Development work on the upcoming 2015 Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake in on full swing and here is a spy pic that shows the upcoming model undergoing some cold weather testing.
The more practical and family-oriented model in the CLA line-up will have a familiar face but would sport a stylish rear end that will carry several design cues taken from the bigger CLS Shooting Brake.
It can be seen in the image that the CLA Shooting Brake will boast of larger rear doors and a stylish tailgate that sports an integrated spoiler.
Engine options are most likely to be carried over from the sedan variant and hence, the car would be available with-
- 100hp, 1.5-liter diesel engine
- 136hp, 1.8-liter diesel engine
- 170hp, 2.1-liter diesel engine
- 122hp, 1.6-liter petrol engine
- 156hp, 1.6 litre petrol engine
- 211hp, 2.0-liter petrol engine
Mercedes Benz could also come up with a CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake variant soon after the launch of the new body style. The CLA AMG Shooting Brake will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that has a max power of 360 HP (265 kW) and peak torque of 450 Nm.
As is quite obvious, the Shooting Brake will not come to India, which isn’t really an estate-friendly market. However, the CLA sedan is sure to come to us and stay tuned to Motoroids for more dope on Mercedes CLA India launch.
