Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake is the Wagon America Needs

The new Mercedes-Benz CLA has absolutely killed its sales since it debuted earlier in the year. Mercedes wanted a new entry-level model that would bring in a younger generation of buyer, and the CLA and GLA have absolutely knocked it out of the park. Now Mercedes wants to expand the lineup for the cars' platform. We’ve already seen the CLA 45 AMG, and the GLA, but according to Mercedes, what the CLA needs is a shooting brake. Or what us Americans call "a wagon." RELATED: See Photos of the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 Shooting Brake

Gone are the days of dorky wood-lined station wagons. Today’s modern iterations are some of the best all-purpose vehicles you could buy. Wagons maintain a car's style, small size, and ability to bypass the dreaded soccer mom minivan. They have loads of storage, and generally look better than the regular sedans they are based on. The new CLA Shooting Brake is no exception. It will have more headroom, a powered rear lift-gate, and a host of engines including the 2.0-liter turbo-charged four cylinder from AMG. The AMG version (pictured here) will be 4Matic only and come with a mind numbing 360 horsepower, good enough for a 0-62 sprint in just 4.7 seconds.

While it hasn’t been green-lit for all the markets just yet, we hope that this little wagon will make its way over to our neck of the woods. Seeing that we never got a few others, though, you probably shouldn’t hold your breath. No word on how much this handsome wagon will set you back.
