So many sharp angles, I'm afraid this E-Class Pancake Wagon may cut me.
I just fell off my chair...this thing rocks
Loved the original CLS (when it was actually original).. not at all a fan of the new one(s).
Almost doesn't count. And this is very "almost" on so many levels. Taken as a whole, it's too reminescent of Merc's "dumpy" years: the previous E & C and the current S. It's clearly better than any of those--but not by enough. Not with the A7 & CTS wagon to contend with.
This is awful. It's as if the unemployed Solara designers were hired by Mercedes.
Simply Ugly. Merceds-Benz is copying the Chrysler 200.
I agree that the sedan is a beautiful car. This thing, not so much.
These retarded-named Shooting Brake stuff is both infantile and vulgar. Only bratty little trust-funders would want one of these.
"Only bratty little trust-funders would want one of these."No. No we don't.
Americans have never seen wagons as being premium cars (unlike europeans) even when they cost as much as Town & Country wagons & Electra Wagons used to. And "hatchback" is sonominous with "cheap" in the USA. Mercedes apparently learned nothing from Chrysler and has decided that a hatchback/wagon would sell well in the USA if priced in the $50k-$90k range. --Dunkaumofs!!!
Americans want something higher off the ground than wagons/hatchbacks...How can anyone not understand this? Even Europeans and Asians are rushing to buy Crossovers....It is not just a USA thing. Look it up...BMW can't make enough X1 and X3 for other markets.
Are you sure this isn't the economical new AMC Hornet Sportabout?
I always thought a "shooting brake" was meant to be like a two door wagon.MB obviously see it as a coupe wagon, which includes a 4 door.
Could be worse, for a total balls up, Google "Ferarri Daytona Shooting Brake". They look like a hearse for a playboy midget. Reliant Scimitar is an example on how it should be done.
This is no more a "shooting brake" than the CLS sedan is a "4 door coupe". Love it or hate it, the Ferrari Four is a true shooting brake.
