Mercedes management on the CLA Shooting Brake: "Fifth chapter of a success story"

Mar 5, 2015
"With the CLA Shooting Brake our compact-class family has grown to five models. The huge breadth of the range, which also includes all-wheel drive and AMG versions, is a fundamental reason for the impressive success story that is the new compact generation - well over a million cars have already been delivered to customers."
Dr Dieter Zetsche, CEO of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars
„As well as the many technical highlights which characterise our Shooting Brake, like all the models in the compact model series it bears the quality seal of the ECARF (European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation) for scientifically tested high allergy-friendliness. Mercedes-Benz is the only automotive manufacturer to earn the ECARF seal."
Thomas Weber, Member of the Daimler Board of Management, responsible for Group Research and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Development
"The CLA Shooting Brake is aimed at active customers who want a car outside the mainstream, with a unique design, which impresses with a high utility value. With the spacious B-Class Sports Tourer, the youthfully dynamic A-Class, the avant-garde CLA Coupé and the compact GLA SUV, we cater for a host of different customer wishes in this segment."
Ola Källenius, Member of the Daimler Board of Management, responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales
"The new CLA Shooting Brake offers a contemporary interpretation of sensual purity and represents the perfect synthesis between the emotionality of a coupé and the intelligence of a shooting brake. The styling of our CLA Shooting Brake is extremely progressive as well as unmistakable. Once again, we have created a whole new vehicle class."
Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG
