Kia is a fan of the Merc CLA shooting brake
After the Stinger gave us a competent impersonation of a BMW 4-Series GranCoupe, Kia now has its eyes on Merc shooting brakes with the new ProCeed. The old Pro-cee’d was a three-door hatch, but sales of those have fallen, so after the five-door Ceed and the straightforward estate version, Kia was in a bit of a conundrum for the next body style. The result is a rounded, tapering wagon, yet underneath the curves, it’s a big boxy space of no less than 594 litres, more than the Insignia and Mondeo estates. Niche busting at its best.
