    That's going to be a striking car.

    can't wait to see it

    hope it has the panoramic roof option.

    A shooting Brake was always a coupe (2 door) converted to a three door.

    This is a CLS Estate.

    Wonder if it will have 2 or 3 seats up back.

    So, a car for those who love the CLS but need to carry stuff! :)

    Like all recent MBs, will no doubt look a lot better in the metal! Could become another niche icon... :)

    Looks a bit like someone's chopped an Audi Q7.
    Quite like it though.

    Could be my dads next car, after 7 years in a S211 he's not over keen on the S212 but its ok...

    This however he loves.

    What's it likely to cost though? £60K?

    ^ Yep,


    THe S212 he specd up was close on £50K this will probably be another 10K like for like.

    The S212 though he isn't excited about buying, and at £50k you should be, the CLS however he loves the look.

    His last S211 he kept for 7 years so he would rather have something he loves than does the job..

    I like this very much. A very good looking machine. I think two things are likely to influence UK demand: (1) Availability of three rear seats (2) AWD as an option.

    With these additions, there's no excuse for buying an Audi S6 / RS6.

    I reckon it'll still only have 2 seats in the back - otherwise it'd surely steal sales from the E-class wagon.

    Needs roof rails to finish off the line. Somehow naked without them. See pic with E Class (?) in the background for comparison.

    Think my dad will like that.

    A replacement for his S211 as he has not been taken by the S212.
