    One of those terms borrowed and modified, it seems.

    Because you want to shoot them when they brake?

    I thought they were called “Estates” on the other side of the pond? The sedan beeing a saloon.

    It's an anachronism. Probably something they've resurrected to make the car seem more special. I live in the UK and have never heard the term shooting brake before this.

    "Shooting-brake" originated as an early 19th-century British term for a vehicle used to carry shooting parties with their equipment and game.
