The new CLS Shooting Brake.
A new era takes shape.
Aesthetic Coupé with innovative spatial concept.
Exceptional, confident, masculine and attractive – the design of the CLS Shooting Brake emanates passion and confidence. It is thus an inimitable reflection of the excitingly distinguished lifestyle of those highly discerning customers that have already admitted to their fascination by the four-door CLS Coupé and its internationally acclaimed design.
The CLS Shooting Brake makes no compromises in continuing the pursuit of design and innovation and proves beyond doubt that the Mercedes-Benz claim to leadership is rightly deserved. The unique Shooting Brake merges outstanding design with agility, extended spaciousness and great variability: a CLS of new proportions.
The proportions of the CLS Shooting Brake are surprising, though undeniably Coupé, and make the vehicle look as if ready to pounce: the long bonnet, the narrow window line with
frameless side windows, the roof line flowing back dynamically. It takes a second glance to realise that the Shooting Brake features four doors and a large tailgate.
Elegant materials and meticulous craftsmanship.
From the cockpit to the luggage compartment, the interior is distinguished through the highest-quality details, reminiscent of an artisan's opus. Equally distinguishing is the diversity of options for individualisation. The optional designo wooden luggage compartment floor conveys the elegance of a yacht's wooden deck combined with an undercurrent of fascination for technology and precision. Select hand-crafted American Cherry veneers and smoked oak inlays, cut into three-millimetre strips by high-precision lasers, refine the design of the luggage compartment floor. The brushed aluminium strips not only protect the wood's surface but also prevent any luggage from sliding around. Thanks to the electrically opening EASY-PACK tailgate, the 590-litre luggage compartment behind
the rear seats is easy to load. The rear seat backrests, foldable individually or as a whole from the luggage compartment using EASY-PACK Quickfold, provide for high variability and increase the available space up to a volume of 1550 litres.
A vehicle concept of new proportions.
The rear compartment of the CLS Shooting Brake provides space for three passengers and even greater headroom than the CLS Coupé. The outer seats look to be individual seats, with further emphasis available through the optional two-tone leather appointments. Entirely new is the porcelain-colour interior that conveys an air of class previously only ever available in the S-Class. A variety of trim elements are available that either harmoniously match the colour or provide a contrast, such as satin-finish light-brown poplar or the AMG version in carbon/piano black. The innovative use of materials – including the interplay between satin-finish and polished metal surfaces – is yet another aspect which gives the CLS Shooting Brake the status of a design icon.
The technology of the CLS Shooting Brake is no less innovative than its design. The optional dynamic full-LED high-performance headlamps not only emphasise the unmistakable appearance of the CLS but fascinate through the daylight-like tone. 95 percent of CLS Coupé customers have already opted for the unique lighting system, which is not yet available in any other vehicle anywhere in the world. Following continuous development, for the first time ever, it now offers CLS customers a combination of LED technology and the Intelligent Light System with Adaptive Highbeam Assist, thereby providing an entirely new quality of illumination at night. In addition, more than a dozen driving assistance systems contribute to the prevention of accidents as well as a reduction in accident severity.
The Driving Assistance package Plus, for instance, is available in combination with DISTRONIC PLUS and PRE-SAFE® Brake. Further features such as ATTENTION ASSIST or Active Parking Assist make driving the Shooting Brake both safe and comfortable.
Sporty driving pleasure with a touch of class.
Air suspension and electromechanical direct steering guarantee comfort and sportiness. Powerful and efficient drive systems merge driving pleasure and agility with environmental responsibility. All petrol and diesel engines come with ECO start/stop, 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission and air-sprung level-controlled rear axle as standard.
The electronically controlled AIRMATIC damper system is available in conjunction with the V8-cylinder engines or as an optional extra elsewhere. Furthermore, two variants with all-wheel drive are available. The CLS Shooting Brake is the alternative for those who wish to distinguish themselves from the mainstream and who wish to travel in style without surrendering either sportiness or luggage capacity.
