Mercedes-Benz unveils CLS Shooting Brake

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled an estate version of its CLS four-door coupé, which will arrive in the UK in November.

Called Shooting Brake, and inspired by coupé-based estate cars of the 1970s, the model will be available in a choice of CLS 250 CDI 204bhp 2.2-litre diesel or CLS 350 CDI 265bhp 3.0-litre V6 diesel variants, with CO2 emissions of 139g/km and 159g/km respectively.

The four-cylinder CLS 250 CDI achieves 53.3mpg on the combined cycle, while the CLS 350 CDI achieves 47mpg.

Load volume will range from 590 to 1,550 litres, still some way behind the vast E-Class estate's 1,950-litre maximum, but greater than the C-Class estate's 1,500 litres.

Full pricing and specification will be announced closer to its launch.
