Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake To Be the Last MFA Variant

Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake will be the last variant built on the MFA Platform

Only four Mercedes models will be produced on front-wheel-drive architecture (MFA Platform) instead of the previously stated five.  It looks like the lucky one  to not get the axe will be the CLA Shooting Brake, a highly stylized wagon that will draw design cues from the larger CLS Shooting Brake.

Don’t look for the shooting brake in the U.S. however as it seems Mercedes doesn’t think Americans are fond of wagons and shooting brakes.

The higher ups at Mercedes-Benz told Car and Driver that rather than develop an all-new SLA roadster, it makes far more sense to put the investment and effort into something with thick profit margins and a glamorous image. Likely referring to the upcoming S-class convertible.
