The CLS is as provocative as you can get for a mainstream production sedan. Mercedes-Benz is looking to ride the wave of this successful model by introducing another model bearing the same name…the CLS Shooting Brake.

Mercedes-Benz design language has always been at the cutting edge of both technology and style. The CLS SB incorporates these principles brilliantly. Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Mercedes‑Benz, explains. "It (the CLS Shooting Brake) stands for the enhanced design idiom of Mercedes-Benz which is oriented towards aesthetic, avant-garde principles". Supporting this statement, the CLS SB flirts with design influences from private jets to yachts. Take, for example, the rear luggage compartment; an optional Designo wooden floor complete with brushed aluminum rails invokes elements of a yacht’s deck. Outside, the Shooting Brake takes on a new personality with its now seamlessly integrated luggage compartment to complete the sleek jet-like silhouette.

While personalization still seems to be at the forefront for most CLS owners, Mercedes-Benz is offering five different interior color options along with five alternative trim designs with three quality leathers to choose from.

Performance is never far off the mark for Mercedes-Benz. The CLS SB comes in range of engine packages; from the CLS250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY with 53.3mpg to the CLS 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY producing 265hp. We could potentially see an AMG beast as well, but no official word has been issued.
