The newest addition to the CLA line-up was spied wearing only mild camouflage on the rear and virtually no camouflage on the front.
It is believed that engine and driveline options for the CLA Shooting Brake will more or less mirror those for the CLA sedan, and an AMG version could also be on the cards.
A CLA Shooting Brake was first rumoured in April, with Mercedes design boss Gordon Wagener saying “why not do it?” in reference to building a shooting brake version.
The CLA Shooting Brake will join the more up-market CLS Shooting Brake in the Mercedes stables, with the latter being available to Australian buyers for around a year now.
No word yet on whether we’ll see the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake in Australia, but as a sizable CLA range is already here, there’s every chance.
