Mercedes-Benz boss Dieter Zetsche has just given the go ahead for the new model. Reports say the sleek CLC Shooting Brake will be based on the upcoming CLC four-dour coupe, planned for 2013, and share similar design characteristics with the CLS Shooting Brake (pictured).
The front end of the new model will likely feature a similar design as that seen on the Mercedes-Benz F800 Concept, with a prominent upper grille and the company's new headlight design. At the back, a long swooping roofline will drop down progressively to form a sporty hatch tailgate.
The new model will mean Mercedes-Benz will have two sedan-based coupes in its line-up, and now both will be available in a slick wagon form. No official details have been released yet, but reports say the model will feature a similar range of petrol and diesel engine options similar to the C-Class.
According to reports, the CLC Shooting Brake will hit the showrooms sometime in 2014. We'll keep you updated with more concrete details as soon as possible.
