Review Summary
It’s called a Shooting Brake which, to the person on the street, is essentially a coupe with a tailgate. A sort of jumped-up estate, if you will.

Review Summary
Opinions vary as to the attractiveness of the CLS, but it's a comfortable car and notably pleasant to drive, though not as sporty as the power outputs suggest.

Review Summary
It's capable of covering large distances with a high level of comfort and style, yet in the right conditions it's exciting and capable.

Review Summary
This makeover – which focuses on cosmetic touches and clever new LED headlights – extends the CLS’s unique appeal, while this creamy six-cylinder diesel is the engine to go for.

Review Summary
Few cars combine practicality and desirability quite as convincingly as the CLS Shooting Brake. True, an E-class Estate is cheaper and bigger again, but it lacks the wow factor of what is one of the most striking Mercedes designs of recent years.

Review Summary
If you want space, style and comfort – and have the money to pay for it – the Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake is in a class of its own.
