Spied: 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake

Spy Shots

We finally get a peek of the CLS Shooting Brake, and it looks a lot like the concept.

Let's get this out of the way right at the beginning, calling a five-door car a “shooting brake”, rather than a wagon is not only a bold move, but also a blatant marketing ploy. The Germans have become obsessed with selling family vehicles which they hope people won't notice are family vehicles (see the BMW 5-Series GT), but we still figured it out. Mercedes-Benz hasn't exactly kept it a secret that they intended to build this car, but this is still the first real look we've gotten.

As it turns out, it seems to look almost exactly the same as the concept, which debuted at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show. This is good news, as it is one of the most striking wagons (that's right, I said it) we've seen since the CTS-V Wagon. We think it looks so good that Mercedes could probably just drop the act and call it a wagon, but that doesn't seem likely.
