First appeared at the Goodwood Festival of speed, the all new Mercedes-Benz CLS shooting Brake’s entire specification details and prices are officially out now. The first generation CLS was first launched in 2004 and has accounted for 170,000 sales globally since then. With the introduction of the CLS Shooting Brake Mercedes-Benz is once again creating a new sector. Combining five seats and a large load space yet retaining its sleek styling, the CLS Shooting Brake is now available to order, priced from £49,360 OTR.


The CLS Shooting Brake is highly specified as standard, the equipment list including visible exhaust pipes; Becker® MAP PILOT (CLS 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Shooting Brake) or COMAND Online multimedia system (CLS 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Shooting Brake and CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake) and DAB; leather upholstery; Parktronic front and rear; metallic paint; Bi-Xenon headlights; and 18” alloy wheels.  For a £2,995 increase, 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. From October production, the Coupé 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.  The CLS Shooting Brake also includes additional standard specification over the CLS Coupé, such as the Easy-Pack Quickfold rear seat adjustment; Easy-Pack load compartment cover; and rear air suspension, helping 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.

Optional equipment exclusively for the CLS Shooting Brake includes: Easy-Pack load-securing kit with rear sill protector (£255); privacy glass (£365); aluminium rails (£870); manually folding tow bar (£880); AirMATIC semi-active air suspension (£1,150); and designo  American Cherry Wood load compartment with black inlays (£4,030), which provides the luggage compartment with a touch of elegance normally associated with yachts. The elegant design of the Shooting Brake (length x width x height: 4,956 x 1,881 x 1,416 mm) enables a frontal area of 2.30 m² and a Cd value of 0.29, making a significant contribution to the efficiency and refinement of the vehicle.

The CLS Shooting Brake is available with three different engine variants – two diesel engines and one petrol engine. Features common to all engines include the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission, as well as the ECO start/stop function. The CLS 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Shooting Brake produces 204 hp, with a combined fuel consumption of 22.66kmpl and CO 2   emissions of 139 g/km. The CLS 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Shooting Brake generates 265bhp, combined fuel consumption of 20.02kmpl , and 161 g/km CO 2 . The CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake emits 235 g/km CO 2   and offers 11.9kmpl.

Efficiency is also increased by the standard electro-mechanical power steering EPS (Electric Power Steering). The EPS improves economy and enables another innovation to be implemented – Active Park Assist. The CLS Shooting Brake is not only able to detect parking spaces, but can also park automatically.
