Mercedes-Benz has confirmed its worst-kept secret: the CLA Shooting Brake, spied testing in recent months, will soon enter production.
The new model is expected to enter production in 2015 as the fifth model to spin off from Merc’s compact A-Class family.
Confirmation of the CLA Shooting Brake also follows Mercedes’ announcement that it will launch 10 all-new models between 2012 and 2020.
Other models in that plan have included the larger CLS Shooting Brake, along with the CLA sedan and the GLA.
Expect the CLA Shooting Brake to mirror the general styling and technology of its platform mates, including an eventual ‘45 AMG’ hero model.
