Mercedes-Benz is often credited with starting the new fad of four-door coupe models in the auto industry when it launched the CLS in 2004. Now, the company is aiming to once again flex its design muscles, and presented the new Shooting Break concept, before its debut at the Beijing Motor Show later this week.
While most of the industry has gotten used to the Shooting Brake nomenclature, MB decided to use the more literal Break name, reminiscing of the actual origin, which was given to coaches used to break wild horses.
But enough with the name lesson. All you need to know is that this model, alongside the F800 Style we saw in Detroit are going to represent the next generation CLS variants, both in four-door coupe and shooting break style.
As you can see, it borrows from the F800, but still presents elements from the slightly older Concept Fascination. Also, it will definitely attract those who want a bit of an utilitarian side to their luxury models and don’t really like the BMW 5 Series GT.
As an added bonus, the Mercedes-Benz Shooting Break concept also showcases the future MB powertrains that will be sported by the CLS and other MB models. From the 306 HP 3.5-liter V6 unit to other engines like a turbocharged 435 HP 4.6-liter V8, and to top it all off, the AMG-prepped turbocharged, direct injection 5.5-liter V8 capable of 563 HP and 664 lb-ft of torque.
Overall, the new Mercedes-Benz Shooting Break concept is going to make a lot of fans extremely happy and excited for the next generation CLS. Check it out in the photo gallery below.
