The Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake is a special high-performance wagon -- and today I'm reviewing it. First I'll show you all the quirks and features of the CLS63 Shooting Brake, and then I'm driving the CLS63 to review the driving experience of this special AMG Wagon.

  • You forgot to mention some additional differences to the E-class: - The seats were available in Designo line leather that looked really nice in my opinion ( - The dashboard was fitted with this nice leather lining (most prominently seen above the glove box), which was a generation ahead at the time and later introduced to a lot of other Mercedes models - The new Multi-Beam LED (which is awesome!) was first available in the CLS and not an option for the E-Class until the current generation I always wanted a Shooting Brake but could not for the life of me find one with the options I viewed as needed - because these cars are so darn uncommon even here in Germany. In the end I settled for a more reasonable 2014 E-class sedan and I like it - but I get a little shot of envy every time I meet a Shooting Brake on the road :/ Edit: Styling 7?? You got to be kidding me - this is the most beautiful sedan out there and cannot have the same score as the E-Class. Also the quality rating should be higher then E-Class as the interior was more towards S-Class level at the time.

  • "Shooting Brake" doesn't mean "Wagon". its a long downward sloping rear roofline. The Hyundai Veloster is a shooting brake.

  • Oh Doug, you missed the "auxiliary cargo cover" that's removable from the tailgate. The slopey line makes the tailgate too far back so the cargo cover can't reach all the way back to the tailgate so they had to stick an auxiliary cargo cover to the tailgate, and it's removable :)

  • Shooting Brake = a coupe made into a wagon (Volvo 1800ES for instance). MB calls this 4-door a “shooting brake” because they call the CLS class a 4 door coupe. It’s really not a traditional SB but MB has odd nomenclature. The AMG version of the CLS shooting brake is the coolest car ever and I’m happy to see one in the states. How did he get it over here?

  • Station wagons "shooting brake" "estate wagons", etc... whatever you want to call them dont sell well because they are a outdated design and yesterdays SUV's with less room and comfort. They are not a desirable style and havent been for 40 years now. In todays world a luxury SUV is faster, better ground clearance, more luxury with more usable room. I know there is 1% out there in the automotive press that still likes to hold firm their anti SUV platform and pushes station wagons but they are fighting a lost battle.

    • This is true in USA, but not so much in Britain, Germany, Australia, New Zealand. Make no mistake, SUV’s are obviously everywhere in these places too, but there is a huge appreciation of Wagons/Estates/SBs still. And plenty of the European brands make hot Estates for these markets. To say they aren’t desirable isn’t really correct, just not as desirable in USA. Audi sell nearly 80,000-100,000 A6/S6/RS6 wagons every year.

  • Mercedes makes some great looking station wagons. That’s exactly what we need here in the United States. We need our domestic car companies to start building a lot more station wagons based off a variety of different models, just as they did back in the 60’s and 70’s. They also need to build more coupes and convertibles. Their claims that they don’t sell are total BS. Audi, Mercedes, and BMW have no such problems when it comes to selling such a variety of cars. GM and Ford have issues because they only build a single model, and then they’ll base it off a car that’s simply WAY TOO SMALL to be converted into other types of models.
