Shooting Brake, even though its really not.

      Good examples:
      Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake
      Ferrari FF
      Reliant Scimitar GTE
      Volvo 1800ES

        I am getting $17000 monthly by freelancing from comfort of my house you could also do the same. In company work you dont get that freedom which you need, therefore office job seriously sucks. On the other hand in Internet income, you will have the financial freedom to enjoy your time with your family anytime you want and also go on vacation with them any month you prefer.
