According to Mercedes, the second-generation CLS continues to "define its kind", with the new CLS Shooting Brake Mercedes-Benz combining five seats and a large load space while retaining the sleek styling typified by the original CLS, which was launched in 2004.
The new models are highly specified as standard, with the equipment list including visible exhaust pipes, and a Becker Map Pilot for the CLS 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Shooting Brake or Comand Online multimedia system for the CLS 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Shooting Brake and CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake.
Other standard features include DAB, leather upholstery, Parktronic front and rear, metallic paint, Bi-Xenon headlights and 18" alloy wheels.
Meanwhile, the CLS Shooting Brake AMG Sport offers full LED headlights with Intelligent Light System and Adaptive Highbeam Assist, AMG bodystyling, sports suspension and brakes, sports steering wheel and pedals and 19" AMG alloy wheels.
Beginning with October's production, the Coupe version of the CLS will now also feature the AMG Sport replacing the Sport line.
In addition to the various interior colours, multiple trim designs and various types of leather to choose from, there is also a choice of three high-gloss exclusive wood types: brown burr walnut, black ash and light-brown poplar, as well as the use of piano lacquer trim elements.
Mercedes has also revealed that he CLS Shooting Brake will include additional standard specification over the CLS Coupe, including Easy-Pack Quickfold rear seat adjustment, Easy-Pack load compartment cover and rear air suspension, in order to ensure optimum road holding at all times.
In addition to the five seats, the CLS Shooting Brake also features a cargo space measuring up to 1,550 litres, while optional equipment includes an Easy-Pack load-securing kit with rear sill protector, privacy glass, aluminium rails, manually folding tow bar and AirMATIC semi-active air suspension, providing added comfort and class for drivers to savour.
