I looked at that front on picture and could only see a BMW 7 series designed Jag. Bentley really just isn't trying and they are dull dull cars, even though that would be a dull car with a beast engine by design

Yeah, I could have sworn a shooting brake was usually a 2 door "sports" car with an amended body to make it wagon adjacent. I'd call a 4 door version a wagon, estate, hatch, etc. Although I believe Mercedes and Porsche call their wagons both shooting brakes officially.

Wikipedia suggests that:

'Shooting-brake is a term for car body style which originated in the 1890s as a horse-drawn wagon used to transport shooting parties with their equipment and game'
'Since the 1960s, the term has evolved, describing cars combining elements of both station wagon and coupť body styles' - neither of which is a Sedan.

Perhaps Shooting Brakes are the true SUV?

Sports - coupe body style
Sports - for carrying sport (shooting) equipment

Utility - combining a sporty car with an ability to support sporting activities.

The Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake is just a station wagon with a fancy (ugly) roof.
