Spy Shots: Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake does some winter testing

Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake

After Mercedes unveiled the new generation CLS , rumors started to circulate about a Shooting Brake version. And while this isn’t the first time the vehicle has been caught testing, it is yet another confirmation that the Shooting Brake is happening, however strange it may seem.

The up and coming CLS Shooting Brake was in Northern Sweden doing some winter testing when our spy photographers caught up with it. If anyone expects to see great things from this new model, we recommend they stop dreaming. The Shooting Brake model will only be a station wagon version of the CLS and will feature the same design language as its sedan brother. The technology and engine lineup will also be shared.

This means that when the CLS Shooting Brake finally makes its appearance, it will be powered by a direct-injected 3.5-liter V6 capable of producing 306 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. An AMG version is also a strong possibility.

The Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake is expected to be unveiled sometime in 2012.

You’d have to scrutinize this as some of its features are deceptive; for an instance, I assumed it’s high-end when it’s actually not.

I like its technically installed components as they look greatly innovative. The added features for both styling and function are impressive too.

I love its aggressive fascia and wheels. And are those LEDs on the mirror covers?

I was fooled by the rear of this vehicle; I thought it was convertible! Good thing it’s not. Digressing, I think the engine is only appropriate for this.

I’m sure that this concept of Mercedes is not really the true design. Although, it’s simple but it will make changes as it launched.

Whatever the concept of Mercedes is, I really appreciated it because consistency of latest design is their mission and that’s an accomplishment.Whoever has the negative side, I’ll take the positive thoughts of this.
