However, the Europeans have always had a thing for wagons, especially fast ones, and have never stopped making them, although not many on this side of the Atlantic buy them.
The solution, make a cool wagon and call it something different altogether, e.g. Shooting Brake. It’s been a name given to fast wagons in the past, and now Mercedes-Benz will use this name for two of its newest models, the CLS and the CLC.
The CLS Shooting Brake has been expected for a long time now, and will be similar to the concept version which has been shown at motor shows around the world.
Engine choices for the CLS Shooting Brake will be similar to other CLS models, while the CLC will get a host of new engines, including four-cylinder turbos.
Expect these new models to start hitting the showrooms by late 2012.
