Here we have the new Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake, the company’s rival for models such as the 5 Series Touring, XF Sportbreak or A6 Avant.

The German model comes with generous dimensions such as 4,956mm long, 1,881mm wide and 1,413mm tall. Under the bonnet we will find two diesel units, namely a 2.1-liter with 201hp and a more powerful 3.0-liter V6 offering 261 horses.
