There have been some recent pictures of a Mercedes Benz CLA45 AMG which look very much that there may be a shooting brake being planned. There is already a five door hatch A-class on the same CLA platform and there is a five door crossover GLA on top. Therefore it seems a bit odd that there is a five door hatch based on the CLA and a shooting brake would be a far better option. However, nothing has been officially announced and so we will just have to speculate for the time being.
It is expected that the AMG powertrain would remain but there be a longer and slinkier roof. The 2.0 litre turbocharged four cylinder engine with 360 horsepower will certainly be an attractive feature as well. There are also multi-spoke wheels and an aggressive body with vents in the front which all look very much like an AMG. There are quad exhausts at the back as well as vents on the bumper.
It is possible that this could appear in the US in the same way as the CLS shooting brake. But it might be thought that there should be a proper hot hatch available as well as this hot sedan.
