Mercedes-Benz to Release a CLC Shooting Brake

Mercedes-Benz is reportedly going to release a second Shooting Brake model after the CLS Shooting Brake debuts in 2012. Mercedes-Benz boss Dieter Zetsche has reportedly given the green light to a smaller CLC Shooting Brake.

The CLC Shooting Brake will be based on the upcoming CLC four-door coupe. The CLC is basically a mini CLS. Just in case you’re not familiar with the term “Shooting Brake”, it’s the term that is used for wagons that only have two long doors, instead of the typical four-doors on most wagons.

The CLC Shooting Brake is expected to sell alongside the CLC coupe that will go on sale in the U.S. in 2013.
