Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake ahead debut in UK

Mercedes has revealed its brand new CLS Shooting Brake, a luxury estate that combines the functionality of an estate with the fashion of a coupe.

The Stuttgart car maker explains its new model as an exclusive version of a sports car for five passengers and a large tailgate. If we look at the mouth to the top of the windshield, the layout has no differences to the standard Mercedes CLS. But going to the back though, the extended topline and side windows creates the exclusive style as they arc beyond the rear wheels.

The 250 CDI BlueEfficiency diesel, which is the entry-level generates 200bhp and 139g/km of CO2 emissions, fuel consumption is stated at 53.3mpg.
