Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake 2013 review - Car Keys
The Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake is a coupe-estate - it mixes the style of a
coupe design with the practicality of an estate.
The lines across exterior really add to the streamlined design of the car
and the interior is sheer luxury, with full leather trim.
As to be expected from Mercedes, the price is a little steep. We find out
if the CLS Shooting Brake is worthy of such a price tag?

Mercedes CLS 500 Shooting Brake AMG Pack
2013 Mercedes CLS 500 4MATIC Shooting Brake AMG Pack
The CLS Shooting Brake is available with four different engine variants --
two diesel engines and two petrol engines. Features common to all engines
include the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission as well as the ECO
start/stop function. In addition, two models are available with all-wheel
drive: the CLS 350 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY and the CLS 500 4MATIC
The entry-level model is the CLS 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY producing 150 kW
(204 hp). Combined fuel consumption is 5.3 litres of diesel per 100
kilometres, an excellent level for this performance class and equivalent to
CO2 emissions of 139 grams per kilometre. Coming in above this are the two
six-cylinder models: the CLS 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY producing 195 kW (265
hp) and the CLS 350 BlueEFFICIENCY producing 225 kW (306 hp). The
top-of-the-range model is the CLS 500 BlueEFFICIENCY with a V8 biturbo engine producing 300 kW (408 hp).
The proportions of the CLS Shooting Brake are surprising but clearly those
of a coupé, and create a basic stance which makes it look ready for the
off: the long bonnet, narrow-look windows with frameless side windows, and
dynamic roof sloping back towards the rear. It is only when taking a second
look that it becomes clear that the Shooting Break actually has five doors
and offers "more" in terms of function.
No-one likes to have to compromise: even when the focus is not on the
practical elements of the design of the Shooting Brake (length x width x
height: 4956 x 1881 x 1413 mm), the new CLS model still has some trump
cards up its sleeve. With a load volume of between 590 and 1550 litres, the
luggage compartment offers a lot of room despite the flat, sporty lines of
the roof, and is easy to use thanks to the automatically opening tailgate
fitted as standard. A load compartment cover also protects luggage from
The standard air suspension at the rear helps to ensure optimum road
holding at all times. For additional flexibility, the rear seat backrests
can be folded down from the luggage compartment as standard. The rear seats
themselves provide room for three people, with individual seats on the
outsides and a third seat in the middle. The three saddle-type head
restraints on the rear seats barely affect the view towards the rear, and
can be lowered at the touch of a button by the driver. An optional trailer
coupling is also available.
It's all in a name: the origins of the name "Shooting Break"
Break, or the homonym Brake, was the name once given to carriages used to
"break" in wild horses and also to restrict (or "brake") their urge to
move, so that they could be put to use as work horses. Since the carts
could easily be broken as part of this process, people tended not to use
ones which they may have urgently needed for other purposes. Where
necessary, "Brakes" were often fitted out with variable bodies, which were
only really used to carry along anything that may have been necessary for
the hunt, for example. Any such vehicle which was used when going out
shooting was called a Shooting Brake or Shooting Break. Motorised Shooting
Brakes were popular in England in the 60s and 70s -- exclusive two-door
sports cars, which combined the luxury and style of a coupé with a larger
load compartment and large tailgate.

The Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake is the first car of its kind -- a four-door
coupe crossed with an estate. Although it looks like nothing else on the
road, rivals will include the BMW 5 Series Touring and the Jaguar XF
Sportbrake. Based on the CLS four-door coupe -- also the first of its kind
-- the Shooting Brake adds a much bigger 590-litre boot but maintains a
long and low roofline so its appears sporty despite the impressive space
inside. Engine choices include a four-cylinder and a six-cylinder diesel,
as well as the top-of-the-range CLS 63 AMG with a 549bhp 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8. Smooth, quiet and easy to drive,
the CLS Shooting Brake is perfect for the style-conscious buyer who still
needs space for the whole family.

Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake 250 CDI test
Van de tweede generatie Mercedes CLS is er nu een wonderschoon vormgegeven
Shooting Brake. We reden de viercilinder diesel die niet alleen voldoende
stil en krachtig is, maar ook verbaasd met een ongekend gunstig
brandstofverbruik. Schoonheid en verantwoord rijden gaan dus prima samen.

beetje alle niches in het modellengamma heeft opgevuld. Voor wie een
E-klasse Estate te gewoontjes is, brengt het merk nu namelijk een wat
chiquere variant in de vorm van de CLS Shooting Brake. Wij sturen de 500
met V8 door de herfstbladeren...
