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.

I'm bored to create a thread for station wagons.

Last time I recall something so different to their current lineup was in concept, the Range Stormer led to the RR Sport.

What in the name of all that is holy is that?? Don't they have a Jaguar to fill that niche.

Rumour has it that they are planning a full EV using the XJ platform.
'Up front, the sleek fascia and rectangular grille carry over from the Velar SUV, with similar vents and LED light fixtures noted throughout. The same wheels also carry over, and out back the sharp rear is accented by a pair of Range Rover-styled taillights. The body is finished in a polarizing bright gold paint.'

Mercedes-Benz EQS - although can a car described as a 'plush new EQS electric saloon' be classed as a saloon if it has a liftback bootlid?

'The heavily curved roofline and relatively shallow glasshouse is similar to that seen on the CLS, while the fastback-style rear contains a liftback-style bootlid similar to that of the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door Coupť.

The EQS is expected to be powered by two electric motors – one on the front axle and the other at the rear – providing permanent four-wheel drive. In the EQC, this set-up will deliver more than 400bhp and some 516lb ft. A lithium ion battery with a capacity of around 90kWh is planned to provide a range of between 400 and 500km (248-311 miles).'
