Aesthetic appeal for the road.

There are personalties that inspire a whole generation. Because they do things a different way. Because they stand out from the crowd. Like the CLS Shooting Brake. It was never an estate car. Never a coupé. Always incomparable.


Trendsetting design
Always incomparable. Neither an estate nor a coupé: the CLS Shooting Brake. The new generation is just as impressive, with its extraordinary design idiom, progressive front end design and new MULTIBEAM  LED light system (optional).

Innovation with charisma. The new, optionally available MULTIBEAM LED lighting technology is revolutionary, too. With 24 individually controllable LEDs in each headlamp, the driving lights can be adjusted quickly and precisely.

Mercedes connect me
Perfectly networked. Individualised services have a name: Mercedes me. Part of this new world of experiences is Mercedes connect me, the networking of driver, vehicle and aspects of the driver’s private life.

Clearly in front. Comfortable and safe – on long journeys, too. DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and Stop&Go pilot helps the driver to maintain a safe distance and stay in the centre of the lane.

Load compartment management
Invitingly different. The generously-sized, variable-use load compartment with its use of exclusive materials is quite unique. The load compartment can optionally be fitted out with a designo wooden floor to give it a yacht look.


The present follows tradition: The lines of the CLS Shooting Brake are reminiscent of historical Mercedes sports cars that have exerted their fascination for decades. The most important visual feature: the so-called "Dropping Line" of the new side design.


This line of the CLS Shooting Brake begins at the upper edge of the headlamp, falling, tension-laden, towards the back, extending as far as the rear wings. Pronounced shoulder muscles underscore the character of this unique vehicle concept.


The side and rear present striking views with the rearward-running roofline and large tailgate. A long bonnet and high waistline with low frameless side windows create a breathtaking overall impression.


The extravagant-sporty side design of the CLS Shooting Brake is attention-catching and fascinating: The striking roofline, bold curved edges and gently domed surfaces all combine to express a completely new, exciting, design language.


The rear end design of the CLS Shooting Brake is both powerful and clear. Noteworthy too is the car's fastback with large tailgate. The upwards-tapering D-pillars and the muscularly-formed rear wings widen the rear of the vehicle downwards, giving it a particularly athletic aspect.


Exclusive equipment details enhance its sporty appearance: third brake light in LED-technology, tailgate with large window, broad chrome-plated grip strip, electromechanical opening and closing function. The visual impression is reinforced by the LED tail-lights that swing round forwards extending into the vehicle's flanks, displaying an innovative high-grade design and unique light pattern at night.


But those who wish to lend the expressive shapes of the CLS Shooting Brake an even more dynamic quality can do so by choosing the optional Exterior Sports package or the AMG Sports package.


The interior of the CLS Shooting Brake displays the same sporty exclusivity in terms of material quality and excellence of craftsmanship. From the dashboard to the luggage compartment it impresses with high-quality details that give the interior a handcrafted feel. Five colours in all are offered, including two interior concepts in leather involving several special colours (optional extra).


The monolithic cockpit with the high waistline of the CLS Shooting Brake creates an immediate powerful impression. In terms of their look and feel, the controls are of the highest quality. The displays and instrument are arranged so as to afford the greatest ergonomic comfort.


The three-tube instrument cluster features dials backed in white and a 10.9-cm TFT colour display. The sporty 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel in nappa leather with perforations in the grip sector and thumbrests, 12 buttons and DIRECT SELECT steering wheel paddles, provides "hands-on" driving dynamics. 


The doors are exemplary for the "cast in one piece" quality of the CLS Shooting Brake interior design: The high-grade decorative topstitching and the generous wood trim elements on the dashboard are elegantly carried over onto the doors. 


The CLS Shooting Brake offers more headroom in the rear than the CLS Coupé, two rear seats with individual seat character and a third seat in the centre.


With the optional Exclusive package and AMG Sports package the interior can be further personalised. The interior can be enhanced with the optional ambient lighting, which features three different light moods.


And finally, the optionally available designo wooden load compartment floor in open-pore American cherry wood with black inlays lends the CLS Shooting Brake an exclusive yacht ambience.


Flexibility included. You no longer need to choose between sports equipment and a major shopping trip. Because, with its unique mixture of sportiness and spaciousness, the CLS Shooting Brake is uncompromising. The extravagant designo wooden luggage compartment floor in American cherry wood is an optional extra which further accentuates the handcrafted character of the interior. With a luggage compartment sporting up to 1550 litres of storage volume, a sophisticated, exclusive yacht ambience has made its way into the CLS Shooting Brake. The new free-standing colour display of the head unit with a 20.3 cm screen diagonal contributes to the modern character of the CLS Shooting Brake. Other new features are the newly designed three-spoke sports steering wheel and many choice details which noticeably enhance the feeling of high quality in the interior.

High-quality details upgrade the interior of the CLS Shooting Brake. As an optional extra for even greater exclusivity, there is designo – the exclusive customisation programme which offers impressive paint finishes and truly top-class interior design.
