In a bid to offer competitive products with the likes of BMW and Audi, Mercedes-Benz will offer a wagon version of the upcoming second-generation CLS. The car will compete directly with vehicles like the new BMW 5 Series GT and Audi A7 Sportback.

Based on the same architecture as the CLS sedan and, therefore, the E-Class, the CLS Wagon (or Estate) is expected to arrive late in 2011 as a 2012 model. The CLS sedan is due out later this year. According to a report in the U.K.’s AutoCar, this new model is part of a larger plan by Mercedes to use existing platforms for more models in an effort to reduce costs.

The CLS Wagon will take its design inspiration from the Concept Fascination, pictured above. A new concept car, set to be unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in a weeks time, should also give some clues to the future of Mercedes design.

AutoCar also reports that a new lineup of turbocharged and direct-injection V6 ad V8 engines will be used in the new CLS and CLS Wagon, which should help improve fuel consumption by as much as 25 percent over the current powerplants. Those engines will arrive in a facelifted CL model due out later this year.
