The new Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake
For all of that luxury, there is also plenty of practicality too. The back seats split fold. There are neat storage spaces around the vehicle, including under the floor. By looking at it and reading the first few lines of this article, you would probably assume that the vehicle is an estate car, you’re slightly off in that respect. It’s more of a coupe with an estate rear end, according to a few reviews. That’s what the Shooting Brake description is all about.
The CLS Shooting Brake is behind the likes of the Audi A7 and the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. Inside there is an overwhelming feeling of quality. The vehicle come painted in Magno Cashmere White matt paint. This adds a great contrast to the rest of the vehicle.
The interior has a 590 litre boot which is bigger than the A6 Avant and the 5 Series Touring. These two are well and truly installed within the “estate” category. The Shooting Brake is indeed a spacious five seater. The driver will find it easy to navigate the controls, as they are very close by. The inside has a fantastic design which is very pleasing on the eye.
The most popular versions here in the UK are expected to be the diesels. There will be a 201 BHP 250 CDI along with a 261 BHP CDI. The 261 BHP is the better value for money option in our opinion, car like this needs to have more power to utilise.
The CLS saloon is a great car to drive, with excellent handling at the same time. The Shooting Brake version is question is no different. The upgrade to full air suspension, costing £1,150 will give even greater handling to the vehicle. Well worth the purchase.
If you can afford it, the AMG Sport version looks spectacular. The 19 inch wheels and the spectacular headlights really stand out.
Inside out the Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake is an excellent car to own. The only downside is that you will need to spend a lot on upgrades to really get the best out of the car.
