Mercedes fired the first unveiling a wagon based on CLS, which leaves no one indifferent. The Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake could pave the way for other manufacturers such as BMW, whose rumors already announce a break in the series 6 variant, called Gran Touring for the occasion. But beyond the usefulness of this type of vehicle, what do you think of the concept and the style of the star of the car?
Mercedes took advantage of the large gathering of Goodwood Festival of Speed the weekend last finally presenting CLS Shooting Brake. The German mark also held a very nebulous overview of the more evil version.
Mercedes has surprised by unveiling the New CLS Shooting Brake, which incorporates the CLS databases by adding a touch of utility and practicality. But beyond the technical considerations, many have criticized or on the contrary adored the style proposed by this new Mercedes, all the Mercedes AMG version has already been disclosed (mean that we lose no time in Mercedes!). In addition to this novelty, we learned this week that BMW might develop a vehicle of the same type that would take over the base of the new series 6. Finally, it remains only to wait to see if Audi occurs to bring the trio to full and that a new segment is created. Then, when an A7 Sportback break?
The AMG CLS Shooting Brake takes over the style of the sedan adding a hatchback and a very dynamic break degaine. The CLS Shooting Brake will resume almost all engines of the sedan. Good news, the AMG 63 is also on the program.
Mercedes has held a report by bringing an AMG copy camouflaged at Goodwood in addition to less Sport Shooting Brake version.
A car left masked as the Renault Clio 4 RS but failed to express themselves on the English ground. There is really nothing better that an AMG 63 to smoking tires rear and the CLS Shooting Brake is already also announced at ease that other models of the AMG range!
From Concept Into Reality
“All the cars that are passed to the history have been designed according to a perfect mix of art and science. (…) The Shooting Brake the is better that any other car on the market”, says Dieter Zetsche, CEO of Mercedes-Benz.
The dimensions of the car are clearly close to those of a cut model, and this impression is accentuated by the slender Windows and roof line that made that one with the trunk; is however, that on closer closer that one realizes the misunderstanding: the CLS Shooting Brake is a true 5-door, which offers more in terms of amenities as a simple cut.
The CLS Shooting Brake is perfect for those who want to stand out but without sacrificing on the sportsmanship or on cargo space when the time comes to travel. Powered by a 4 cylinder in-line of CLS250 or a 6 cylinder of CLS350, it reaches all the same between 235 and 250 km/h. Another feature: the floor of the trunk is covered with wood varnished, adding a touch of luxury. The constructor will unveil later other features and the price.
But you, for your part and even if these cars are not in your scoop car budget, what is your view on these luxury breaks? The style you like it? Or do you find ca poorly drawn and finally completely undeniably of interest?
