    Yes I can see that it is large, I wonder if that will limit the sales, I have to stop so many times as I cannot pass through where the average car does

    It's certainly a big beauty but as you say the size of these newer models is starting to impact on practicality on the UK roads and car parks. No problem in the States of course..

    I think I might be finding myself in the minority (again) but I do not find this car at all attractive.......nor am I clear as to its market in terms of a practical alternative to.......well most estate cars.

    True,,, there has always been the real love or absolute hate for the CLS

    I like it :) :)

    Obviously not a car for carrying loads of stuff, but there are many others similar.

    A CLS SB will be my next car. I think they are wonderful. I'd love one.

    Cough *estate/hearse* cough ... :rolleyes:

    I really like the CLS but this is just NOT pretty even in AMG guise. It does make me smile how it's basically an estate version of the car but 'OH NO' Mercedes must call it a "shooting brake" and provide the etimology of where its roots are set to justify the name.

    Most amusing how the advertising/sales machine works, its almost like "we certainly can't call it an estate version of the CLS it has to be more grand than that ... we're adding thousands to the price so must warrant it with a suitable name tag ...

    I really don't see the appeal ... obviously ... :rolleyes:

    They would need to be very skinny or left to decompose a bit to get them through that door

    Indeed, a very narrow rear door at the bottom.
