The New Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake… for the Avant Purist



Many Fuelfed drivers are avid avant enthusiasts. When most manufacturers are dumping the traditional wagon format for the big butt hatch back ie… the BMW 5 series GT, Mercedes decided to put the gorgeous CLS Shooting Brake into production to restore our faith. It seems to combine the CLS with the not so popular R series but the lines are pure station wagon… hooray!



Some the CAD stylings are lost on the production model, like the bi-wing mirrors, pano-roof and flush door pulls, but the lines still pure. We believe the production wheels and smoothed nose are improvements.

We’re just glad not all manufacturers are loping towards the AMC Pacer eye sore that BMW has.
