Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake priced at £49,360 OTR in the UK

Article by Anita Panait, on August 22, 2012

British consumers could now post their orders for the Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake. With a starting price of £49,360 OTR, the five-seat CLS Shooting Brake boasts of sleek styling and a large cargo space of around 1,550 litres. The CLS Shooting Brake features as standard equipment the following: visible exhaust pipes, leather upholstery, Parktronic front and rear, metallic paint, Bi-Xenon headlights, 18” alloy wheels and DAP.

The CLS 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Shooting Brake comes with the Becker® MAP PILOT while the CLS 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Shooting Brake and CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake come with the COMAND Online multimedia system.

For an additional £2,995, one could have the CLS Shooting Brake AMG Sport fitted with full LED headlights with Intelligent Light System and Adaptive Highbeam Assist and AMG bodystyling.

Additional features include sports suspension and brakes, sports steering wheel and pedals, and 19” AMG alloy wheels. From October production, the Coupé version of the CLS will feature the AMG Sport, replacing the Sport line.

A customer could choose from various interior colours, multiple trim designs and different types of leather. A customer could also choose from 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 sports more standard specification over the CLS Coupé: Easy-Pack Quickfold rear seat adjustment, Easy-Pack load compartment cover, and rear air suspension.

Amazing dimensions: a lengthy hood, narrow-looking windows, frameless windows on the sides, vibrant sweeping roof angling down to the back. The four-door coupe was born in 2003, and Mercedes-Benz fully established the CLS-Class as a new stylish icon. The dimensions are still the same, while everything has changed: this style trendsetter’s second generation has had a completely new makeover.

The first thing that catches the eye is the inventive front styling, which reminds many of the SLS AMG. It looks like the radiator grille is not part of the bonnet; it has actually been separately built.

This shifts focus to the lengthy, sporty hood even more. A large, central star dominates the grille, as it emphasises the vehicle’s connection to other Mercedes-Benz coupés and reinforces the brand’s identity. The big, lengthened dark air intakes have black grilles that also add to the car's sporty look.

Other distinctive features are the high-performance LED headlights that are the first to provide every normal light settings and functions but with LED technology. This invention creates an inspiring design - it is separated inside into three arrows from top to bottom: the top has an LED indicator, below is an attractive LED side light that has low beam settings.

The side light is also apparent when the dipped beam is turned on, creating a distinct and separate night design. The lowest headlight level contains the main beam and night settings. A total 71 LEDs create a unique look, and they offer an appreciably augmented road view compared with systems that came before.
