2016 Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake patent images surface online

September 14, 2016

The Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake arrived last year and Mercedes-Benz is giving it a facelift next year, as seen in these patent images obtained by Autocar.

The Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake’s facelift won’t be as comprehensive as that of the Mercedes A-Class, considering the fact that it’s relatively new in the market. The British publication says in its report that the facelift will indeed be a minor one.

Some of the exterior changes seen on the new Mercedes A-Class will be applied to the Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake, including revised headlights and tail lights. One change we know for sure is going to be with the nomenclature. For instance, diesel models which have their name tailed with ‘CDI’ will have only a ‘d’ lettering to denote their engine type.

The 2016 Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake will go on sale in the UK in early 2016, as per the report.

  1. Hope they build it as an AMG-CLA.
    I test drove the CLA based 2015 AMG-GLA, what a fun vehicle and it goes like a rocket. This fantastically ludicrous turbo 4-cyl. CUV is faster then a Mustang GT and as fast as an SS Camaro. 0-60 mph in 4.2. The 1/4 mile in 12.2 And a 167mph. Those are serious numbers for surf board hauler that are only encumbered by a stiff price, but that includes AWD and some pretty serious vehicle dynamics and a typically great MB interior.
