Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake




After a 4 door coupe, now a 4 door Shooting Brake.
Which is basically a hatchback version, or a wagon, of the 4 door.

This is pretty much the car we saw as a concept over 2 years ago. So there is absolutely no surprises here.
It's also too bad the CLS, 4 or 5 door, isn't getting the glass roof treatment. It would look great on the hatchback.


This is the original concept.
So we've seen that shape for a while now...

Vince, you forgot to add for those in North America ....

Thanks a lot MB for hating Americans, as usual.

I think MB likes Americans. That's why they keep all the design-challenged misfits in Europe! What a concept though--a wagon with less trunk space than most sedans. And I assume it can't tow anything either. What's next? A 4x4 SUV that can't go off road?

On another note: your "prove you're not a robot" is becoming unnecessarily complicated. My bank has less stuff to re-type!

Certainly looks better than the sedan version, but the proportions are so exaggerated as to look almost cartoonish, rather than elegant.

So glad that's not coming here. Hideous. Reminds me of the R class that failed so bad.

What a waste of engineering. I bet the visibility from the rear is ground-breakingly wonderful. I thought the original concept of station wagon was space and functionality. Oh and by the way it's ugly as sin.

A what? Shitty Brake? I bet it does shit all over your wallet when it breaks.

Quick Spiffington, load the rifles. I want to shoot a couple of tigers on the way to the Hob Knobbler.
