Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake isn’t going to the U.S. image

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz has recently announced that the CLS Shooting Brake won’t be launched in the United States.

According to the car manufacturer, the new Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake, as well as the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake, won’t arrive in the company’s showrooms overseas so the customers in the United States will have to settle for the four-door coupe instead of the estate. On the Old Continent, the all-new Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake, and its high-performance version, will be launched in October, when the first units of the model will arrive at dealerships.

Mercedes-Benz says that the new CLS Shooting Brake is 4,956 mm long (195,2 in), 1,881 mm wide (74,1 in) and 1,413 mm tall (55,6 in), which means that it’s 16 mm longer and 3 mm lower than the four-door coupe version. The new Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake will be available in five trim designs, with five interior colors and three varieties of leather. Interior choices will also include the high-gloss black ash, high-gloss brown burr walnut and satin-finish light-brown poplar.

The Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake will be offered with four different engines, two diesel and two petrol, as the CLS350 with 302 HP from a 3.5 liter V6, the CLS500 with a 4.7 liter V8 producing 402 HP, the 350CDI with 265 BHP and 457 lb-ft of torque and the entry-level 2.1 liter four-cylinder for the CLS250 CDI.
