Based on the CLS and previewed by the earlier Shooting Brake concept, the sleek wagon will be built alongside the CLS and the E-Class at Mercedes' production plant in Singdelfingen, Germany.
“The decision to build the CLS Shooting Brake underscores the leading role of Mercedes-Benz in regards of innovative passenger car concepts and design - and that is exactly what the customers expect from us,” Mercedes boss Dieter Zetsche said.
Although the luxury carmaker is keeping mum on the sporty wagon's finer details, power options are likely to come from the same petrol and diesel engines available with the new CLS.
The sedan range opens with the 150kW 2.1 litre four-cylinder diesel CDI BlueEfficiency model, topping out with a 305kW petrol V8.
A top-shelf AMG version of the CLS Shooting Brake has also been spied recently, and power here will likely be drawn from the same 386kW 5.5 litre bi-turbo V8 engine powering the sedan version.
