Mercedes have announced quite some time ago that they will not be sending the CLS
estate Shooting Brake over to the United States and they’re now telling Europeans something about it.
It’s just how much they can’t have one, unless they’re ready to fork out an impressive amount of money. This is because, as it stands, the cheapest 2013 Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake you can have is €61.761 which is roughly 75.850 USD.
That’s quite the amount of dough you need to pay for what’s basically an estate with a 2.2 liter four pot diesel. Oh yes, that genuinely is the entry level model of the CLS Shooting Brake.
In fairness, it’s quite a diesel which pumps out 205 horsepower and, thanks to a seven speed automatic transmission can turn around to quite an impressive fuel economy and only emits 139 g of CO2 per km.
Should your heart desire a more capable 3.0 liter V6 diesel with 265 horsepower, you’ll need to pay at least 65.629 euros, 68.365 if you want four wheel drive with it.
Moving into the petrol range, the Mercedes CLS 350 Shooting Brake V6 is available with 306 horsepower and the CLS500 V8 comes with 408 horsepower.
The first one costs 66.818 whereas the more powerful relative is 82.229 euros.
Once again, four wheel drive is an extra and if you want it with the V8 engine it will cost 84.966 all in. Naturally, the top of the line 2013 Mercedes CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake will be a fair bit more expensive.
The twin-turbocharged 5.5 liter pumping out 557 horsepower will start at €117.512. The options list is a whole different story.
