Dieter Zetsche Approves Mercedes-Benz CLC Shooting Brake

Mercedes-Benz boss Dieter Zetsche has given approval for a second Shooting Brake model based on the upcoming Mercedes CLC

by  John Clark  | 


The Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake is due to roll-off the assembly line at the Mercedes-Benz Plant Sindelfingen in 2012 and if the recent reports are true, we may get a second smaller Shooting Brake a couple years later. Automotive News has reported that Mercedes-Benz boss Dieter Zetsche has given approval for a second Shooting Brake model based on the upcoming Mercedes CLC that would go on sale in North American in 2014.

The CLC variant would be priced below the larger and more lavish CLS version and will ride on a MFA platform and be offered with a variety of petrol and diesel engines.

The five-door CLC Shooting Brake is expected to be heavily influenced by the Concept Shooting Brake and therefore will receive a sloping roof-line and a heavily-stylized rear end.
